EVA Air should check the aircraft air conditioning systems. My flight BR12 was just too hot! It made the flight very uncomfortable. Cabin crew service was superb though. But please adjust the cabin temp to be cooler. That was my 3rd flight with them that has the same problem.

Spent the extra money on Elite Class and was quite excited until I sat down and saw the oversized entertainment box right directly where my legs should have gone. This is for window seats row A. All the window seats (and in K too) seemed to have this same problem. As a result you either have to sit diagonally with both legs on the left side, or do the splits, with a leg on each side, but the problem with this is that the left leg's calf muscle will have the corner of the foot rest jar up into the muscle causing pain after some time. Also, when fully reclined, it is difficult to get your feet under the seat in front of you. The concept is good, but the execution is utterly terrible and I was very disappointed not to sleep for the 10-hour flight because of constantly trying to juggle one of the above two positions, neither of which worked. Shame on the engineers here.

Thought that flying Premium Economy would give us a little extra but found that it didn't add much that you get in Economy with other airlines. We were sat on the left hand side right over the engines (seats 24 A & B) which was very noisy and bumpy. The seats are some of the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in for an 8 hour flight with a leg rest that leaves your feet dangling and cuts into the calfs of your legs. When the seat in front was reclined I had 2 inches between my knees and the back of that seat. Because of the boxes around the chair anchor points I was made completely immobile with nowhere to put my feet and had to sit in a skewed position with both legs bent to the right. The food wasn't too good either. I ended the flight feeling very stiff and sore. I was expecting Premium Economy but only had Economy service.

Taipei to Los Angeles, seat 71B the PTV screen is the best in this flight but the legroom is not so big but I would recommend these seats to others because the seat is good.

I can recommend seats 22C, 22G and 23H if you like the aisle seats in premium economy as I sat in all of them plus a few others. 23 H and K do have the IFE box next to your feet if I remember correctly.

On a 20hr flight to BKK via Taipei I flew economy class. I was surprised how short the seat pitch was. Seating in a window seat proved difficult getting in/out of when two other passengers were sound asleep. With barely enough room for my carry on, it was reduced even more when in the recline position as the footrest took up additional space. The seat in front of me reclined is seat and almost cracked the top of my laptop. The connecting flight was no improvement as my leg room was confiscated by the IFE box located in the seat in front of me. On the return I paid the additional upgrade fee to sit in economy plus - well worth the extra bucks! The seats are 2x2 with good leg room and seat width.

I had a seat in Economy Class, and booked a seat online on the upper deck of EVA Air's 747-400 from TPE-YVR (I believe rows 70-89 are upper deck). On the upper deck of this particular plane, the formation is 3-3, and at 36” the seat pitch is actually 1-2” more than Economy on the lower deck (and much more than most other airlines in Economy)! My seat was 89K, a window seat in the last row of the upper deck. There is a wall behind me, but even so, I could incline back for about 5”, which is plenty to have a good rest. There were two windows, and on the upper deck there is a storage compartment next to all the window seats on which you can place your bag or other items, so you don’t need to put your things under the seat in front of you, providing more legroom.

BKK-LAX (via TPE) return Elite/Premium Economy. Worth paying a a little more for this - especially for a long flight and if you are tall like me (6'3"). The seat was wide and comfortable, and had plenty of leg room. The recline could be a bit better but not bad. Had own AVOD system with good films.

For a B777-300ER, I thought that EVA would have the decency to put in a footrest. IFE box are located underneath the seats, which makes it uncomfortable to stretch out. For those who plan on flying economy with EVA, I recommend spending a few extra dollars and get an Elite seat instead. A far cry from SIA B777-300er economy.

Economy deluxe cabin (elite class), which is worth the upgrade. The seat had superb leg space, were very soft and had a cradle design. When you recline your sliding seat you will notice that the recline is superb. The seat recline is not electronic, however is manually operated by pulling two buttons. The seats had an adjustable headrest. The PTV monitor is 8 inches and remote control is located on the middle armrest. There is SMS email service available for optional pay use, and there are electrical outlets located at the seat bottom. There is no foot rest however to replace it is a sofa recline leg rest which can be extended for certain body heights.

Good bang for your buck type of deal. The seat is pretty good for economy, although lacks some spacious qualities, its not that bad. I had an emergency exit/aisle seat so I was extremely happy with my seat leg room and mobility. However seeing the screen for movies was difficult and I was right next to the lavatories, so I had people walking past me the entire flight and I could hear every flush. Seat was confortable, with a leg rest, reclines well and has pretty good width.

We were very lucky at check-in to be put on the upper deck. The cabin feels so much more spacious than the lower deck economy seats and has much more leg room and storage space. BKK - LHR we were able to check in online so did this as soon as possible and again were allocated upper deck seats. These seats cannot be pre-allocated on the lower economy fares so get to check in as early as possible or check-in online if available.
