I had trouble booking EVA Air (BR) going LAX-TPE/TPE-BKK for December 14, but have been told that all days up to December 13 are still relatively empty. This was for deluxe class (treated as Y in the airline's reservations).
So I won't be flying home this Christmas, after all. I was able to find a seat departing on Dec 16, but other things got in my way.
Service on BR has never been bad, but not impressive either. deluxe class is fine, 38" pitch with PTVs and lots of food (given the right departure time). what their F/C classes provide are really outdated when you compare against SQ, CX, or even CI. F/C account for no more than 30 pax on BR 744s, though.
