People were allowed to be on their laptops and watch movies but we were not allowed to have our phones out to watch movies on our phone. That was not cool for those of us who did not bring laptops and downloaded all our movies and books to our phones. The plane was also freezing cold and the blankets were thin and small. No wifi that worked in Shanghai either for American service providers.

Only two check-in counters were available. The waiting time for check in was, therefore, quite long, and the time was very tight until the boarding. The seat allocation was horrible, and I was surrounded by nasty neighbors, who were chatting throughout the 10+hour flight, even after my verbal warning, not to mention the way children were taken care of. I am not blaming children making noise. I am blaming the lack of control over the parents who bring noisy toys for children and play videos loud enough to disturb the neighbor's sleep throughout the flight.

The evening meal was far better than the mystery cold cuts and drowned slaw on the daytime flight out of Hanoi. Crew were pro -- if a little terse at times. Pilot launched and landed the aircraft successfully, always a big plus in my books.

Seat was hard and somewhat uncomfortable. I wanted bottomless refills of white wine but the stewardesses had other ideas. Pours were on the skimpy side, too. Passengers were fiddling with their damned devices during takeoff and landing, and the crew shoulda laid down the law there.

Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful.

Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next.

Nothing!. My brother and I got to the Airport 45 mins before the Check In Counter Closed but we didn't make it Thedue to the fact that we had a flat tire unexpectedly so my flight was cancelled and rescheduled to January 10, 2018 and paid extra $480.00 including penalty. If the Check in Counter did not close early, I could still be able to check in on time while there was still 45 mins remaining.

Once the aircraft left the gate and started taxiing, it did the job. The crew also did their jobs. Nothing remarkable. Passengers were few, so everyone could relax better.

One day in advance, an e-mail announced that the flight would be delayed by 1 h 10 mn. Once at the airport, the delay was increased. by 35 minutes. Yet, at the airport and on the aircraft, the only explanation given was the overplayed refrain "Due to late arrival of the aircraft..." PLEASE, stop kidding us. Bad management is not the same as "late arrival". At 3 AM everybody was on board. No other arriving or departing aircraft in that CGK airport at that ungodly time. The pilot mumbled something about loading cargo. We sat an extra 50 minutes before taking off. This airplane has no screen of any kind in Economy. There were posters and a booklet describing the possibilities of entertainment. Again, who is kidding whom? Before going bankrupt, the old Philippines Air Lines used the acronym P.A.L. And everyone read: "Planes Always Late". The acronym is gone, but the delays are back, for sure. I am sorry that I did not go on a low cost flight.

When I first checked in I was pleased to have the exit row as my seat as I really enjoy the extra leg room especially on an overnight flight. Then just before we boarded I got upgraded to business class which has never happened to me before and I loved it! The staff were very nice and the flight was enjoyable, I was able to sleep very well.

The Chinese dumplings that I had for breakfast weren’t very good, they didn’t seem very fresh.
