Hello guys, I would like to show you my recent flight on EVA Air's 787 dreamliner flight from Vancouver to Taipei. Before we begin, let me show you little cuties I spotted at YVR.

Jet Blue's A320 to New York. This flight was supposed to leave at 23:30 the previous date, but it was delayed until 16:50 and it brought long lines in front of A&W.

Lufthansa's A350 to Munich.

YVR recently updated its international terminal (D gates). They created an outdoor atrium where you can get some fresh air. However it was closed, so I couldn't get into there. I was craving for fresh air so much during this 9-hour lay over.

My plane has arrived. This flight is operated by 787-9 (B-17802). It's my second time riding on it. 

I was my first time being so close with an A380!!!! I was so amazed by its wide, lengthy body and the rounded nose. Staring at her was my way to kill 2 hours at this airport.

First inflight meal, pork noodles with lemon cake, shrimp salad and fruits. Very tasty meal although the portion was a bit small.

Honestly, EVA AIR is considered as one of the best airlines in the world. However, I found that the selections for inflight entertainment are not enough. There aren't many movies, and when they do offer movies they are relatively old. There weren't many options and literally everyone onboard was watching the same movie (because options are limited). This 11 h-our flight was a bit boring.
The meals were tasty, but the portion was small as I mentioned before. The bread rolls are warm though, especially many other airlines aren't offering warm bread in economy class anymore. Also, I do like the idea that they started breakfast service 2.5 hours before landing, so they have time ti prepare for arrival.
Cabin crew were polite, but they were "too standardized". I felt like they were just using what the company taught them to do when interacting with passengers. However, they were still efficient and they did an amazing job on ensuring the safety of the flight. They always conduct the safety check in an extreme serious manner, unlike other airlines.

    Thanks for sharing another nice report! EVA Air offer a solid product in general and deserve their good reputation for the most part. A shame about the IFE content--I assume this is a Covid-related measure to save on costs as this is an easy way for carriers to save a good amount of money quickly. Some carriers completely shut off their IFE during much of the pandemic for this reason. Definitely not ideal on a 12-hour flight!

    Thanks for sharing!
