• VA business on 777 and A330 was always a personal favourite, as well as the PE product on the 777. Very sad to see this happen, but I guess it was inevitable. Glad the airline appears to be surviving.

  • China Airlines is one of those underestimated/forgotten carrier that flys to Australia. They have an excellent value for money product, slightly different way to get to Europe / East Coast USA, and great connections in Europe with SkyTeam. I wish them all the best with the name change....
