I'm interested in a business-class trip to Asia this fall, and looking at the EVA Air schedule, it appears that Seattle is slated for 3x weekly 777-300ER service to Taipei starting on August 7, 2014 (flight BR25 on Thursdays, Saturdays, Mondays). This runs the through the current end of schedule in December 2014. Is this aircraft type used as a placeholder, or is this the real deal? SEA is way more convenient for me than SFO or LAX, but I'd go the extra distance for guaranteed Royal Laurel service. Thoughts?

New 777-300ER (77A) planes are scheduled to be put in service starting in May 2014, so extra 77W may be available for SEA-TPE.

You can do a dummy booking and see what seat map comes up.

Looks like it is back to 744s for Seattle in December

Was just looking at potential flights in December and noticed that it's back to 744s for December

I noticed the same thing. Any theories as to whether this is an actual change or maybe they just haven't filled the schedule that far out?

SEA continues to be a great cargo o/d market for BR, so unfortunately for us self-loading freight, we continue to see the 744. And that's fine for Elite and Coach, not great if you want RL.

I just booked 12/8 SEA-TPE and picked up the 777 (much to my surprise/delight) but the return I have on 12/19 (Friday) TPE-SEA is on the 747.

Very excited to ride BR25 from SEA - TPE, then BR225 onwards to SIN, all on the 777.

Grabbed 2A/2D for myself and the fiance en route to our honeymoon.

On route home to SEA from SIN in early december, also checking out ANA's 787 in J.

Thanks *G. Looking forward to it! ^

I noticed that 777 is used to fly Macao and Jakarta this week and next week. I guess they could have used it for Seattle if it weren't for the cargo thingie.

My guess is 2016. The speculation is ORD 2015 and then IAH.

This probably has to do with the new (3rd) 77A they just got delivered (did not see any news but it was supposed to be delivered in June). They are doing short hauls first before moving it to long haul.

IAH is no competition, CA is dominating so much/
