Check In / Security

As I had checked in at Seoul for this flight, I had no reason to visit the check in desk again. It looked reasonably well laid out however. Once again, there was no fast track at security, and it was very busy – however it didn’t take too long to pass through both security and passport control.

Lounge

EVA Air have a host of lounges here. I was given an invite to the Infinity lounge, so thats where I headed first. It was very busy, but the design was good enough.

As I was struggling to find a seat, I decided to head across to the Singapore Airlines lounge a short while later, accessed by my Star Alliance Gold status. Thankfully, this was much quieter and was more airy.

Boarding / Onboard

Boarding was delayed due to the fact the aircraft was late arriving on to stand. Once boarding did commence, it was done in groups and from what I could see it was enforced quite well. Once on board, I was shown to my seat in the forward business cabin.

Service

Once settled, I was provided with a welcome drink and hot towel.

Once we had departed, menus were handed out and an initial drinks run was carried out.

Arrival

During descent, sweets were handed out:

Arrival was typical SIN style – very fast and efficient. There was no wait at passport control, my bag was the sixth out and I was at my hotel downtown within thirty minutes of landing.

Conclusions

Another fine flight on EVA Air, where the crew were more than friendly, the food tasty and the Cirrus seats were comfortable.

Check In / Security

Check in was made fairly quickly – due to there being no queue at the business line. My bag was sent on its way to Singapore and I was issued with a pair of boarding passes for this journey.

I attempted to use the fast track security, but was told that business class passengers or status holders weren’t eligible, and that I’d have to use the regular line. Thats the first time I’d experienced that.

Lounge

The lounge I used was over in the satellite area, where most of the non Korean airlines depart from. It resembled a large library and had a good restaurant area too. The only minor complaint was that it was a little dark due to the fact there were no windows.

Boarding / Onboard

 photo IMG_6369.jpg

Boarding was very well organised. Rather than making any PA announcement, the ground crew walked through the gate area with signs asking for group one, two, three etc. and lined them up accordingly. Once on board, I was met with the B/E Aerospace diamond regional cabin.

Service

The service started right as I entered the plane – I was met at the door, shown to my seat and asked if I wanted anything to drink. I ordered a water and it turned up with a hot towel.

A few moments later, menus were handed out.

Once airborne, my meal choice was confirmed (I had pre ordered online) and drinks order was taken. This was handed out a few moments later.

I finished off the service with a Baileys.

And the third hot towel of the day

Arrival

Upon descent a choice of sweets were handed out.

Arrival was made and within a couple of minutes of landing we were on stand. There was a small queue at passport control, but it still took no longer than around ten minutes to be processed.

Conclusions

A decent enough flight with EVA Air. The onboard staff, while seemingly struggling with English a little, were very polite, with lots of pleases and thank you’s as well as thanking me for waiting every time they delivered a meal or a drink. The food was good enough quality and the online ordering is another decent touch.
