Hello Kitty in Taipei Taoyuan Airport
Taipei Airport is the home airport of Hello Kitty with EVA Air´s wonderful Hello Kitty jets operating from here. I am a big fan and since my only flight with them was in 2015 from Taipei to Fukuoka, I decided to visit the Hello Kitty section once again for some reminiscing 😉 I visited the Hello Kitty Gate which is Gate C3 as well as the Sanrio Shop beside the gate. Below are some photos.
EVA Air The Infinity Lounge
The Club, The Star and The Infinity. I did not have access to The Garden as it is reserved to the top tier members of EVA Air´s frequent flyer program.
Boarding, Gate C7
Aircraft, Boeing 787-9
The Boeing 787-9 of EVA Air consists of 26 seats in business class in a 1-2-1 configuration. On this flight to Bangkok, all seats were occupied.
Business Class Cabin (Royal Laurel Class)
At 10:16pm, the captain came on the PA to welcome us onboard and to inform us that we would be ready for departure in 15 minutes, adding our flight time of 3 hours and 15 minutes.
Moments later, the flight attendant taking care of my aisle came to present the menu card and wine list and a little later, my apple juice was served with a cold towel and a tissue.
At 10:35pm, the flight attendants started taking meal orders. The FA who came to me confirmed my pre-ordered meal on the internet. I asked for a cranberry juice to be served with the nuts, and a glass of sparkling water to go with my dinner.

Moments after the seatbelt sign was turned off, the Cabin Manager came to distribute Thailand immigration forms. She knew I was flying all the way to Vienna so she just welcomed me onboard.
flight from Cebu to Taipei a lot more.
Around 12:21am Bangkok time, the captain was back on the PA to inform us that we would be arriving in Bangkok at 1am. Twenty minutes before landing, an announcement was made that all non-Thai residents flying all the way to Vienna should disembark, as per the law.
We landed in Bangkok at 12:59am and reached our gate E5 seven minutes later.
It is always a joy flying with EVA Air in business class. I had an enjoyable flight from Cebu and this one was just as wonderful. The flight attendants were friendly and always addressed me by my name. Refill of bread and drinks were also automatic. As usual, the meal on board was fantastic and I appreciate the fact that they allow their passengers to pre-order their meals. Lastly, the seat was fully flat and comfortable. I really had an enjoyable flight and I can understand why the cabin was full on this flight 😉 I really hope to fly again with EVA Air soon.
