Cons: "Sorry, I’m always picky about the thinness of the seat cushions, the meals, and the IFE. But I still rate China Airlines as the best affordable Chinese Airlines I’ve flown. And it’s super convenient that China Airlines flies out of Ontario CA now. ONT vs LAX. It’s a no brainer. ONT every time."
Cons: "The airline ran out of meal choices before reaching row 5 of the economy class. Seat armrest were locked in place and did not pivot up to allow using the adjacent empty seat. The boarding was tedious and slow. Airline officials did not board according to zone numbers printed on the boarding pass."
Cons: "Ontario Airport for international arrival is confusing. I think this has to do with more the airport than the airline...although the airline could have helped too. There is no one to ask questions once you exited the security area. The signage is incorrect for airport shuttle to the parking lots. In order to get to the parking lot, one would need to first take a rental car shuttle to the regular terminal and then change to an airport shuttle."
Cons: "Everything perfect"
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"

Cons: "How can u loose a luggage"
Cons: "I had a bad flight, we had 16 hrs delay because technical breakdown. I can understand it, but everybody on the flight were really upset with china airline attitude. All passengers must sit on the plane for 3 hours before we went out of the plane, at that time the flight attendants and crew leave without an explanation, We didnt know what happnened!!!!! And during 16 hrs delay in Sanfransico Airport, we didnt have hotel for rest, we really tired without sleep. I dont know how to explain my thinking about chine airline attitiude, really upset with their way about problem solving. I just can say that i will never flight with china airline again in the future..."

Cons: "The plane was older and starting to show signs of wear and tear. The snacks were okay, but the meal served was nearly inedible. Limited selection of beverages. The entertainment system was slow and did not contain as much content as other international lines I've flown."
Pros: "China Airlines does an excellent job at doing their best to accommodate passengers that do not speak the native language. During my whole experience with China Airlines, I really felt I was a valued customer."
Cons: "The only problem with the flight was out of China Airlines control. A shuttle bus to terminal had issues and we had to wait onboard for another bus. The crew still did a great job keeping us informed of the situation."
Pros: "I fly to South East Asia quote often and have tried a a few airlines. China Airlines has been the most consistent in all aspects. On time, ease of flying, on board entertainment. I will continue to look to use this Airline in the future."
Cons: "The food could be better. Maybe offer an American choice?"
Pros: "All of stewardesses helped me a lot with their happiness. I love the way they answered their customer."
Cons: "I didn't like the chair because it was quite small and I couldn't sleep well during the flight."
Cons: "Curry chicken noodles"
Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."
Pros: "Professional staff"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Cabin air temperature was hot, no way to individually change air temperature to your seating. Too big of gap between eating, must take snacks."
Pros: "Aside from the one issue mentioned, everything else was fine."
Cons: "The flight took off on time and then veered far off the usual route, resulting in arrival an hour late. If any explanation was given in any language, I must have missed it."

Cons: "Terrible seating and mediocre food"
Pros: "on time and cordial staffs"
Cons: "seats are small , no refreshment at the back room like water drinks snacks to be self serving"

Cons: "Could have used a bit more privacy"
Pros: "Nothing about the flight I can recall was pleasant"
Cons: "From the time we board at Taipei, the gentleman checking our ticket was rude. The flight crew member was not straighten out the customer who are loud and causing trouble for other customer. Seat was uncomfortable and small. I've suffered back pain due to the cramped seating and also my seat reclining was broken, every time I've tried reclining it just snap back. The food was bad, the bun/biscuit was hard when given to us."
Pros: "I had to make an emergency trip back home ASAP, and China Airlines had the best schedule. It was my first time flying with them, and I was not sure what to expect. Some quick research about safety and traveler experiences - indicated it would be a reasonably safe and comfortable flight. It was - good seats, smooth takeoff and landing, diligent attendants, and meal service was decent (for example - on par with KLM, better presentation than Air India, not as good as Qatar or ANA). I would consider flying with them again."
Cons: "Lunch meal was a rice/chicken/vegetable/thick sauce micture. Decent, but I was a bit put-off by the soupy rice. Perhaps because I had the congee for the breakfast meal, and had had enough of rice porridge texture."
Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."
Pros: "I had a sudden swelling of my feet and ankles while flying to Asia.. China Airlines was very accommodating to me and had a wheel chair waiting for me at the gate... Never had this happen,,, So they were very helpful and considerate..."
Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."
Pros: "The food was excellent, service equals any other airline I've flown on and better than most. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment selection was outstanding."
Cons: "I can't think of a thing that wasn't to my liking."
Pros: "food and crew members were great."
Pros: "direct fight"
Cons: "rude passenger who refused to put down his arm rest in between us. the food was really bad. our seats got switch after airport check in."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
