Pleasant experience and look forward to using this airline again

published

Flew economy from a Brisbane to Auckland and return and will certainly fly with them again. Service and food were both excellent and I felt there was more leg room.

Very Surprised

published

I was a first time flyer with China Airlines from Brisbane-Taipei-Gatwick return travelling premium economy and was extremely surprised at the very professional staff from the check in process to the wonderful in flight service. Our flight was over 24 hours in total one way and we found all facets of the flight very good, amount of food served extremely sufficient, entertainment offered was first class with latest released movies offered. We were extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the plane during the flight. Would certainly travel with a China Airlines again.

Excellent Business Class on A350

published

SYD-TPE-KIX-TPE-SYD, Business Class. Excellent comfort in the new A350 on SYD-TPE-SYD. Arriving in TPE at 0430 on an extended transit with nothing open, including China Airlines Business Lounge was not a lot of fun.

Wonderful experience with China Airline!

published

Flew Sydney to Taipei - Taipei to Ho Chi Minh and then a return flight to Sydney a week later.
At first comprehensive, but I can now say it was an A++ experience. Everything from flight to in-cabin customer experience was exceptional. So much better than the established. I
I would for sure recommend China Airlines. My family and I will be more than happy to fly with China Airlines in the future.

Well done.

Regards,
Son

Poor Ground Service for Business Class on extra 9kg overweight per person

published

Good except for the lost baggage

published

Flew with them for a few times. Was ok. Except that they lost my luggage with my last flight. Said they will find it in 24 hours and call me back. 48 hours passed no one called me and no one answer the phone for the last 20 hours I try to call them... Wrote an email still no reply... I still hope they will find my bag and give 3 stars.

Value for Money

published

Value for money! Overall does not compare to US airlines or Arab airlines. Would recommend if you can get a discounted flight


Business Class A350 is 5/5, food needs a lot of improvement

Good Experience

published

We flew Sydney to Hanoi return with China Airline as their price was really good compared to others. The cheaper price made us worried about the quality of the flight but we shouldn't have, it was nothing wrong; cabin quite new & service good. We booked our tickets via China Airline own's website, it was easy & simple.

Terrible experience ever

published

Checkin requires your credit card to prove your purchase.

A long delay due to a potential aircraft problem, but it took forever(by the time I typed the review, it has been 2 hours) The crew seemed to have no ideas about what they are doing.

Pricy airline with terrible service. Don't waste your money.

Perfect!

The cabin crew were awesome! Wonderful service. Aircrafts were nice. I also enjoyed the catering. The transit in Taipei was a little rushed, however, it was due to a minimum connection.

FF Points

Flight was OK, but to navigate their website is almost impossible. I have earned frequent flier points that are about to expire. I was trying to find what to do with them - it is just impossible. Wasted 1 hour.

Disgusting food

published

Pretty much ruined my holiday, as I had food poisoning due to the bad food and could not get off the toilet

I was hoping it was a one off, but not to be. On the way home to Sydney, I felt even more upset, but I was too sick to do anything about it and wanted to get home to the toilet asap, but now I am also vomiting. I would not recommend this airline to anyone. Anyone that gives it a positive review did not eat the provided food

Questions & Answers

Beate Thompson

Beate Thompsonasked

I just had an email of China Airlines about changes of my flight times. I am not happy at all, due to this time change I have a 17 hr lay over at Taiwan airport. I wrote an email to China Airline and awaiting an answer. My question is has anyone else had this before? I could understand a few hours but 17 hrs? If so does China Airline come up with a solution as in compensation upgrade or use off the lounge facilities. Food vouchers or anything like this? I although will not be back at work as scheduled. I find this very very unprofessional....

I have been trying for over a month to get hold of a contact address for china airlines in Sydney could you please help me? As I would like to know why my son and his wife could not fly on the ticket they had, but had to get another one on the same flight. Staff could not see any problems with the ticket, but the senior in charge was the problem plus he was so rude my family was so upset. Good way to treat your customers.

If you stay overnight in order to connect with a flight the next day, do you have to have a Chinese visa? And if so, how much would it be and how difficult to get it?

You may mean to ask this question under Air China, as China Airlines is a Taiwanese airline.
