Taipei - Hong Kong China Airlines A330


Previous Trip:
Cathay A350 (HKG-TPE)
Flight Video


Just after landing from the Cathay A350 from hong kong, I spent 2 days in taipei before flying back to Hong Kong to take an extra trip to Singapore (this will be a good comparison with cathay's HKG-TPE). Instead of going on one flight via scoot airlines for around 168. I decided to take China Airlines and United Airlines for a total of 230 mainly because they China airlines takes Paypal and it's better now that i'm in Dollars already to just pay like that plus it's nice to go on full service airlines and try out united.
I stayed close to the airport and did some filming here and made some friends as you do in a hostel.
Played Uno with a guy from america, girls from mainland china and taiwanese girls, i usually shy away from big groups but asian girls are so friendly and make me feel at home




I got their free ride to the airport and this time made sure i had nothing over 30CM (25CM according to this different security guy at the airport who wanted to have a look at my even smaller tripod but he gave up after looking in one zip pocket and then waved me off)
I checked in online but needed a boarding pass so i went to the bag drop which was around a 7 minute wait.
went through to departures and had a livestream on youtube.
TPE-HKG has to be the busiest route with 4 Cathay's at TPE at any time and plenty of china airlines doing the route.

Please watch the full flight video

In most asia countries they believe in having enough people for the job



















I just realised what i've took a picture of what on earth


Hang around outside for 4 hours before my flight on united airlines

CI catering is really bad, comparing to CX on the same route...
