After enjoying the flight from New York JFK to Taipei and the EVA Air lounge in Taipei, it was time to our final destination: Hanoi, Vietnam.  This leg, Taipei-Hanoi is part of my round trip business class tickets that I bought using 120,000 United miles (per person).

This shorter flight was not as nice as the previous flight from New York on EVA Air’s Royal Laurel Class but I didn’t expect that.  The flight, service, and food were all very good!


The business class seats were plenty spacious on this MD-90 flight.  The interior looks a bit dated.  In case there was any doubt, these are not lie flat seats – just the normal recline (though I don’t recall even trying it out).  For this short 2 hour flight that was not important, especially after the amazing Eva Royal Laurel Class flight from JFK to Taipei.

There was enough leg room but no entertainment system.  We had plenty of entertainment on the previous flight so it was not important for the next few hours.

The meal arrived and it looked, well, closer to a meal I would expect in coach, served in business class dishes.  Looks can be deceiving, however.  The food was actually good: potatoes, chicken with crispy skin, and veggies.  The fruits were very fresh.

But what’s the empty plate for?  I asked the stewardess and was told, “for bread”.   A minute or two after I started eating, someone came around with bread.  mmmm garlic bread and and a roll… now I can start my lunch.  Or is it dinner?  I don’t know anymore at this point as I’ve just been in planes and lounges for a long time now.

Hanoi, Vietnam, here we come!  The weather looks amazing doesn’t it?

My Camera: These photos were taken using my Canon S110 Digital Camera which has been replaced by the S120.  I love it – it’s tiny, fits in my pocket, and takes amazing pictures/videos.
