Is nonstop westbound NYC-Taipei possible with pax? CI flies the eastbound TPE-NYC nonstop in the winter(stronger winds), but never the westbound... Are there no aircraft capable of doing this? (carrying normal load of passengers)

CO manages EWR-CLK nonstop.

CI's A340 does not fly over the poles like CO772.

So CI has to stop at ANC, along with Korean Air, Cathay Pacific for westbound flight.

As Jim said, EWR-HKG uses the polar route, which has almost no headwinds.

But, a polar route would be impossible for flights to/from TPE, as it must overfly Chinese airspace, and China denys overflight rights to Taiwanese carriers at the moment.

BTW, CX goes JFK-YVR-HKG, not via ANC

CX is reverting back to YYZ-ANC (tech.)-HKG flights after having done YYZ-YVR (tech.)-HKG flights because of security measures at ANC which added costs.
