it delayed so the transfer flight was rush.
Food in premium economy was terrible The change of ticket at taipei transfer area due to late plane arrival was extremely long The lounge in taipei is below acceptable . I went to starbucks for food and seating.
Pros: "no delay"
Cons: "seat are really getting smaller"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight was on time. Meals were good. Will be flying with EVA again"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "They were helpful"
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: "Awesome crew and great service"
Cons: "can maybe be a little bit less strict on luggage weight"
Cons: "Food needs to be improved. Other than that excellent travel experience."
Cons: "Some way to soften the sleeping experience. Memory foam?"
Pros: "EVA isn't a discount airline. Being the National Airline of Taiwan and a member of the STAR alliance, you will pay a premium price. I was originally being put in a row right behind the bulkhead with no individual monitor and a seat that was extremely cramped because of the tray table. I knew that I would be able to hang for a 13 hour flight and fortunately, the flight attendant was able to move my wife and I."
Cons: "Only one current movie available. Food was bland and not very appetizing."
Cons: "Food was little disappointing this trip..."
Cons: "Incredibly slow wifi"
Pros: "Leg space was adequate---not cramped. Friendly crew members."
Cons: "Would have liked more choices for movies/TV."
Cons: "Awesome and excellent50"
Pros: "EVA graciously accept a name correction to my ticket where most of my name was correct but the first name wasnt. A big help. Unlike travelling in and out of China. So, i appreciated this help. Flying out at 2 am and arriving Taipei at 5 am was a good time choice too. Service on board was good. Lots of refreshments served. Nice plates used for meals in economy."
Pros: "I love that the crew maintains the bathrooms well. To me, EVA has the cleanest bathrooms of all the Asian and North American airlines I have flown to Asia. Crew is courteous and pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food seems to have gone downhill. I miss the special crackers with seaweed. The hot meal was like North American airline meals - blecchh. Very disappointing."
Pros: "I enjoy the friendly flight attendants and the overall flight experience. I love the fact they leave at 1am and arrive in Manila around noon. I always tell my friends to fly EVA."
Pros: "Another passenger took my back pack so I had to wait until the person turned it in. However, the EVA people were very helpful in getting my bag to me."
Cons: "There could be more movies and more American music in the entertainment package. The flight was overbooked by 5 passengers, so I could not get a boarding pass on the first part of my trip, from Bangkok to Taipei. Fortunately they had a boarding pass waiting for me when I got to Taipei."
Cons: "good service as expected."
Pros: "We sat in the emergency row and had endless legroom. The blankets and pillows were good quality. Food was great! Crew was very attentive. Bathrooms were amazingly clean."
Cons: "We didn’t know how to access the entertainment."
Cons: "it always seems odd that they don't start loading the back of the plane first, perhaps i'm wrong but it seems logic thus you would not have a huge line of people standing in the aisle putting away stuff while you are mking yur way to the back"
Pros: "very clean and tidy washroom. smiles on attendant's face."
Cons: "30 minutes delayed in boarding, 35 minutes late in arrival."
Pros: "Cabin crew works quickly; nobody plodding around."
Cons: "Only thing I would have liked was some pepper with my meals."
Pros: "Service was wonderful"
Cons: "Service could be better. One flight attendant was sick but still working."
Pros: "Overall experience was very good. Check in was long but clerks were very good."
Cons: "I did not like that they moved my cabin bag without telling me. Attendant realized afterwards and apologized."
Pros: "the management of EVA is excellent....from reservation to check in...in flight service is also excellent....seats not as comfortable as China Airlines....and the entertainment choices were disappointing....food taste and presentation was excellent....it is a very good airline...."
Cons: "This flight wasn't over booked so I was able to rest better with extra leg too."
Pros: "High quality entertainment, service. And food."
Cons: "The fact that they are very far away from any terminal at LAX, mean did you checked in a bag, you will have to wait a long time. I waited 1 hr for my bag to come out to the baggage carasel"
Pros: "Excellent all around. AFAIK no other airlines offers the 5 course meal Eva does in business. The seats are spacious reverse herringbones. Crew is friendly, and service efficient. Anyone coming from a Western carrier would be impressed."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is a bit weak. Doesn’t bother me as I bring my own entertainment, but may bother some."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "the staff...very professional and warm...great amenities...food was excellent..very comfortable plane"
Cons: "had to inquire about cocktail service"
