CAL ranks No. 2 in top 10 online passenger choice


TAIPEI–China Airlines (CAL) was placed second among a top 10 passenger choice airline brands for 2015, according to Design Air, a leading site for airline product news and reviews.

Design Air said that it was surprised to see China Airlines so high on the list, but “there seems to be a lot of love for the carrier in Taiwan, maybe due to its next-generation program, which has seen new uniforms, food, in-flight entertainment, hard product, aircraft, and lounges rolled out across its network,” it said.

In response, CAL noted that since it began using Boeing 777-300ER airplanes last October, with oriental aesthetics and modern technology in cabin design, it has brought a new experience to its passengers.

Cathay Pacific was placed No. 1, while Eva Air was third in a lineup of mostly airlines based in the Asia Pacific region, including Singapore Airlines (4), Hawaiian Airlines (5) and Qantas (7).
