EVA Air New Routes
 
EVA will be opening new routes at Songshan to Mainland China. These were previously Transasia Airways routes.

TSA-HGH
TSA-CKG
TSA-TSN

EVA also has filed for nonstop TPE-VIE service, probably to compete with CI's new direct service that has increased to 5 weekly now.

Is there really that much demand for TPE-VIE? I'm a bit surprised VIE is so well served from TPE compared to LHR or FRA, for instance.

Vienna is mainly a tourist spot for the Taiwanese travel groups. Yields are neither good nor bad. It's an alternative destination to Munich since no Taiwanese carriers may fly there.

Is this potentially going to impact the BKK-TPE flights that are done on the 77W (and can be part of the VIE<>BKK<>TPE routing)? It would suck to be downgraded from business on a 77W (which I am currently on now) to an A321...

They are continuing the 4x weekly TPE-VIE via BKK. This is an expansion of the flights. BKK is a huge money maker for them, there is no way they will start flying the small planes. There are a lot of Taiwanese people opening factories and companies in BKK so there is quite a bit of premium traffic. The smallest I have ever seen on the BKK route is an A330.

They really should do something with that shared lounge at TSA - it is crowded and food offering was not very good.

Rumors have it BR will fly TPE to Sydney, Auckland, and Hawaii next year on 787s.

That makes sense. They used to do both SYD and HNL with the 767.

Would be great to have HNL next year.

Nice! Do you know if these routes are planned for the 787-9s or 787-10s? My guess is the -10s given the flight ranges and potential loads.

I didn't hear anything about that. In any case, I'm excited to fly the new planes!

No. IAD was being studied last year though.

MUC has been rumored for a while now. If rumor hold true, it'll be some time in 2018.