Pros: "The movie options were good."
Cons: "The annocments were hard to hear and understand"
Pros: "The staff are nice..."
Cons: "Pork was the only option in that flight."
Pros: "Liked the way they do their boarding Comfortable flight"
Pros: "Food was actually OK and the alcohol selection was good."
Cons: "I was in the last row aisle seat 73H. Prior to take off I requested to move to the opposite side 73 A and B because they were empty. I had a passenger on the window side and this particular FA said said OK, but she said to do it after the flight takes off. Later I took my things and this time another FA rudely said I cannot move because the empty seats were required for FA's to rest on this 14 hr flight. Fair enough. But not once did they sit at those empty seats at all. When I had to continually get up to allow my window passenger who frequently uses the toilet. Why lie?"
Cons: "Space beneath seat in front, where you put a backpack and such, was very, very small - smaller than other airlines"
Pros: "The flight attendants were on point and very well trained. Decent legroom in Economy class and decent inflight entertainment. Flight on tune and boarding was seamless. Will fly EVA air again."
Cons: "Food was decent but could have been better. Entertainment was ok but could have used more choices. Not much too gripe about though."
Pros: "Overall, it was pleasant. I got the service and comfort for the price I paid for."
Pros: "Flight attendant Elvis was Great! Very friendly and attentive. This was my 1st time trying EVA. There will be more!"
Cons: "Seats better than most but could be a bit wider. A15 hour flight could use more beverage service."
Pros: "The whole experience was nice. The flight was very well attended."
Cons: "Space in our section. Everything"
Pros: "Comfortable Elite Economy Seats. Most of the air stewardess was polite with smiles"
Cons: "Not all but some lack of big smiles or no smile at all particularly when press button for services. Also, slower response compared to SQ where all air stewardess was prompt with great smiles. Main course was somehow better in quality for example beef chunk rather than thin slices. Overall, very comfortable ride."
Pros: "easy to check in. like kayak service. Highly recommend .."
Problems at check-in REALLY upset me! I repeatedly checked the New Zealand.gov web site to ensure I adhered to all their requirements: had all Covid vaccinations and boosters, and completed their NZ Declaration. NO VISA WAS EVER REQUIRED for USA citizens. NZ lifted all Covid requirements on 9/13 and for the NZ Declaration on 10/22. But when I checked in for my flight, I was informed I needed a VISA! At no time was I notified of this by the NZ government, Air New Zealand, or Kayak. And I was not the only one. Had it not been for two other passengers helping me file for the Visa online, I would not have been able to board my flight. As for the flight, attendants were friendly. Organic food was pretty good. Seats were very uncomfortable, despite my paying an extra $50 for more leg room, and my back and legs have been aching for several days.
Pros: "I would have liked for them to refund my ticket even though I asked them to. They ignored my request and I didn't get to go on to the plane but I still paid for it."
Cons: "A refunded plane ticket or voucher would have been better."
Pros: "Crew all did a good job"
Cons: "Nothing - it was good!"
Pros: "Turboprop, smaller plane, boarding stairs - always fun."
Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "One traveler was hit by car and injured prior to the trip. Could not get a refund from the airline."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Pros: "Great and attentive crew. Solid in-flight entertainment. Pilots got us to destination 20 mins early!"
Cons: "1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, food was excellent and everything in worked well. Crew was very helpful and got you anything you needed."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"
Pros: "Everything. A modern comfortable plane. It's embarrassing for airlines from America because they pale in comparison. I would gladly pay $100 more and fly in style IN COACH! Can't wait for the return flight."
Cons: "I am vegetarian so should request veg option meals"
Pros: "Great crew.and service."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "Larding is shambullick from LAX! Needs improving your system . No one to tell you early which line and existing signs for economy and Premium do not stand out .. staff need to be on the ground sooner letting people know and asking them which seats to prevent most people being in the wrong queue"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Cons: "We had to take a connecting flight from Paris and British Airlines were very inconsistent with their hand carry policy which gave me so much stress."
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."
Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"
Pros: "The staff was incredible. Additionally I loved all the entertainment options."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight slightly due to the fact that we weren't able to connect our baggage to British Airways and that the flight came in late."

Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "The service very poor"
Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"
Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "Crew was excellent; good and friendly service. On time."
Cons: "15 minute walk from terminal to gate without any pre-warning. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Staff were kind and thoughtful with younger passengers."
Pros: "Service and attitude superb"
Cons: "comfort and seats. On the flight back, although crowded, it would have been nice to have the assistance that 3 large guys could have used to find a seat. Spent the entire flight sweating between two large gentlemen. Luckily, they were polite and we all managed."
Pros: "Tons of free movies."
Cons: "As a vegan I didnt think the food was great. But they did have food for me to eat so that was nice."

Cons: "coming back to work"
Pros: "Great entertainment"

Cons: "I will nvr take this airline.. racist"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was non-eventful."
Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."
Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "Traveled as a family of 6 but our special meal requests--confirmed by phone prior to outbound journey--were not available, making the long journey very difficult. They crew tried to help and said they would follow up."
Pros: "Great seats in Premium Economy, although not all the functions seemed to be working! Crew were very helpful but the one in my area was very slow with the main meal - had to wait 90mins after we took off before I got my food Breakfast was very nice"
Cons: "Great seats in Premium Economy, although not all the functions seemed to be working! Crew were very helpful but the one in my area was very slow with the main meal - had to wait 90mins after we took off before I got my food"
Pros: "Liked just about everything. Paid extra for upgraded Economy seats but it was worth it. Seats 35 A & B. Flight both ways very smooth and flight crew very accommodating. Have already recommended New Zealand Air to all my friends."
Pros: "Seats, service"
Cons: "Wait and confusion. I n auckland"
Pros: "The Air Canada flight to LA was fine. It was the second leg of the trip that wasn't all that good."
Cons: "The very long stop over in LA. The airport is not great."
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."
Cons: "Better room in leg and width. Hotter food and tastier."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food Crew"
Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"

Pros: "On time. Good service"
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."
Pros: "very friendly staff, meals were very good, much to choice in the inflight movies games, etc."

Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."
Pros: "Short stop over"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it"."
Pros: "Very good service. Professional and friendly"
Pros: "Staff onboard were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific lounge (The Peir) didn't broadcast boarding announcements so we nearly missed it."
Pros: "- Great entertainment lineup -Attentive staff -Delicious meals"
Cons: "-Lack of aisle space in economy; hard to walk up and down -Seats reclined a bit too far back for the comfort of the person sitting behind..."
Pros: "Smooth flight , crew members were good"
Cons: "Food and chair space The head set was in a sealed bag , when I opened it I found 2 white hair inside !!! The blanket was soiled with chocolate in a sealed bag !! Delayed flight for an hour without timely announcement"
Pros: "Flight from Toronto to Hong Kong was late departing due to a snow storm. Most on the flight missed connections. Cathay staff were waiting on the jetway with plans for everyone that missed their connection to Sydney. Just impeccable organisation and service."
Pros: "Everything thing worked out well except for the food for my wife. Sitting all the way in the back wasn't that bad because no one was behind us and we could fully recline."
Cons: "Kayak or Cathay provided no options to select meal preference while checking in online more than 24hrs before departure."
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."
Pros: "One of the better airlines for a reason, great overall"
Pros: "On time Good service Nice crew"
Pros: "מסך וסרטים ברמה טובה, המטוס עצמו חדש ובאיכות טובה. מרחק קטן בין הכיסאות מרגישים ברכיים בגב."
Cons: "היינו המומים - רגע לפני העלייה למטוס, בשרוול עצמו, לקחו את הנוסעים הצידה ועשו להם בדיקה גופנית ידנית. הכוונה מישושים מלאים בכל חלקי הדוף האינטימיים, ולפני שאר הנוסעים. החברה שלי היתה בשוק. הרי עברנו שיקוף בכניסה לטרמינל. ואין לי מושג אם זה בגלל שאנו ישראליים, אבל זה היה וולגרי ופולשני. הימנעו מטיסה עם החברה הזו."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was very good so also the service . Food was OK ; could be better within the cost parameters ."
Cons: "There wasn't enough choice of entertainment . The snacks offered were good but the refill of exhausted items was not there . Possibly this could be improved ."
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Pros: "Pilots were great! Flight staff didn't seem to care much. Didn't hand out water or juice. When asking for it it seemed like a problem. Wasn't impressed."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Pros: "Business class service was the best I've ever experienced from any carrier."
Cons: "Food pretty bad on the 8am flight in economy."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Cons: "I was at the window seat. They weren't really paying attention to me when they bring water or collect the trash."
Pros: "When you see a big plane you always wonder how long it will take but Cathay Pacific was very efficient during the boarding and deplaning. It was a very long flight and they kept everybody happy with a smile. Extremely accommodating."
Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."
Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Toronto for two hours and we sat on the Tarmac with no explation. Insufficient food for a 15 hour flight with no snacks offered except for two minute noodles in a cup which they ran out of. Catered mostly for Chinese passengers. Entertainment was very poor too, only a small number of English movies with the majority of entertainment in Chinese. Crew were rude and dismissive. Overall a great disappointment."
The flight attendants were great. Food was pretty good and for dinner there were 3 choices Breakfast 2 choices.
Everything was great. Ease of boarding, smooth flight. No lost luggage. All good.
I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "The staff were polite and they took care of us well."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled the first night and then was also cancelled the next night I just happened to have been moved to an earlier flight so I didn't get stuck there the second day."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."

Pros: "Attentive staffs, shortest time on flight connection."
Cons: "My seat couldn't recline"
Pros: "Mechanics of aircraft. Boarding."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Not enough staff for such a large plane. Food was not good and took a long time to get our first meal. Could not understand English announcements because she was not very fluent. Probably would not fly China air again."

Pros: "China airlines service is very good"

Cons: "The food could have been more tasty and warm."
Cons: "The food from Canada was very Canadian, but on the way back way more traditional chinese"
Cons: "Some of the courses in the dinner were excellent like the soup and appetizer. Other items were off, like the entree. Wine selection could improve."
Cons: "There was no provision for vegetarian food in the flight"
Pros: "The staff was friendly for a very late and very long flight"
Cons: "Almost 70% of the plain was stuffed into economy seating while 60% of the economy plus was empty and much more spacious. I feel like optional upgrades should be announced when this is the case, especially for a 16 hour flight"
Cons: "No seat number on the ticket. Wrong gate number. Food has hairs in it. I have back pain problem...was asking for the outside seating so I can stand up one in a while but got Negative answer for both ways....don’t think to book with you guys and China Airlines again.....very painful experience."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was excellent. Thr crew are friendly and luxurious plane comforts make it worth the trip paid for."

Cons: "Rather cramped quarters for such a long flight."
Pros: "The service from the beginning to the destination was great. I found the staff very professional"
Cons: "I got sick on this flight, and the concern expressed by the crew was about 0. Also, they don't understand the meaning of ice water. Water, with lots of ice! Serving an American destination, they should know how much ice Americans like in drinks. Normally not a big deal, but when you really need to cool down to keep from barfing, it is important."
Pros: "I like the boarding because they went by zone. I also like the food and drink that was provided."
Cons: "I didn't like the restroom it was too small to go number 2 in."
Pros: "Amazing seats, Blue Label in business from Taipei -> SFO. Very courteous staff."
Pros: "Even with some delay taking off, we were only a few minutes late at LAX. Overall flight was nice and uneventful."
Cons: "Baggage is not First In First Out. Although I was probably one of the first few passengers coming out of immigration, my bags came in last. It took about 45 mins to 1 hrs after immigration to get my bags. Was it because they were first loaded in Taipei, since our connection form Manila arrived 4 hrs before the LAX flight?"

