EVA Air’s NEW 787 Business Class Seat — WOW!!

Greetings from Taipei! Last Saturday, I flew to Hong Kong and right back onboard EVA Air’s brand new 787. EVA hasn’t been flying their 787 for long, and I was actually flying them on the third day they operated the plane. While I was seated in economy, I had the chance to check out EVA’s brand new business class product.

I booked these flights so I could check out the new products onboard EVA’s newest flagship plane, and I’m proud to say that I found the new seats to be both stunning and beautifully designed.

What is the brand new business class onboard EVA Air’s 787 like? Watch the video and read below to find out!

My Experience Contacting Three Airlines: What’s The Best Way?

Before a flight, there are many issues that may arise which require you to contact the airline – those being special meals, seat selection, special requests or accommodations, or just the simplest of things you have to know, such as whether baggage can be checked to your final destination. Since each airline can be contacted in a multitude of ways, knowing the best method can save you tons of time and energy. For example, you can avoid wasting hours on the phone waiting for an agent that won’t help you at the end of the day.

It’s worth noting that I wrote this post based on my extensive experience contacting various agents of the respective airlines on a variety of occasions over the course of many months. You may have a different experience contacting these airlines.

What is the best way to contact the airline for information and/or help on Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, and Singapore Airlines?

What Is EVA Air’s 10-Abreast 777 Economy Like? Is 10-Abreast 777 Economy Worth Avoiding On A Longhaul Flight?

Recently, I had the opportunity to fly EVA Air’s new 10-abreast economy class on their 777 from Singapore to Taipei. While EVA Air’s old 777s were configured in a comfortable 3-3-3 configuration, their newest 777s are equipped with an extra-dense 3-4-3 economy class layout. The day before my outbound flight, I wrote a post comparing the two cabins, as well as explaining my (very low) expectations.

With 10-abreast 777 economy becoming increasingly common (Cathay Pacific is planning to introduce it very soon), it’s time to answer the ultimate question – is 10-abreast economy class on a 777 worth going out of your way to avoid on a long haul flight?

As of yesterday, Cathay Pacific has announced the Airbus A350-1000’s initial routes. The A350-1000 is a stretched version of its younger sibling, the A350-900.  I wrote about the A350 a few weeks ago,  when Cathay Pacific revealed the seat map & cabin configuration for the aircraft.
