I was extremely happy with my flight from Amsterdam to Taipei on China Airlines. Tis was my first time on this airline and had already heard good remarks. I was upgraded from premium economy to business class and was extremely glad. The flight was on their new A350 airbus. I was booked in seat 2A in the front of the...

I flew Melbourne to Vancouver with a stop in Taipei. Such an amazing airline. The staff is very friendly and smiley. From far this is one of the best premium economy in Asian airlines with very competitive prices. The legroom is amazing, the seat is very comfortable and you can almost recline it to get a bed. The food is...

If you want something you can eat; you will have to buy an upgrade meal before your flight. Flight staff were...

I flew with China Airlines (Taiwanese) for most of my business and private trips. The services from the crews are wonderful and it's very clean all over the cabin. I just took a flight from Taipei to Bangkok 2 days ago and it was as good as what I have experienced.

We took a return trip to Taiwan from London Gatwick and found the airline to be functional. Both flights departed on time, the seats were OK. There was a variety of entertainment on the seat back screens, though the lack of a controller soon resulted in a tired arm using the touch screen. The meals were pretty standard airline food....

You hear the horror stories about this airline, however, I can't see it. Like every airline there are of course cancelations and delays, usually to no fault of the airline itself. It was a gorgeous cabin which really makes you feel comfortable. The entertainment system is average, it's nothing special but I don't feel like I'd be bored with it....

After complaining, they moved me to a flight departing Brisbane the same night and put me on a Qantas domestic flight from Melbourne to Brisbane to connect....

Their cancellation policy doesn't cover illnesses, only death. Their customer service rep told me on the phone that I would "have to wait until they pass away in order to get a refund". Who says this??? It's so inconsiderate. I am cancelling my trip because a family member could pass while I'm away - yet she tells me they can't...
