Having not had any dealings with China Airlines previously I was slightly apprehensive as what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the airline and my experience. The seats in economy are what you would expect. The flight attendants were attentive and pleasant, offering beverages and snacks on request between meals. In flight entrainment was varied, with a range of...

Our return trip from SYD to Frankfurt in PE in July/August prompted us to use the same airline and seat class to Taiwan and Japan in 2019. New aircraft and excellent in cabin service. Baggage transfer with Lufthansa from Nice was seamless Enjoying spending the kids inheritance in comfort!

And I was blown away. The fly great new planes. The A350 out of Sydney is the quietest plane I've ever been on. The seats are...

Cheapest round trip flight from Manila to LAX. Just common sense, you get what you pay for. For me, flight was smooth, seats are comfortable, food is OK, and average baggage allowance. Compare before you complain XD

Purchasing ticket and modifying booking options for seat selection and special meal was easy enough. At the airport during check-in, was refused by counter staff because my first and last names registered in the system where switched from what it says on my passport. Basically China Airlines treats 'surname' and 'last name' as the same, which is fine for Chinese...

This is the first time for me to Taipei City. To Taipei it is only 3 airline which have the direct flight sheduled. One of them is China air with 2X direct flight Jakarta to Taipei. So the price is worthy for your trip.

The China Airline has quite new one of Airbus A350-900, for economy class the seat is quite good space. The price is worthy for your trip. We enjoy the flight with CI 761. The flight always on scheduled time.

My organization had purchased my flight from Vienna to Manila, via China Airlines. I sat in an emergency exit seat with a space in between passengers. I read China airlines was actually good, so I decided to give them a chance (usually fly Austrian, Air Canada, etc). First off, the upgrade fee from economy to premium economy was insane compared...
