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.
