china-airlines.com ($16.95) and 24 hours ($21.95). I bought the one-hour package and found it quite smooth for uploading photos and browsing the Internet. The Sky Lounge in-flight bar is another plus for China Airlines’ passengers. Designed with both Western and Eastern influences, it offers Taiwanese and Western teas and sweets, coffee and instant noodles as well as alcohol.
We touched down at Taipei Taoyuan International Airport on schedule. There were not many travelers that early in the morning, so clearing immigration and collecting my luggage was a swift affair.
With a long, comfortable bed, very good food and friendly cabin crew, this is an excellent option for the long-haul route between Europe and the Far East.
