This is the first time I fly with this airline. I asked my friends for their recommendations (I have many friends who have been to the United Stated for work and travel and who have liked this airline).
While searching I fell upon “what the flight,” which helped me pick this airline. The other reason is that since Eva Air belongs to Star Alliance and I’m on the Thai Airways frequent-flyer program (Royal Orchid plus, which also belongs to Star Alliance), I was able to accumulate miles.
My flight was Paris – Taipei – Bangkok, but because of an Eva Air agent I was unable to sit by the window on the Paris – Taipei leg, so I wasn't able to film Paris and the landing at Taipei. He put me in seat 55E (I hate being in the middle, I like to be next to the window). For this flight, I was seated in 48K.
The flight attendants : Eva Air’s flight attendants were great. The agency where I bought my ticket had booked me a vegetarian meal even though I hadn't asked for anything and a Paris – Taipei flight attendant offered to change it for me for the Taipei – Bangkok flight. She told me to verify at the airport, because she had contacted Eva Air to change it, but when I arrived there, they were sadly unable to change it, because you have to make the change 24 hours in advance. For the Taipei – Bangkok leg, there were flight attendants speaking fluent Thai, English, or Chinese. Since I speak English and Thai fluently, I had no problems communicating.
The food was good. We could eat either Thai or European, such as chicken and puree, but for this flight I had a vegetarian meal that was relatively good. The carrots were very good and I don’t even like carrots. The dishes weren't served at super speed like with Thai Airways, the flight attendants took their time to serve the passengers.
The in-flight entertainment options were great, almost all the films were in French, it was awesome.
The seat was relatively comfortable.
The take-offs and landings were relatively calm and it took relatively long before the seat-belt lights were turned off, while with Thai Airways the seat-belt lights are turned off right after take-off.
The only thing I didn't like were the sandwiches that they serve, which were not very good.
