I boarded through door L1, where I was greeted by the cabin manager, Amy, and pointed towards the far aisle.
China Airlines’ A330 business class cabin consists of a total of 30 seats, spread across five rows in a 2-2-2 configuration.
The seats are angled flat, and similar to Singapore Airlines’ regional business class product. The catch is that China Airlines actually uses these planes on some longhaul flights.
In general if you’re traveling alone you may be best off going with one of the seats in the center, so you don’t have anyone climbing over you.
However, I had assigned myself seat 4K, the window seat in the fourth row. While the product as such wouldn’t be the most comfortable for a longhaul flight, the seats felt “fresh” and were well maintained.
