Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."

Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."

Pros: "Like the food"
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"

Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"

Cons: "Crew was not as friendly as I'm used to."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Contact passengers promptly and suggest solution"
Cons: "I did not fly out that night due to the covid testing needed. We bought the ticket November 11 it did not say we needed to get tested before flying When we went to check in there was a long line because a lot of people that was flying out did not know also about getting tested before flying Eva employees said that this protocol started December 1st if that’s the case why didn’t they email travelers that bought tickets before December 1st And let them know that covid19 test needed. Also at check in we were inline for 2 hours just to let us know we couldn’t fly out they should have a Monitor saying “ ATTENTION PASSENGERS IF YOU DON’T HAVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN HAND YOU CANNOT A BOARD.” So that people didn’t half to stay in line for so long."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was great as well!"
Cons: "More snack bags"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "To actually catch the flight BUT it was cancelled leaving me having to buy another $AUD666 ticket DISGRACEFUL BY BUDGETAIR AND EVA!!"
Cons: "For EVA to GIVE me a REFUND KAYAK can HELP me get a refund"
Pros: ""Transfer crew' got my luggage from another airline and transferred to EVA while I rested comfortably in the nearby business lounge; walked straight on board business class without breaking stride; seats recline nicely and I slept 7 hours of 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Fish was only meal option on one leg. I realize that's probably fine for your Asian customers, but you might consider a simple pasta as a second choice. There is an extra level of service in East Asia that is much appreciated by a weary traveler (6 weeks across Russia). Please don't ever loose it"
Pros: "The crew was very warm hearted to offer small toys to my 3-yr old niece to comfort him during the flight."
Cons: "The meal was a bit disappointed for it is only sandwich with cold chicken meat... not even offer hot food option especially for kids/elderly."
Cons: "Baggage claim took forever. I waited 45 mins for mine to show up."
Cons: "I know that you have nothing to do with the reservations, but vayama flew me to bali with no return ticket. I even emailed them to confirm my reservation when I was in bali, but when I went to fly home I had no reservation and had to purchase a flight home. This is outrageous and I'm pretty sure illeagal. Now I know you had nothing to do with the reservation my original search started with you for that reason I will not be using kayak, vayama, nor eva air ever again and will suggest everyone I can to do the same. This is outrageous that i had to buy a return ticket home until i get a refund i will not stop."
Pros: "I travelled on Eva a few times a year, was used to and liked Eva."
Cons: "Arriving at JFK on time after 16 hour nonstop flight on Eva, we passengers were told the parking space was occupied and we had to wait one hour on the plane. The Eva ground crew had 10+ hours to arrange a space for the plane, as it steadily approaching its destination, and the arriving time was 10pm, hardly a busy hour of an airport. Another disappointment: as before, I took the bus provided by Eva to neighboring states. This night the arrangement was awful. Poorly organized Eva crew kept all on the roadside, with only three of the five buses next to us, we passengers waited in the open, without a schedule or clue. We were lucky for the night was warm. In a typical NY winter night, 10 Farenheit and windy, we‘d be hurt more."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, restroom is clean & tidy, good legroom beteeen seats, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Orderly boarding"
Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Very limited English movie selections for such a long flight. Could not turn Chinese subtitles off for some. Very distracting. Seats in economy (according to online comparisons) are some of the best in the industry but I felt extremely cramped and uncomfortable for the entire flight. Long haul flights should not have seats this small. Also, for health reasons, all seats should have foot rests. It shouldn't be about money, people can die from sitting like that for so long. Also, the food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing."
Cons: "Eva’s Air is cheap with drinks, whether water or wine. About a Dixie cup of each for a meal."
Pros: "Flew with EVA 16 years ago to Hanoi, Vietnam and again in 2018 to Hanoi, via Taipei. Very professional, attentive, good food, little amenities that make a difference in the overall experience of traveling. Very clean bathrooms, even after a 16-1/2 hour flight to Taipei it was still clean at the end of the trip. Food was good and plentiful, wine, spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages offered. Came around at least three times on the leg to Taipei with food and water and when I wanted more water they gladly made sure I stayed hydrated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."
Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Trip was pretty nice."
Pros: "Movie on board is good"
Cons: "Food not so nice"
Cons: "1. Not enough movie selections; same selection on both legs of the trip. 2. Bathrooms were dirty. 3. I was very disappointed that I was forced to check a carryon due to weight limits when it was under the size requirement. The weight limit doesn't make sense if it was going on the same plane anyway for free. 4. It is utterly ridiculous not to give full mileage for economy tickets anymore. Out of all the programs to cut, the loyalty program? Really? 5. Flight attendants were not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "Boarding- I booked my family flight 6 months ago and then a month before departure EVA changed our flight splitting my family up. I had to keep calling them to restore it back to original flight but was unsuccessful. This is the worst customer service and business model ever!!!!! I will have to get rid of my membership... Food- They ran out of the beef dinner I wanted so they served a substitute. It tasted awful!!!! The seafood dinner on the return trip home was also awful! They need to find a vendor that can cook western dishes well. Comfort- The seat for the economy doesn't have enough leg room esp for a 16 hours flight. Crew- can be more friendly. No one is smiling or accommodating to a small request! They are very stingy in terms of offering extra water, ginger ale or juices."
Cons: "Airline seemed to be extremely stingy with the food and beverages during my 12hr + flight. Felt like I had to fight for every little bit of extra scrap of food and explain why I needed it. It was also very limited options almost everything in the menu contained pork and if you did not pre-order a meal in advanced then it was hard for you to get anything else to eat. Airline also forces you to take out your headphones from the TV set almost 20 minutes before arriving for some odd reason. And on my flight we had a two hour delay on the tarmac."
Cons: "the boarding was a mess because there are two very close schedules in 12am"
Cons: "Air stewardess should smile more. More movies in the in flight entertainment"
Pros: "EVA Airlines was a wonderful experience from the beginning all the way to the end. From checking in to receive boarding passes, boarding, stewardess, the food, everything was wonderful. They were always pleasant and had a smile on their face. When my trip was changed by the website (vayama) to fly back to the states, EVA Airlines went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care, placed on another flight, and made it home to get to work the next day. They didn’t have to take care of me, but the did and the professionalism is amazing! I’m very pleased with this airline and will fly with them again!"
Pros: "Staff was very helpful. They went above and beyond."
Cons: "the food was a shame"
Cons: "One crew member was so rude to me, Then my husband tried to lodge a complaint at the service desk and the manager was rude to him about it. Food is gross. Crew didn’t offer enough drinks or water for the length of flight. Economy seats are tiny and cramped."
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "I like the staff."
Cons: "With my 5 year old daughter, the seats were uncomfortable since we could not lift the arm chair up for her to rest on my lap."
Pros: "TPE-SEA had a much better crew and plane that was much newer and had good entertainment sets"
Cons: "The crew for the SEA-TPE were an unhappy bunch. If you did not speak mandrian to them, they simply ignored you. They were rude and made me feel like I was a second class passenger TPE-KUL KUL-TPE had no entertainment. Just the screen to share in the front of the plane. I wish I knew in advance."
Pros: "The service is good!!!"
Pros: "Checking and in-flight staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "The flight delay which caused passengers to rush for the connecting flight to the US in less than 40 minutes. Barely made it. Unnecessary stress for fear the checked-in luggage did not make the connection."
Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"
Pros: "I was so blown away by how amazing Eva Air is ! Boarding is incredibly organized. There is so much to watch on the tv. They make sure you are properly fed and are always going around with drinks. The crew is very friendly and helpful. The bathroom is stocked with toothbrushes, sleep masks, and even a facial mist for when your skin gets dehydrated. Flights were very smooth and the captain is in constant communication. I was so very excited to fly on the Gudetama jet! I wish I could have taken a pillow!"
Cons: "Their wine pours are a little small but that is literally the only complaint that I have."
