China Airlines named best in N. Asia

Taipei--China Airlines (CAL,中華航空), Taiwan's largest carrier, said earlier this week that it had been chosen as the best airline in North Asia by travel magazine Global Traveler.

The airline was rated the region's best carrier through a survey among over 22,000 subscribers to the magazine, which asked frequent business and luxury travelers to name the best in a variety of travel-related categories.

CAL Chairman Sun Huang-hsiang(孫洪祥) said the company will continue to provide high-quality services for global travelers, adding that it will introduce 28 new aircraft to its fleet between 2014 and 2018.

Among the aircraft will be 10 B777-300ERs, also selected by the magazine readership in the category of Best Aircraft Type, Sun said.

I think these surveys are always "skewed" as, from my experience EVA offer a better overall service than China Airlines, especially for booking as the CI Internet booking system is a nightmare! However, CI does provide a good service & I think Taiwan has two excellent carriers, especially if compared to the local competition.
I also think that Airbus is substantially better than Boeing but, often, this depends on the age of the aircraft. Both CI & BR 747 look & feel very old when I am unfortunate enough to have to travel on one!
