I am a large man and it was agony flying from Los Angeles to Bangkok. No power plug for the laptop. Seat rows too close to use the laptop as the space was too small to unfold it. Seats were fine for small framed people But for large people it made for a very long trip. And forget sleeping, not enough space for that without rolling into somebody.

This was one of the older Boeing 747-400s in the China Airlines Fleet, so therefore there was a lack of entertainment in Economy Class (only an inflight magazine was provided, even on a long flight, like ours which was from Vancouver to Taipei). Some of the facilities (restrooms, etc.) were also slightly older-looking. However, I understand that China Airlines does have some newer 747s with personal televisions at every seat as well as nicer seats (I've been on one of these as well) and these are much more suitable for long-haul flights.

These seats are well-designed and are very suitable for long-haul flights, like the one I took from Taipei-Vancouver. The seat had a personal television as well as a massaging footrest. Though I'm small in size, I still found getting out into the aisle a bit difficult.



CHINA AIRLINES ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW  - 3 March 2009 by Vincent Wang (Australia)

China Airlines A330 configuration means that in the front Economy cabin, AB seats have a wider seat pitch than the other seats as there is one less row of seats on the AB side.





Review:   9 May 2008

Aircraft:  Airbus A330-300

Name:  Vincent Wang

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   2x4x2

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  Maybe

Comfort Score :  7/10

  Legroom space

TPE-SYD was on a newer A330-300. Compared to the A340, the seat pitch was less at 31", making it a bit hard for the person at the window seat to get out. The design of the armrest made the handset stick out quite a bit which can be quite annoying as you often bump into it. However the seat itself was quite nice, with massage rollers on the footrest and decent lumbar support system.

Review:   7 May 2007

Aircraft:  Airbus A340

Name:  Vincent Wang

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   2x4x2

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  8/10

  Legroom space

The seats on the A340-300 were quite comfortable and it was fine for someone large like me. China Airlines has installed foot massage rollers on their footrests on the A330 and A340, which was great for a long haul flight. The only problem was the seat pitch, which wasn't too bad (32") but could have been better.

Review:   7 May 2007

Aircraft:  Boeing 747-400

Name:  Winston Liao

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Medium

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  8/10

  Legroom space

Though not every China Airlines 747-400 are equipped with the new economy seats, the one I was on, was the 'Dream Liner', a newly outfitted 747-400 where the interior atmosphere and design follows that of the 777, more streamlined giving passengers the sense of more room. And now with personal entertainment systems behind each seat, it makes the 18 or so hours from JFK-TPE go so much faster and comfortably.