Pros: "Flight crew was very good. Service was great. Flight took off and landed safely...... most importantly."
Cons: "Hated being told at checkin that my regulation size carry on bags were slightly over weight and my only option was to go over on the floor and open them up to redistribute the weight. I was reluctantly fine with checking one of the bags, however not with being treated so carelessly and disrespectfully. I am not the kind of person that is ok with being put in that situation. As an airline I understand you need to have rules and guidelines to function, however sending me over to open my luggage on the floor in front of 1000's of other people is just humiliating!! If that is such a strict policy you really should have a space with some kind of privacy available and set up for customers to prepare to make things meet your standards. Then he changed my seat assignment for some reason and put me in an exit row..... not explaining that there is NO SPACE AT ALL for ANY carry on bags. That means no pills nearby that I needed, or headphones, magazines, iPads etc. I was really mad when I sat down and immediately asked to be moved. Luckily someone was willing to trade. Needed more to eat on a 14 hour flight also. Was really hungry."
Pros: "I missed the flight , the Manilla crew worked wonders the service was/is excellent.. will never go on another airline!! Told every one how great,, your staff is can not believe service like this exists !!"
Cons: "15 hours in a cold cattle cabin , the seats hurt after sitting sitting sitting for 15 hours my knees are killing me.... killing me. the plane is huge , smooth, stewardess are great, the 15 hours are torture -the master torturers love the long long flight times -15 hours to NYC from Taipei -- I am guessing a 747 uses a lot more fuel,, but has a recreation deck usually ,, we can walk around ,,, would gladly pay --MORE!! Some engine manufacrturer will get efficiency from those 4 engines, let the plane (747) run on 2 engines once airborne . just hoping as it is --the seats are c lose together , 15 hours in hell is not good 4 the body.. pls get or find a way- love your staff -- EVA is a great great airline!!"
Pros: "Great flight! The seats were comfortable and spacious. The crew was friendly and informative and the bathrooms were clean."
Pros: "The entertainment options were really nice. The airfare I felt was good value for the money."
Cons: "This was on the flight from Taipei to Chicago: The woman next to me had an injured foot which she rested on the tray table. She should have been seated where there was an empty seat next to her as there were seats available and it would presumably have been more comfortable. It turned out the outlet for plugging in the headphones for my seat was broken so I moved to an empty seat. I would not have wanted to look at her foot (no sock on) throughout the flight plus she was constantly fidgeting and poking me with her arm Ashe adjusted her foot while I was seated next to her. Unpleasant."
Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."
Pros: "We were very pleased with the seating for our long-haul flight. Male 6'2"/230lbs and I had plenty of room to stretch out. Entertainment options were great (plenty of free TV, movies, games in the in-headrest system) as well as reasonably priced WiFi ($21.95 USD for 24 hours, which continues across multiple flights - downside is it's one login at a time, pricey if you have multi users). Food was hit or miss. Generally there was enough of it, but leaned toward Asian-style, which is not always appetizing to western palates (ex: seafood in tomato gelatin). Western options were generally available."
Cons: "The crew never went through to pick up garbage - only collecting the food trays once after meals. Had to chase them down to get rid of cups, napkins, etc. Cabin was a bit warm for my liking. Food (see pros)."
Cons: "We could not get our seats assigned prior to check-in, and therefore had middle seats for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Looks like the KUL to TPE crews were not happy about their job or dont want to service folks. Hope EVA can retrain them."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was cold."
Pros: "Got to choose my seats next to emergency exits to have the extra leg room"
Pros: "Customer service was outstanding. After a debacle with Jetblue where they cancelled our originating flight, we booked another ticket through Delta to get to JFK. The Delta flight was delayed on the tarmac of JFK for 45 minutes, giving us only 15 minutes to go to the EVA terminal and check in. The terminal was nearly empty when we ran up to the counter. Luckily, the agents had not closed down yet. They attempted to check us in when they realized that the airline cancelled our ticket because our Jetblue originating flight was cancelled. The agents worked furiously to ensure we got on the flight, even communicating with the gate to let them know we were coming. They rebooked our tickets and got us on the plane. We are so appreciative of the EVA staff at JFK for saving our vacation."
