Photo review of EVA Air flight from Hong Kong to Taipei in Economy

Welcome to the third part of the trip to Asia. This report will cover the flight from Hong Kong to Taipei.

1. Part 1 LX3627 MUC -> ZRH Here
2. Part 2 LX138 ZRH -> HKG Here
3. Part 3 BR828 HKG -> TPE [You are here]
4. Part 4 BR867 TPE ->HKG Here

6. Part 6 OS117 VIE -> MUC Here

Since the flight was quite early in the morning, I took a taxi directly to the airport. My flight departed from Gate 512, which indicated that a bus connection to the aircraft was necessary. While I was waiting for boarding, I found a place to charge my phone. Boarding was a little bit earlier than expected, I was on the first bus to the aircraft. Priority boarding for bus gate has no meaning, as everybody eventually packed in the same bus.

Our aircraft was parked at N141. B-16226, an A321 already in its new livery. This aircraft was delivered to EVA Air in September 2016. It seems that EVA Air is putting more A321 on this route.

20 minutes after take-off, a meal was served. I always appreciate that EVA Air still serve a decent meal for such a short flight.

I haven't took any photos during landing. At 8:57am, our plane touched down on RWT05L. This north RWY was closed for renovation until 24th December 2015. We finally parked at gate D4.

As we already have some reports for the HKG-TPE route on EVA Airways, so I tried to make this report short and simple.