Cons: "Dis not get my sheets or pillow for the reclining seat. Movies are limited"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and accommodating and professionals."

Pros: "Foods and services were excellent"
Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "seats are not as comfortable, food was meh. I get that coach Isn't supposed to be the best, but come on at least make the seats with better support."

Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Pros: "My very first time flying china airlines and loved everything about it... food, service, comfort, etc."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "Flight was delayed which made me lose my connecting flight to austin. At the counter I was told that they had rescheduled but that I was late. I was late because customs took long and the flight from Taipei was 30 minutes late. So it's not like I was wasting time. I did not appreciate that the blame was placed on me in the way the counter people communicated with me. I noticed that the counter woman, and the supervisor did not speak to me at all. Not even to say "let me find out" or "sorry for the inconvenience" but both did speak to other customers that were of Asian Descent. They communicated both in English and Chinese. The young woman that booked the flight for me (different one from counter woman) was decent and attentive. Sherry who was the third woman I dealt with when I needed to sort the baggage issue was very attentive even explaining to the supervisor why It was the second time I was back at their offices. She went out of her way to make sure I saw my bags delivered to the UA luggage. But again, I am very disappointed and can't help to notice that other passengers received basic cordial treatment when I was blatantly ignored."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, staff was friendly. Seats were okay, fairly spacious. It was nice that they gave everyone both a blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty and the selection was terrible. I was given the same pasta for two meals (first time I had a choice, second time only pasta again). Even the same type of pasta but the second time there was some chicken in it too. It was gross."
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS SMOOTH AND QUICK"
Cons: "ONLY WATER TO DRINK WITH THE FOOD NO ORANGEJUICE APPLE JUICE OR COKE OR 7 UP"
Pros: "Regular water and juice served throughout entire flight was much appreciated. Lots of movie options for those who cannot sleep."
Cons: "Seats so close together, man behind me kicking my seat in his sleep for 12 hours. No snacks in between meals. Hindu meal should be vegetarian but had meat. My request on both round trip flights for a window or aisle were not honored."
Pros: "The interior was clean and spacious. Overall pretty comfortable flight. About average in-flight entertainment system."
Cons: "They gave me a tray without the main entree on it for breakfast and said they'd come back. Gave everyone in front of and behind me their food as far as I could tell. Then they never came back. I wasn't particularly hungry and neither was my girlfriend who was next to me, so we split her food, but still, pretty weak."
Pros: "Crew was impressive. Very efficient with exceptional customer service and appearance."
Cons: "Food was awful. Flight was 1hr late"
Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "We had a free movie on a 3.5 hour flight but not on the 6 and 9 hour flights. It's time to step it up for long haul flights!"
Pros: "Ground crew facilitated the flow of the very long line, making sure it's moving along. The flight crew were helpful in finding a spot for your carry on and were always there when I needed assistance. Food was good but the Taipei-Manila flight, there was only one choice of meal."
Pros: "Very nice short trip."
Cons: "Overall excellent service"
Pros: "flight was only 2.5 hours long, but very good service for such a short flight flight attendant attention to detail, and kindness were much appreciated. multi lingual was also impressive alcoholic drink selection very good seats quite comfortable"
Cons: "entertainment non-existent for business class, or for my row (row 1). flight only 2.5 hours so no big deal, but entertainment on longer flight would have been a problem (no personal screen) suggest something like a competitor airline does (american company name, begins with "U"). use on-board wi-fi and we stream in entertainment onto our personal devices...."
Pros: "Had a nice flight back from Taipei to JFK on China Airlines in premium economy. Compared to economy, I was quite happy with the comfortable far-reclining seats and more than enough leg room. My one complaint is food. I'm a vegetarian and the veg options were awful...simply not acceptable. And giving passengers the full can of soda/beverage would be nice. Most adults drink more than a shot glass worth of soda or juice. Or at least fill the cup a bit more."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and quick despite the size of the plan."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and not much leg room."
Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