Cons: "The food is alright. Equivalent to a TV dinner."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Everthing was great"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "crew amazing"
Cons: "flight always late as usual"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"
Pros: "I am so blessed for their upgrade to primum economy, that was incredible experience for me and my two sisters. Thanks"
Cons: "My earphones was broken, a little bed for me. Entertainment without sport news."
Pros: "My cabin bag got lost and theres no way to track it. Complete outrageous."
Cons: "Everything. Worst experience of my life"
Pros: "Again the food was excellent"
Cons: "Not enough operational toilets"
Pros: "Familarity with airline"
Cons: "Limited food options. No drinks service."
Pros: "All the flights had bad Kosher food"
Pros: "Very uneventful flights and that is a good thing. Friendly flight crew, good food served and on time."
Cons: "The aircraft from was showing some wear."
Pros: "Overal, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work, but I was able to switch seats. I could see that being a big draw back if I was not able to switch."
Pros: "I traveled this time with my wife and 8 year old twin daughters. For the long haul flight from Boston to HongKong, they let all families with children (including us) board earlier, which not all airlines do, and which was much appreciated. It wasn't as big of a deal for the HongKong to Taipei puddle jumper. Crew was very attentive, responding rapidly to calls and rebooting the entertainment system when needed. They were also quick with providing water and ramen noodles when we needed them. Seats were OK, a little short on leg room on the 777, better on the Airbus 350's. In flight entertainment options were very good for the adults, decent for the kids (they seemed to be struggling to find things to watch)."
Cons: "Food options are disappointing. The congee breakfasts have insipid, watery rice and dull flavored savories, and the sausage-and-egg breakfasts aren't much better. Dinner options were also disappointing, with so-so pepper beef and chicken that was not much past good. Snack options mid-flight were OK; they were generous with potato chips, caramel popcorn, chocolate and cookies, but the apples were mealy and there wasn't much in the way of healthy snack options."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."
Pros: "The crew was polite, caring and friendly towards passengers. I had a pleasant time during the long flight. The food options were good."
Cons: "Cup noodles were not really a good snack idea given the fact that we were sitting in a closed environment. The smell was too much for such a long flight..."
Cons: "It was a long flight, and customer service not good."
Cons: "Delayed flight and promised me in Chicago and in Flight that the plane in Hong Kong would wait. Now I am sitting inside the Airport waiting until morning to fly out. I will never fly with them again. LIARS!"
Pros: "The Stewardesses were polite"
Pros: "Great crew and spacey seating."
Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."
Pros: "Great entertainment choice"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal pre-order very dull."
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Wash rooms are limited"
Pros: "The crew are very nice. They maintain the toilet area clean and with paper supplies. I love the availability of having a hot noodle soup in between meals."
Cons: "No slippers, toothbrush & toothpaste for economy passengers. Some airlines will give this automatic due to long hours trip."
Pros: "Chicken rice"
Cons: "Mess in TPE"
Pros: "CREW AND PLANE"
Pros: "The economy seats where comfortable even with a15 hours flight , food was great and warm.Crew were very helpful"
Pros: "Great crew. Super friendly."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Cons: "Simply excellent service"
Cons: "We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again."

Pros: "Never happened. Please refund ASAP Due to COVID-19 I have tried to email"
Pros: "Comfortable premium economy seat. Nice crew."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were repetitive and pretty boring and devoid of any source of protein."
Cons: "They’re should prepare Muslem food because sometimes people bought tickets airplanes by online. By online can’t request Muslem food."
Pros: "In-flight was confortable."
