Flight: EVA Air BR 392
From: Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) To: Taipei (TPE)
EVA Air is a member of Star Alliance so I used United Miles for this flight. It cost me 20,000 points plus $20USD in taxes.
The flight time was three hours and was in a Boeing 777. The seat configuration in economy was 3-3-3.
Upon boarding there a was sticker on the door proclaiming Wi-Fi. I would normally get excited by that sticker but I kept my excitement at bay until I checked the prices.
The WI-Fi fees are:
Cool that it is available if you need it, but at those prices I wasn’t compelled to go online. I still enjoy the enforced offline time that comes with flying so I prefer to read, listen to music, or watch a movie.
EVA have inflight entertainment available which includes a USB option if you BYO entertainment. With only three hours flying time, by the time lunch was served and cleared up I didn’t bother with the entertainment.
For lunch I picked the chicken noodle (I never pick the fish!) which came with a salad and fruit.
Overall I was happy with the flight. EVA Air often have deals from North America to Southeast Asia and I am considering doing another visit to Taiwan as a stopover to North America for the next time I go.
