Hello everyone, welcome to the fifth part of the trip to Asia. This report will cover the flight from Hong Kong to Taipei with EVA Air.

On the day of flight, we took a taxi directly from our hotel to the airport. Check-in counters were located at aisle E and there was a lot of people, so one of the airport staff was suggesting us to use the automatic check-in which might be faster. I printed out the baggage tags at the machines, and tried to check the luggage, but it wasn't successfully, because one of them was slightly over the allowance and the process was terminated. I had to go to the counter but luckily I did not require to queue from the beginning.

I received my boarding pass also for the connecting flight to Munich.

Then we passed through security check and immigration without much effort. Our gate was assigned at 30.

At 19:24 the crew was distributing duty free catalogue. About 10 minutes later, it was announced that we would have 20 minutes delay due to cargo loading. Afterwards the crews provided some water to us.

At 19:52pm, cabin doors were closed and safety demonstration video was followed.

At 20:15pm, another announcement informing that the cargo loading was completed, but we still had to wait for our turn to takeoff, roughly 15 to 20 minutes. Eventually pushback was initiated at 20:21pm. Cabin light was turned off.

About 25 minutes into the flight, I received the meal. Starting from October 2023, EVA Air is resuming the hot meal service for the Hong Kong route. A snack and a barley drink were served together on the tray.

Finally we landed at 21:57pm. After some minutes of taxing, we parked at gate D7. This was a rare to me, because D gates are usually used by China Airlines.
