Welcome to Taipei






This was the 2nd time I flew with China Airlines, like the 1st time, I was very happy with their inflight service, catering and IFE. It might not be SQ or EK quality. But with the price they were charging, what more couldone ask for?

I look forward to flying with them again soon  Smile

Excellent TR!

Flew them LAX-TPE about 3 years ago and they were quite good!

I still like EVA a little better.

These seats don't go flat, do they?

It's a bit surprising seeing Cathay Pacific flying with China Airlines xD

No, none of China Airlines' J seats are flat.

They did downgrade certain stuff in 2008 so it's not all accurate.

Great TR. Did SYD-TPE-FRA return in CI's J class last year July and would not hesitate to fly with them again. As you mentioned, they are not on par with SQ, EY or EK but in my opinion it is a great product if you consider the low price you pay compared to the "big boys".

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

No, they don't. It was at an angle

hopefully I will be travelling on the same route this March, so I'll be able to give you all a more up-to-date TR  Smile

What a pity Eva no longer flies to SYD  Sad

Anyway, please stay tuned for the next instalment, TPE-HKG on CI's B744  Wink

Looking forward to this...Great trip report on CI's A333! Glad you were able to view your aircraft from the large windows, unlike us boxed in some remote corner with high windows that was our gate for the flight to the US.

Really nice report - I was quite surprised with the quality of their catering - I thought it looked great!

I have heard bad things about CI's Y class, but I think I would fly J class with them without any hesitation!

As previous people have mentioned - they are value for money!

Thanks again!
