    Default Flights from SG to TW

    Anyone knows which airlines ply the SG to TW route? I'm trying to find one which :

    1. Uses Airbus 330 planes (I prefer planes with a two seater configuration at the window sides.

    2. Direct flights (seems to be cheaper?).

    I checked my usual Cathay Pacific - costs a bomb, 2.6k per ticket with stopover for an hour in HKG.

    Eva Air, direct from Singapore to Taipei, use Airbus A330-200.

    Thanks Astin for the recommendation. I've just looked at it, seems cheap and got the times/flights I want. But it may be alittle too cheap haha - is this a "budget airline"?

    I forgot to say that I don't quite like budget airlines :P

    Not sure if it's A330, but I just booked a flight to Taiwan in early July via jetstar, cost is 74 dollars 1 way, less taxes. inclusive everything, a return trip cost me $232

    No la, Eva Air is a premium airline, they hire all the model-quality stewardess, many years ago they already had inflight entertainment way ahead of SIA.

    Agree with Astin. I took EVA Air to LAX before. Damn good service and legroom is much better than SQ.

    Since when did EVA air become a budget airline?

    Anyways. Not all of their flights are as good. I took a flight during the CNY period and it was pretty cramped w/o any of the usual entertainment stuff that we find on the current planes. 900 when I took the flight, now should be at least 33% cheaper I guess.

    When taking eva air, you may want to check their deluxe class. Much bigger seats than econ class and cost only a little more.

    2.6k is on cathay pacific. I suspect its becuas there's transit in HKG, thus jacking up the price.

    there's also China Airlines - they have A330 flying from TPE to SIN. however KHH to SIN is on the B737-800.

    not sure how it'll stack up against EVA fares though.

    I am not sure abt fare, normally my company make all the bookings for me, but I think its not expensive as compared with SIA. Currently all major airlines are having promo to fill up the empty seats due to bad economy, so u may shop around for good deal. Haha, now I wish I could go Taipei again...

    I agree with coolsigg that EVA air is good. Makes the long flight to LAX less painful.

    Hmm seems like everyone's giving a vote for Eva Air. The price looks damn good too - I saw one at only 300SGD....almost unbelievable...