Cons: "Food options aren't that familiar but ok to the taste anyway. :)"
Cons: "This was my first time travelling with China airlines and this trip was our honeymoon so we were really excited for this trip but after flying with China Air, I dont think I will fly with them again. Flight attendants were really rude, Food was ok, There’s no selection of drinks"
Pros: "Comfortable plane and a good price"
Cons: "Long queues for check in at Manila - I should have checked in online. Boarding was chaotic and people were getting stressed - maybe people could line up in seat row order to make the boarding process smoother."
Pros: "Nice space on the seat!"
Cons: "Washroom could’ve been bigger"
Pros: "Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result."
Cons: "Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride."
Pros: "Yes, and yes"
Cons: "More new movies selection"
Cons: "Good news they have a MENU for the people"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late."
Cons: "It was overall good goong there, however my trip back from Manila to Ontario was cancelled due to employee strike and i had a 12 hr lay over in Taipei and diverted my flight to LAX and have to pay almost $100 for my Uber ride. I will have to ask China Airlines to reimburse my Uber expenses."
Pros: "Services verygood"
Pros: "Got an exit row seat. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Couldn’t fault anything"
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Pros: "Quite comfortable, met my expectations and I rested. On board team were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Lounge in TPE is awful! Over crowded, noisy and a mess. I wouldn’t fly CI again just from the lounge experience."
Cons: "Airplane use to fly from Taipei to Ho Chi Minh old and dirty."
Cons: "Smell was so bad during flight"
Pros: "Living in novotel while staying in Taipei"
Cons: "stuck in Taipei"
Cons: "I had a bad flight, we had 16 hrs delay because technical breakdown. I can understand it, but everybody on the flight were really upset with china airline attitude. All passengers must sit on the plane for 3 hours before we went out of the plane, at that time the flight attendants and crew leave without an explanation, We didnt know what happnened!!!!! And during 16 hrs delay in Sanfransico Airport, we didnt have hotel for rest, we really tired without sleep. I dont know how to explain my thinking about chine airline attitiude, really upset with their way about problem solving. I just can say that i will never flight with china airline again in the future..."
Pros: "The boarding by zones is a great way to do it and they implemented it efficiently. The crew were outstanding - pleasant, smiley and courteous and made me feel welcomed. Meals were delicious."
Cons: "A bit cramped and not quite enough toilets in economy class. Always a long queue for the toilet."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
Cons: "These are some of the narrowest seats I've experienced in a full-sized airplane. Please note, I am a normal sized human."
Pros: "Warm service from check-in to destination. Counter staff arranged, without hesitation, upon my casual asking if could change to window seating and she did it with a smile (though I've web-checked in already). Service on flight was heart-warming too!"
Pros: "Prompt and customer-oriented service. Thank you to counter staff for arranging the seat change. I thought I had confirmed the seating during web-checkin but was told that there was no history of confirming the seats in the system."
Cons: "A change of snack for to and fro journey would be good."
Cons: "the food to much asian"
Pros: "The crew is always very helpful and polite go out of your way to make you comfortable I have a slight disability that they accommodate when possible"
Cons: "Who was a good trip there was nothing I did not like everything that I expected the food could have been a little bit better but it wasn't bad"
Cons: "Everything was a joke to a West standard"
Pros: "The airline crew was very professional and friendly"
Cons: "The boarding can be confusing as an economy passenger it’s a free for all when they call for your section"
Pros: "Good and friendly service, comfortable seat"
Cons: "Late, and upon arrival 5000+ people trying to get through immigration. Stupid."
Pros: "Better couch legroom than any of the US carries I have flown overseas. Newer plane and attentive flight crew. There was a decent movie and entertainment selection and the meals were reasonably good. Crew was very attentive to keeping the bathrooms clean, which on a long flight is a very nice. Checking staff in Los Angeles to insuring the comfort of a taller customer was excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays, but they where at the gate to insure I made my connection."
