I think for these special events they should really reward loyalty members first and offer the seats maybe up to 24hrs before the general public. Adds reasons why to be a member in the first place, generates more loyalty. And of course advertise it by email well before hand to let members know they will have their chance. Personally I would not consider a final 747 flight unless it was CI 747. Seems even in normal times I would not have had a chance especially with the slow connection from mainland China.

Great report, looks like a wonderful time! I think if I could read Mandarin I might have been able to join on that flight - we had a phone and a computer both refreshing the moment tickets went on sale, but we just couldn't move fast enough.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. That model plane is indeed a treasure to keep!

As my username indicates, I am sad to see these birds disappearing from service.

I have an extra (unopened) scale model aircraft from the China Airlines 747 Farewell Party if anyone wants it. I'll give it away for free if you pay the shipping costs yourself (especially if sending to outside of Taiwan). Please PM if interested. I hope it can find a nice home
