China airlines from Europe to Asia

Hi

I'm thinking about going to Thailand in May and I have started checking up prices for flights. The cheapest option seems to be China Airlines. I have never used them before so I'm not really sure what to expect. Has anyone got any recent experience with this airliner? Is there enough legroom? What is the service like on economy? Is there are personal TV screen?

Regards
Gard

Gard if you mean the Taiwanese carrier, yes I have flown them from JFK to Taipei and on to Saigon. Economy. This was in 2000; I did not have the personal tv but that may have changed. The flight was fine for economy. I would fly them again. But I am not tall.

Hi

Thanks for the feedback. I got an even better deal with SAS/Thai so I have gone for that option instead

Bangkok Airways does not fly from Europe to Asia, they are simply a regional airline.

Hello Norway! You and your wife are amazing!
I just looked at your webpage that appears to possibly answer any questions one might have about traveling.
I printed up your description of Beijing. Ironically, we are going there out of JFK, in March, so the weather will probably be identical.
Bravo.
and Thank you!

Another hello to Norway Gard. I also read your China report. Good work! I am headed that way in March as well, also from NYC, but making a stop in Seoul.
