This is a continuation of flight back from Taipei Taiwan to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia via Hong Kong.
The whole flight trip was as below;
Kota Kinabalu (BKI) to Taipei (TPE) - AirAsia
Taipei (TPE) to Hong Kong (HKG) - Hong Kong Airlines
Hong Kong (HKG) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) - AirAsia
I went to the airport using Uber with a good and reasonable fare as early as 4 am. Hong Kong Airlines operating from Terminal 2 along with EVA Air.
Taipei Airport is very unique, love it!
I discovered Taipei is also a Muslim-friendly city. Muslim prayer room is easy to find even at the airport. Plus, they also provide prayer room for other religions.
After that I went straight to the waiting room. Gate C2 for today
Our aircraft for today after having an overnight here.
The real waiting room is actually downstair, not the fancy one with unique and different decorations at each lounge.
After you go down one level below, there will be WC, drink vending machine and a few spot for charging.
Its getting brighter out there as Scoot's B787-9 is being towed to its gate.
New airline, new boarding pass to be kept into my boarding pass album.
Boarding was on time with priorities were called before others.
The whole cabin is like we are celebrating Chinese New Year. All red. Legroom was very generous.
After take off, I explored the IFE. Nothing attractive but at least the screen is responsive.
After I booked this flight, I contact the airline to request for Muslim-friendly meal however I was told that this flight will be a short flight hence only light snack will be served. So I still got this with no choice. I didnt open the wrap to explore what's inside.
As I didn't eat the snack, I brought it to Hong Kong where I found an airport cleaner and give it to hear. She was happy to receive it :D
It was short flight that I can't catch a time to sleep. Then we landed at Hong Kong Airport and pulled to the satellite terminal.
I have to clear immigration and up to departure hall to get my boarding pass for Kuala Lumpur bound flight with AirAsia. There will be no flight report for that leg because I was totally tired and so happy to sleep on the whole flight :)
It was a good experience on Hong Kong Airlines. Nothing to talk much about the airline because it was my first time flying with them. However the check-in attendant at Taipei was very kind.
The cabin was not my favourite, it was a boring atmosphere.
The IFE was just okay, cannot ask for more because even if I'm flying Emirates I still choose to sleep.
Definitely will fly them again, if the price is affordable. (For me, price always come first)
