“Best leg room ”
Review of EVA Air


Reviewed 28 August 2018 via mobile

A quick disclaimer to advise this wasn't technically an EVA Air flight - it had originally been booked with Air NZ but they had 'borrowed' one of the EVA fleet when their plane was out of action. So we still maintained the Air NZ crew & pilots & the top notch Air NZ service.
So into my review :) My husband is 6'3 and I'm ' so after a cramped 13hr flight to Vancouver in Economy we were not looking forward to the return leg. Even more so when we were advised it was in a different plane so our 'seat selection' could not be accommodated. But oh my stars, were we pleasantly surprised! Fantastic leg room in economy. Neither of our legs were jammed against the seat in front, even when the person reclined, we could fully extend our legs under the seats, and we had more room width way. It made for a much more pleasant flight home (although the entertainment selection was rubbish) but not really a biggie as I could actually get some sleep or concentrate to read my book. Would definitely fly again with EVA Air if just for the room.

It was my first time flying with EVA and I was pleasantly surprised! All of the in-flight accommodations and amenities were great, as well as the service.

It was our 1st time using Eva air and we were nervous because of the long flight.. however, service was great, plane very comfortable and price pretty resonable.
The only thing were not prepared for is asina food on the plane, but if you like it - shouldnt be a problem, i just personally cant eat it...

We spent the extra funds for the premium economy, given the extremely long flight. Given the quality of EVA, I'm not sure it was worth the extra money. But, the food was good, the ride was comfortable, and the entertainment was good. The WIFI was not always good, so I question if it's worth the cost. Best of all-the flight attendants are wonderful, and go out of their way to make the flight comfortable.

We booked our tickets in January. Not realising we could book our seats straight away. So from Heathrow we had separate seats. Our 11 hours journey was made very comfortable by the spacious seat, staff that were polite and helpful, plenty of different entrainments to choose from and the food was good.
On our return journey the staff at Bangkok were very efficient and very helpful/friendly. Again we were separate but the airport staff manage to find us a seat together.
we certainly will be travelling with them again.
Would highly recommend this airline.
