Thanks for coming along! My Photobucket won't allow any text between the photos, so here's a brief synopsis:
I tried to make the pics tell the story by creating some sort of chronological order - happy to answer any Qs!
EVA was a great way to fly from LAX
and onwards to BKK
(a later TR
!). The 747-400 was in immaculate condition and we scored seats on the upper deck where the Y-pitch is 35-36".
Cabin crew were really excellent on this flight, despite some reports of 'unfriendly' and 'cold' service, we really found them to be all smiles and very attentive.
The meals were good - I skipped the much-vaunted Chinese rice soup on this sector, and that turned out to be a good decision, as I had it on the way back and it was the most awful Congee I have ever had!
AVOD was really good and easy to use - either cursor-controlled or touchscreen, although the selection was a tad weak.
My only complaint was that there is no bar service prior to dinner, but I think that had more to do with the time of day (take-off was at 02:15am) than anything else.
was extremely easy to transfer in, and all the cabin announcements were given in Mandarin, English and Vietnamese - there was a lot of transfer traffic on to SGN
This is part of a much longer trip which went on to BKK
, but those will be posted in a separate report...
Thanks for reading - apologies for the lack of banter - comments welcome!