Pros: "Nothing, flight got cancelled"
Cons: "My experience with china airlines was the worst. I travel with surfboards. I called a head of time and got quoted a price and when I showed up they tried to charge me quadruple. They said I needed to pay 460 dollars! After arguing with them for 1 hr. They told us the flight was cancelled. Went to Singapore air& they were the best. Free for surfboards. And staff was very helpful. China air is unprofessional, and disrespectful. I will never fly with them again, nor will I recommend them to any of my friends, family, or colleagues."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
Pros: "There is no extra charge to sit in the exit row, if available"
Cons: "The food was pretty terrible"
Cons: "Originating flight in Manila to Taipei to connect to our SFO flight was cancelled late in Manila due to 'technical' issues (waiting in terminal, 4 hours past scheduled departure, which meant missing our connection to SFO), and the ensuing parade through having to stay in Manila overnight (on CA's dime, plus food), then rushed back to the airport the following morning (very short notice), then to have to wait again as CA figured out how to get a previously scheduled flight into the flight plan management systems, and obviously without a proper method to coordinate this sort of thing - ultimately all of this lack of 'control' over their situation, lead to a feeling that China Airlines does not know how to contend with interruptions, or how to make their customers feel informed so that they may be more understanding. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers). Bad image CA, bad image."
Cons: "The smaller jet does not have adjustable over head air controllers. If you sit toward the front by the emergency exit there is no air-conditioning and I was sweating for the entire trip. As you move toward the middle of the plane it seems to be much cooler. Also the video screen is very dark and small. I set the screen to the brightest setting and couldn't see half the movie. Furthermore, for some reason the crew left the bright lights on in the cabin for the entire 6-7hr trip, which made it difficult to sleep or watch the movies. My longer trip to NY with the larger and newer plane was MUCH better!"
Pros: "Friendly staff with fast pace. They can serve food within the 2 hour flight. We flew from Taipei to Hong Kong and did not expect a meal."
Cons: "China Airline changed the flight schedule and delayed 1 hour departure time. :-("
Pros: "Never rebooted entertainment after it shut off until we were ready to land and left it in boarding mode"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Hard to understand English and didn't exert enough effort to let the connecting flight wait for 5 mins. Had to extend half a day doing nothing in the airport instead."
Pros: "Online was very strict in not discounting anything. There was room in Business class and I paid full price. Most airlines have a deep discount when searched a few days before the flight. So, that might fill the vacancies in business and make me a faithful passenger. The disability assistance was very good in Bangkok and Taipei. Disability assistance was horrible(wheelchair) assistance in SFO. I had NO assistance for 90 minutes to obtain a wheelchair while .d waiting to board my departure from SFO . The same was true but worse on the return to SFO. I was let off the plane LAST and the wheelchair was not there and I waited. The wheelchair person parked me outside the gate and said NOTHING and walked away. After 15 minutes waiting for his return, I went on my own and nearly passed out waiting in the horrible immigration line. It took 120 minutes from leaving the plane to getting in my car at the airport. Ridiculoius and a violation of Americans with Disabilities ACT."
Cons: "Already stated."
Pros: "The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning. Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed."
Pros: "Staff was good & food was always on time."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight felt too congested. Especially on a 13hr flight. There was no self checking in or online check-in available so I had to wait in a long line to check-in. The most negative part about this flight is the 10hr delay in Taiwan. Sleeping in the airport for 10hrs isn't easy and fun especially after a 13hr flight. Overall, not a good experience as I hoped it would be."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "China Airlines was very understanding with my carry-on situation as I had important medical equipment to hand carry."
Cons: "Got to the gate and flight was booked, no seat, I was not on the list. Have trying to get refund by phone and e mail without response. Will never buy anything ever with kayak unless I get fully refunded."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and their response was "we don't generally track Our baggages. Our system doesn't do that.""
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
"Excelling flight, excellent landing. Good foods. My only complain that I paid for my seat and my seat was beside the restroom. Flight attendant are friendly."
Pros: "Good value over all, good on board entertainment"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "The "Forward seats" are advertised on airline documents for $20 on regional flight. MNL-SGN is definitely a regional flight, but they charged me $50 for the one seat choice. The comfort is definitely much better. I had guessed it was worth the 20 dollars, but 50 seems a rip-off."
