TRIP REPORT INDEX
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.
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?
