China Airlines Premium Business Class between San Francisco and Taipei is a great product, and definitely among the most stylish ways you can travel to Taiwan.

The process of trip reporting has always been a passion of mine and is one of main reasons that I started this blog in the first place. Here is my trip report Hall of Fame – a collection of the top 10 reviews of all-time as judged by your views.
I’ve had a blast being featured on BoardingArea this week, and as a final reminder before signing off, make sure to sign-up for the newsletter or follow me on social media to keep updated on all the latest posts. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of the top posts from the past week.
As a relatively infrequent flyer, I mainly view myself as an airline free agent and will usually just chase the best deal for that particular trip. However, I do have one exception to the rule, and that’s for flying Alaska Airlines to Hawaii.
In recent years, I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to fly both Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific’s First Class products. But when I think back and try to compare the two, it’s actually been kind of hard to do. But during this trip I’d truly have an opportunity to get a head-to-head comparison of the two, since I was flying both in the same 24-hour period. And I made sure to use this chance to keep a running tally of the pros and cons of my flight on each airline.
I had already burned enough miles on my flights from San Francisco to New York, so I wasn’t looking to do anything crazy for the return home. As I shopped around for tickets back to San Francisco, since I was booking just a week prior to departure, ticket prices across the board were really high. However, I noticed that JetBlue’s Mint Class was priced at $549, and with the relatively small difference between that and the price of an economy ticket, I decided to give Mint it a shot.
Our truffle adventure was sadly over and it was time to head home the same way that we had come. The drive from Piedmont, Italy to Zurich took about six hours, and after stuffing our faces at the Christmas Market in Zurich that evening, we spent the night once again at the Marriott. We were up bright and early the next day, and the first leg of our journey home was an uneventful flight from Zurich to London.
Cathay Pacific’s First Class is one of the most desirable products out there today, and It’s also one of the hardest to book with miles, since award availability for these seats typically opens up just a week or two prior to departure. So up to this point, my only experience with Cathay Pacific First Class had been over two years ago. Luckily, this trip had come together last-minute anyways, and I ultimately had my pick of three out of the four daily flights that Cathay Pacific operates between Hong Kong and New York.
