BR23 SEA-TPE cancelled after March 2018 ?

I had booked a couple of award seats which got cancelled. Does anyone know if this is seasonal or perm ?

Indeed, it has been removed from the schedule. Surpised it took them that long. Yields are total garbage.

Anybody have any insights what other routes have been pulled from Taiwan to North America?

SEA still has the nighttime BR25/26.

Other than that, capacity reductions for ORD and IAH and that is it.

Capacity increase for SFO though!

I am almost glad to see the daytime Seattle flight disappear. I would definitely not have wanted to see EVA discovering the market for such a flight and "helpfully" eliminating the nighttime flight in favor of the more "convenient" daytime flight. (Something like this actually happened with Asiana -- my first experience ex. Seattle was a nighttime flight. Eventually they changed to a daytime flight instead.)

EVA and CI seem to do better with nighttime flights but aircraft utilization wise, it is a terrible schedule.

Why? It puts the plane in TPE in time to handle an early morning flight back to NA or onward to Asia.

When they land at out stations, they can be parked for 4+ hours with no mx or anything.

Its ok for IAH, YYZ, and JFK but really bad for west coast.

I donít understand why you think a daytime flight is not convenient. Iíve taken the flight several times and the timing worked out very well. Iíd much rather not have to go to the airport at midnight.

It's not great if you're connecting to another Asian city.
