Thanks for this post, Steve.
I am flying EVA from LHR to TPE and back to AMS next week in Elite (Premium Economy) and, from what I have read, am looking forward to the experience.
I have used EVA on the HKG – TPE run in the past, along with Cathay, China Airlines and Thai and have found all to be fine. I just wonder, given the rise of Air Asia and other low-cost carriers, how long the Asian market will continue to expect a mediocre meal service on a 90 minute flight in return for fares that far exceed their European equivalents. After all, both Hong Kong and Taipei offer wonderful food experiences before departure or on arrival so why miss out on these for the sake of a “free” offering of poor quality chicken rice?
