EVA AIR 2018 Outlook/Future Fleet Plans

EVA Air is predicting 4% sales growth in Northeast Asia and 10% sales growth throughout the system for 2018. It is also on track to outperform Evergreen Marine this year.

In addition, Mgmt. has given it's future plans for the 789/78X. Aircraft will initially be used on regional routes, before shifting into Europe/Oceania. Looks like there will be growth in Europe and Oceania! They expect to receive 24 of them by 2022. 2 will arrive in Q3 of this year.

747F freighters will be gone by the beginning of next year, replaced by 777F in a one-for-one replacement/retirement schedule.

Revenue for the first two months of this year has already grown 11.83%(though yield has not been very good due to higher oil prices).

EVA Air to outpace marine line, Evergreen Group says - Taipei Times

As previously posted, they will begin Chiang Mai service this year. Other destinations are being studied in Europe/Oceania.

Mgmt's goal is to make the airline better through greater growth in revenue and expansion as they move forward. Labor relations are looking good for this year.

Sad to see no mention of a North America expansion. Maybe we'll have to wait for Starlux airlines, haha!

I see a downsize of their North America operations. Some destinations like Chicago is probably better utilized with a 789 than 77W.

However, they need a lot more destinations to expand in regional, Europe and Oceania with all these aircraft coming in cause I think the 78X won't reach most NA destinations.

ORD, IAH is probably 789 destination.

This new management does not like to announce new routes prematurely (like chiang mai, it wasn't really mentioned before the official announcement) so let's wait and see maybe some more new destinations could appear when they finalize!

ORD might be better when Foxconn opens the Wisconsin plant.

Are ORD yields strong enough to sustain a 777 until its opening in 2020?

Forgot to mention but BR will be stepping up their social media presence, especially in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Contracts were forged with social media marketing companies last year and the presence can already be felt with more advertising/posts on their social media accounts than before(though online help is still crap).

They are also encouraging OLCI so that they can cut down pax check-in time, reduce the # of ground staff allocated to check-in and assign them to airside(where there is a total shortage of staff) in addition to rolling out more kiosk check-in at certain outstations in the coming year.

A new customer call center system will be introduced for EVA Air North America at the end of this year which will help to ease the burden on the overcrowded phone lines.
They are also introducing a new cargo tracking system and better improvements to their app/website.
They are also introducing a new duty free system that uses the onboard connectivity(A321/A332 will use a satellite type system that the pilot use).

One area for improvement would be a 24hr customer service hotline, at least for Taiwan. The current hours are very annoying if you want to change reservations, especially last min.

I, personally, would like them to start service to IAD, and to destinations in India. Wishful thinking?

Cost...they feel it is too high to maintain more than two shifts of call center people.
