After the days in TaiChung, I went to Taipei and had the plane spotting in
Taipei Songshan Airport.
You may find the photo as below.


<<Onboard>>
After the trip in Taipei, is time to Hong Kong.
The plane of CI919 is B-18906, it is A350-900.
It was my 4th time on CI's A350. Everything is fine beside the long queue.


<<Seat and the facility>>
My seat is 32G, it is the aisle seat.
You can find that the use the noise-cancellation headphone which is better than Economy Class.
The washroom is clean and the remote is easy to use.


<<Ready to takeoff>>
I found the 34H and 34K is no one and I asked the FA to change the seat to 34K.


<<Meal>>
I have per-ordered the child meal.
The child meal is better than the normal one. As you can see the normal meal is the taro and pork
rice noodle. If you compare with the child meal, the rice noodle is not attractive. The child meal may
be the best Economy meal in HKG-TPE route.


<<Cruising>>
Due the full loading in Economy class, I decided to seat and relax in my seat instead. I really like
the design of the recline. Because the fix back seat is the nice design and you would not disturb the passenger.


<<Landing>>
The landing is smooth and comfy, really like the quite of A350.

Conclusion

Although is not my first time onboard the CI's A350.
I still felt the excellent service by the flight attendant and the tasty meal in the short haul flight.

If you like to experience the new plane in the short haul flight, HKG-TPE is the good choice.

    I have always a weak for China Airlines and was sad to see that CI decided to cancel the AMS-BKK route to start flying AMS-TPE. Their livery however I absolutely love, but colour of the seats is a bit dull I must admit. It was a lovely read though, thanks for sharing your report. Might try to fly them in the future once again via TPE.
