Frequent flyers Taipei-Paris, need advice

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

fumarole, and shidoa,
I give up. I don't know why the messages stay in the outbox instead of sending. However, I was making a mistake. It was fumarole who asked the question about how I got my ticket, not shidoa. Sorry about that.

"I got my tickets through Eagle Travel in TaiChung. Steven Lai, eaglestv@mail.1b.hinet.net Tel: 0914-246-708 I had used this agent a couple of years ago when I went home to see my mom, and he found a very good deal for me. I was hoping for the same this time - no real deal, but cheaper than I thought it might be. The EVA website prices were around the same price (a bit more), and the cheap ticket sites did not really have better prices - some were much more expensive. I thought once when I first started searching that I saw a $30-something thousand ticket, but later couldn't find it.

Round trip to Paris - EVA $49,500. I know it's not the cheapest fare, but rather than making stops or flying some scary-sounding airline, I thought it would be worth it. And there's shorter flying time.

Actually, there is nothing really "private" about this message - I guess it's habit. I don't like to post everything for public consumption. :-)

I usually fly Eva from around $39K - $46K and book myself through the website. The Eva flight schedule is particularly nice, as it leaves Taipei around midnight and arrives Paris around 6am which can be financially beneficial as the flight is not arriving in Paris at night with booking directly into a hotel without spending the day there first.

During different travel periods or airlines specials, it's sometimes find it cheaper to get a flight to/from HK first, the fly Cathay Pacific to/from Paris.

I recently flew Taipei Paris round-trip on Eva It is a great flight schedule. The plane leaves Taipei midnight and arrives in Paris at 7 AM, ready to start the day. The return flight leaves Paris at about noon and arrives in tpe around 7 AM, again ready to start the day.

Currently, Chinese owned airlines have flights as cheap as US$630. Next cheapest is Korean, Emirates, and then Eva direct for US$1063.

Thanks, nice spot. Never flown Eva before, might be taking them now.
It's raining again here.

And you'll be flying in the cleanest airline on the planet, according to some recent poll. So, don't spill your yoghurt. :wink:

I like the Eva non-stop flight to Paris. It leaves at midnight in Taipei and arrives at 7 a.m. in Paris.

And the return flight arrives at 7 am in Taipei so you can even go to work the same day if you must.

Well I don't see the need to go straight from plane to work :wink:, but we are booked to Paris now. It'll be my first time flying Eva, something different to look forward to, even if it's still just a long-ass flight in a metal tube.
