When, in Manila, I was forced to check-in that piece of luggage, I forgot to move my medication into my backpack which I carried with me on board. In Taipei, I asked the ground crew to retrieve my medication from my check-in carry-on. The team worked diligently and made sure that my medication was handed to me as I was one boarding the plane with the last few. I was delighted by the level of service and the fact that I was able to take my medication before the flight took off. What a difference in attitude between the Manila and Taipei ground crews. Thank you Taipei ground crew!"

Pros: "Though the boarding process for this flight had the passengers take a shuttle to board the plane, I actually preferred this, because it seemed that the process was more efficient.

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less leg room than other airlines, food is not as good as other airlines. If only the seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Very nice flight crew"
Cons: "Food didn't agree with me"
Pros: "If you're seated on a row with collapsible monitor that stows like a tray as opposed to a monitor on the back of the seat in front of you, then you must end your entertainment or whatever movie you're watching earlier as the plane descends. The other monitors are played right up until the plane comes to a complete stop."

Cons: "DelaysDid not appreciate the Delayson the flights.........."

Pros: "Friendly staffs, decent leg room, boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "A little limited on movie selections & food was ok"
Pros: "I particularly appreciated having so many employees assist those passengers (including me!) who needed to connect in Tapei with the flight to Bangkok. Our flight arrived a bit later than scheduled, and I was concerned that I would miss the connection to Bangkok - but our connecting flight was held for us, and several employees were available to direct us to the correct gate for boarding. thank you all!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The smaller jet does not have adjustable over head air controllers. If you sit toward the front by the emergency exit there is no air-conditioning and I was sweating for the entire trip. As you move toward the middle of the plane it seems to be much cooler. Also the video screen is very dark and small. I set the screen to the brightest setting and couldn't see half the movie. Furthermore, for some reason the crew left the bright lights on in the cabin for the entire 6-7hr trip, which made it difficult to sleep or watch the movies. My longer trip to NY with the larger and newer plane was MUCH better!"
Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Cons: "The flight was delay and this the frist time I ever been delayed in my flights experience."
Pros: "My seat was upgraded the first class so I received the first class service. It was excellent service and the flight was comfortable. Thank you for the great service."

Pros: "Very good service.on a scale 1 to 10,I give 10 point. Keep up the good job. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew and staff were all very responsive and proactive in providing assistance, seed genuinely eager to help. Boarding was fine, and a representative of the airline took initiative to form a preliminary queue at the terminal departure counter despite the airline not having an all-day dedicated counter."
Cons: "While its 4-seat layout was better than some anes' 5 seats in the middle column, the seating was, of course, cramped, and I did not have enough space under the seat in front of me to stow my backpack. I also wish Kayak had included easy means to select seats and special meal options. Apparently to do so requires visiting the airline's own webpage."
Cons: "The cost public transportation made miss the flight and i had to buy a new ticket and i was not helped at All when i called the company"
Pros: "It was good. I would flight China airlines in the future."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."

Cons: "very good experience over all"