Pros: "The crew, the meals, the on time departure and arrival . Philippine Airlines got my attention . I was in BC, and their lounge was awesome and so was the service on board. And the flight attendants as well! A five star airline, thank you !!!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process. Everyone rushed in when the gate was opened. No sequential boarding."
Pros: "Great crew. Old plane. Late arrival. Great food."
Cons: "Business class seats are old."
Pros: "Awesome experience"
Cons: "Got food poisoning from the potato salad, as did other Americans who were on our same flight"
Pros: "Superb service!"
Cons: "Flight from MNL to DPS had no entertainment system."
Cons: "Install IFE, organize the boarding process. Blankets on given on request"
Cons: "It’s a complete torture to be in transit at Manila airport.a large number of Passengers are kept hostage in a small room with a capacity of about 40 persons. Passport and boarding passes are taken away by the airline ground staff. Good airline but worst staff at airport. A lot to be said. TORTURE"
Pros: "Despite a shortage of Flight Attendants on the Flight the ones that were working did an AWESOME Job serving the Passengers ."
Cons: "For the sake of the Flight Attendants more Of them to help."
Cons: "the business class seats were not comfortable, badly designed. also it seems some staff (i think manager) are just sitting around, only one young guy was really doing all the work."
Cons: "seat not comfortable, tray table hard to pull out, flight delayed 2 hours, flight crew didnt have immigration card (therefore had to wait in immigration line additional 25 min)"
Pros: "Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse."
Cons: "Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists."
Pros: "Always great service on pal flights"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Pros: "Truly friendly, service minded and happy cabin crew."
Cons: "A bit messy for the boarding but partly as unruly passengers"
Pros: "Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive"
Pros: "Yes PAL FA are always excellent and the Pilot Captain n Co Pilot really made us all safe."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."
Cons: "Missed the connection and had to pay to rebook"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in."
Cons: "I am about 6 feet tall and the leg room was terrible. I was thankful that the person in front of me did not recline, other side their head would have been in my face."
Pros: "Though we are 50 mins late in departure we were given announcement early"
Cons: "The food we had ( fish and rice) for the flight was enough in quntity but lack a good taste."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew was really good"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. Took over an hour and a half to just board the plane. Could have been done better. Left almost 50 minutes late because of boarding"
Cons: "Add TV"
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Pros: "Nice crew. Delicious food"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing."
Cons: "They choose to serve beef curry on a flight from a Indian minority country. Surprise, 20 of us were stuck with it because that is all that was left... All that is left is beef, is that ok? Like we have a choice. Late as always too."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Direct flight to Los Angeles is convenient. Overall the flight crew was hospitable. The food was enjoyable and they keep restrooms clean"
Cons: "Terminal 2 at the Manila International Airport is aweful. The redundancy of screening at the gate is laughable. The terminal is too warm and there are not nearly enough seating for everyone at every gate I viewed. This experience alone may influence future use of Philippine Airlines. The flight attendant who served my section never smiled. I was suprised she is entrusted with serving passengers."
Pros: "flight, service --great"
Cons: "check in --vry problematic."
Cons: "flight canceled"
Cons: "Check in at Kuala was a chaos. The agents were at a lost not knowing how to handle the family in front of me. It took them more than 30 minutes to handle just one family. I think there must be something wrong with the booking system. It took me 45 minutes to complete my check in."
Pros: "The food was better."
Cons: "The flight got delay for 1 hour."
Cons: "They make it hard to upgrade your seat in route. No on board entertainment."
Cons: "Flight delayed for about 2 hours"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "There was only entertainment on your phone or iPad"
Pros: "flight update via email"
Cons: "late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly"
Pros: "Good service on the flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Manila airport is not well maintained - poor bathroom condition in the international terminal."
Pros: "got lucky and no one sat next to me. Boarding was fast"
Cons: "No Entertainment module, have to pay for Wifi"
Pros: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."
