We were disappointed. The plane was the same as used by BA from LOndon to Shanghai, but the interior seemed much less smart and tidy. Staff English was adequate but not good and service was not impressive. We would prefer not to use them again

China Airline's lounge at Taipei Taoyuan airport impressed me because of its Taiwan Beef noodle. These bowl of made-to-order noodle is addictively tasty.

We had used a CitsLinc...for a Chamber of Commerce trip to China. So, of course, we had the worst seats on the flight over--according to SeatBuddy. I had back row window with a huge metal thing under my feet and no room for my backpack. Think a lot of the disappointment was about expectations from Asian airlines in general. Have...

She raised her voice & gave me misleading information. She is very rude, not willing to help. Very disappointed and she is giving bad example to the front desk staffs. Both me and my...

With the super comfortable A350-900 planes, China Airlines is my first choice when going in this direction. The planes, crew, and amenities make the journey very enjoyable. The one thing I've noticed though, is that after having taken this flight several times, it almost never arrives on time (for me, at least). It either left late, or arrived late for...

For Asian trips, China Airlines is a great way to fly with. On-time schedules, friendly and professional cabin crew. Food and Beverages services, also in short flight are great. I will fly again with this SkyTeam member.

Took round trip between TPE and BKK with China Airline. Airplane is new with chic design. Foods is OK but toilet is the worst I ever saw so far. Shall be the poor design with Airbus and poor service from the crew, either way. Fortunately, less than 4 hours. This is not a preferred airline for me.
