China Airlines was established 16 December 1959 year. At the time of creation, the company was completely subordinate to the government of China, which owned a controlling stake. Initially, China Airlines acted as a charter air carrier, but already at the beginning of 60-ies the first regular route was organized. Later, in connection with the acquisition of new aircraft, the airline began to serve several more regular routes to South Vietnam, Hong Kong and Japan. In 1972, due to the prevailing political situation, Japan completed diplomatic relations with Taiwan. As a result, part of the flights between Taiwan and Japan were closed.

Over the next 20 years, the airline developed slowly but steadily. Throughout the 80s, many former Chinese Air Force pilots were employed by China Airlines. In the 1990s, the company began actively recruiting civilian pilots with a proven track record. In addition, significant changes were introduced in the procedure for maintaining and repairing aircraft. All these measures have led to significant improvements in safety performance. The culmination was the inclusion of China Airlines in the list of the safest air carriers in the world, according to IATA Operational Safety Audit statistics.

Flying business class, however, and the food and service quality is worse than in economy class peers.

The aircraft is spacious enough and does not cause feelings of stiffness. Fly like it. The staff in general well done, for such little money are willing to do for you everything you ask for, and in fact the majority of the air carriers that can only dream of.

I liked that tickets are always available, it does not matter which way you are going to fly, and the price reasonable compared to other airlines so that he was satisfied!

Impressions after the flight only the most positive. The flight took place without complications, the crew friendly, well-groomed girls, without exception, are dressed in airline shape. Toilet and interior, very clean, almost to sterility. Before eating all issued wipes that for me personally it was very convenient. When flying in the last time, we had to go after them in the toilet.

Unhappy with the airlines. They have a small weight limit for hand baggage and luggage. At the same time it is much less than that of many international airlines. Therefore, I will not fly with this airline, and strongly regrets that all booked their flight. Despite this, my assessment is high. They have great food, good service and competitive prices. But because I'm taking a trip of many goods with the airline I fly is simply not profitable.
