"narrow and uncomfortable"

(Canada)

The A340 seats were too narrow and uncomfortable. The remote, because of the narrowness, was difficult to extract from the arm. My food tray which had to be extracted from the arm of the seat folded out with no clearance between it and my body so all my food was not level. I will never take another flight with China Airlines because of this. The very long flight from BKK and Amsterdam was not a pleasure.

"it was agony"

(United States)

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.

"a lack of entertainment"

(Canada)

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.

"seats are well-designed"

(Canada)

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.

"seats have a wider seat pitch"

(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.
