I went to their website and it says the fares are $88 to HKT and CGK whilst it is now $888 to MLE. I wonder whether they will actually make any money, especially with the close proximity of HKG.

I hope they start services next year to somewhere in Australia like Sydney and somewhere in Europe like Lisbon would be awesome too.

Their website also says their looking into getting 787's or 350's!

That's an outdated article...pre-A350-XWB. I would be curious to know if that's changed.

What happened to the proposed Hawaii flights?

Those are in Macau's local currency, MOP, but translate to USD, US11 to HKT/CGK.

But How do I get to Macau to get that deal?? Id consider it if I non-reved to Macau, but thats very tricky to do compared to HKG from the US. I would have to stop in some asian city from the US then get to MAcau then try the confirmed deal to HKT or CGK hehe.

I went to Macau this summer by taking a jet powered boat from HKG. It was pretty nice. Macau is a great place! Hotel rooms and service is so cheap!

These are operated by Uniair though aren't they? The aircraft are just painted in EVA colours. Nonetheless, still awesome to see such variety on the Taiwan to Macau flights.
