The Ritz Hotel London Piccadilly was the venue for a joint presentation between Eva Air and Shanghai Tourism. China’s commercial centre has always been a major attraction for both leisure and business travellers from the UK. Eva Air is promoting ‘One Trip Taiwan Shanghai but has very much Bangkok in focus, enjoying fifth freedom facilities and the ability to sell Heathrow – Bangkok only.
First introduced on the Taipei – New York route in June 2012, Royal Laurel Class is now available on all London flights. In June Eva Air joined Star Alliance and flies daily from Heathrow to Bangkok and onwards to Taipei.
Royal Laurel Class features 38 seats in a reverse herringbone layout, enabling passengers at windows to look out without turning and those in the centre to easily dine and talk with travel companions. Or passengers can use convenient privacy panels to establish inflight cocoons for rest or work, creating what are effectively suites. The seats are 26 inches wide, recline 180 degrees and stretch out 79 inches. There is plenty of space for odds and ends and a convenient seat-side table for beverages, snacks or writing materials. 15.4-inch touch screens and high-fidelity noise-cancelling headphones are offered with a fine IFE selection and various connectivity. www.evaair.com
