Pros: We have now been on both TAIWAN based carriers in the past six months. CI aircraft interiors were more visually appealing- I remember BR being too dark...

Cons: The temperature fluctuations of the aircraft. This is really for all airlines, usually too hot upon boarding & too cold 3hrs in... Also, no coach class amenity kit. I think BR gave us "sleeping" face masks for a similar length trip...

TPE
ONT
Excellent 9.0

Cons: Ontario Airport for international arrival is confusing. I think this has to do with more the airport than the airline...although the airline could have helped too. There is no one to ask questions once you exited the security area. The signage is incorrect for airport shuttle to the parking lots. In order to get to the parking lot, one would need to first take a rental car shuttle to the regular terminal and then change to an airport shuttle.

HAN
Excellent 8.0

Pros: The flight TPE - HAN was fine. The flight SFO-TPE was OK. The seat in premium economy did not recline properly. Service seemed to disappear for several hours during the flight. I am not as excited about using premium economy for my return. The seats in economy look very narrow.

Cons: Answered above. The seats looked bigger and better but the equipment looks tired.

Good 7.0

Pros: It was a better experience (no screen that turns off and on by itself, no lopsided tray table) than my outbound flights, so kudos for that. The crew was very pleasant.

Cons: Food/snacks. I know people usually complain about airplane food, but I am not a picky eater and usually eat whatever is provided. I ended up picking at what was served. Perhaps I’m just not used to the selection since I usually fly American planes.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: The staff were actually very nice and possibly the only good thing about this trip.

Cons: The turbulence was the worst I had ever experienced in my life. Granted, I understand nothing can really be done about that but, the captains made little to no effort to inform us when we would be hitting turbulence. All he said was “Crew, take your seats.” People just had to assume we were about to hit turbulence. And gosh was it horrible turbulence. 13 and 1/2 hours and at least 7 incidences of really hard turbulence. I got no sleep at all, cause I was much to afraid to even close my eyes. I wish the capitains could have said something to calm us down. It was frightening.
