In September this year we covered the launch of Taiwanese carrier EVA Air’s new Business Class seats on its latest 787 aircraft. This product marked a switch from the Star Alliance carrier’s existing ‘reverse herringbone’ format seating, in favour of the all forward-facing Thompson Aero Seating Vantage XL, used by airlines like Qantas.

EVA has been using the aircraft on flights from Taiwan to Hong Kong since the beginning of this month, with Tokyo and Osaka to follow in December. It has just announced the first long-haul services with the type on the Taipei – Bangkok – Vienna and Taipei – Vienna routes from mid-May 2019, with Taipei – Bangkok – Amsterdam following in June 2019.
