Flying Singapore to Taiwan with Chinese Airlines. For Bussines class passengers they give access to Dnata lounge in Changi airport. Free Wi-Fi internet, seats with small tables, sockets for phone chargers, help-yourself snacks and drink bar. There is no lineup at check in for bussiness class. In the airplane: - more room for legs - better menu - nice noise...

China Airlines new A350-900 planes have in my view the classiest finish of any carrier and the seats are excellent as set out in herringbone fashion which as with other carriers I find superior to in online seats. IFE fine but not quite as a good in content as some. Food is variable, the fish was superb, other dishes less...

We flew China Airlines (CI), two of us with infant daughter, from Kuala Lumpur to San Francisco, via Taipei and back. Both trips featured a 2 1/2 hour layover at Taipei airport, probably one of the world's most underrated airports. The trip was uneventful, the check-in was smooth, although we did not get our bassinets for one of the long...

Concerning the service onboard I have to say, that the flight attendants were friendly, but not more. They were very stingy when ordering something to drink. During the flight, they...

This will not be my first choice for flying. We booked this for timing for our cruise. It wasn't that it was bad, but it was not great. We flew at 2 AM and apparently eating at 3-3:30 AM is what we should be doing. It would be fabulous if the airline would consider the time of flight when setting...

Somehow it delayed for about one hour before it took off for fuel refilling problem. After onboard, everything would just be fine. They offered the toothbrush and shaver which might be very practical for those transfer travelers. Chinese meals are great but perhaps are not suitable for Muslims. Toilets are clean during the flight. Lots of passengers are seniors and...

Excellent service, good food and drinks, fairly comfortable seat but I would have like a little more leg room when my seat back was reclined. I think it was worth the upgrade on this 10 hour flight.
