EVA more leg room and your own tv with on demand films.

Last year at this time EVA and Thai were around £400 to £420 LHR/BKK now its 470/480 big jump for one year.

EVA flight times are much better Ive found. Outbound leaves half hour earlier in the evening (21:35) and return leaves at midday (instead of midnight!) and gets back at 19:15 rather than early in the morning leaving you a whole cold wet Sunday before back to work.

My first trip to Thailand was on Thai, the flight was delayed 24 hours. I then switched to Northwest, but the battleaxe flight attendents scared me away. I have used EVA Economy Deluxe since, love it. My next trip is booked with Thai, because it is non stop from LAX to BKK. Will let you know how it went. I still have many frequent flyer miles with EVA, so will be flying with them again also.

Have flown with EVA on their 777's, nice plane, nice staff, food needs a little work and the entertainment needs to be upgraded to have more choices of films! But other than that, for a cheap non stop flight, its pretty damn good!

Simply NO contest

 

Thai used to be a premium carrier but has gone downhill rapidly over the ast 5 years.

 

How ANY carrier can expect you to fly 11 hours with the ONE big TV screen and NO film choice days (as Thai does from LHR) is beyond me.

 

As for EVAs food - remember they have a self service policy - just go to the galley and help yourself to drinks, sandwiches, pot noodles, chocolate etc. If you dont go you dot get!!

 

EVA all the way mate - current price is £305 + tax (£80 I believe) direct return from LHR! Hard to beat if Heathrow is easy access.

Bigboy - I don't mean to be rude but the poster asked for details from LHR. Thai have new stock flying from LAX including personal entertainment so the comparison would be an unfair one.

 

When you "report" do it in a "USA" related thread for which we would be grateful.

 

Thanks

EVA and Thai are direct flights. Iliked Etihad also but fares have jumped up by 20% or more, same price as direct.

I prefer EVA over Thai by a fair margin,the 777s they use are good,no complaints from me.I would actually pay a bit more to fly with EVA rather than Thai(don`t want to have to though!)

i would prefer etihad but their prices seem quite high at the moment compared with eva or thai. if you ask at abu dhabi checkin, you could even get a free upgrade to business so arrive rested in bkk! :D:Flying:

Thai over Eva everytime.When we last flew Eva the food was alright,but nothing special. Hardly any of the radio/music channels worked and those that did were in Taiwanese/Chinese! Food with Thai was superb and i have always found their service to be 2nd to none!

First two trips I flew with Gulf, but they are too expensive as well as being a bunch of crooks (I may post a story on this at some point) for me to consider them for May.

 

I haven't been able to obtain the Eva price quoted by Whitespider from anywhere though.

 

Qatar - c £.430

Thai - c. £460

Eva - c. £465

 

But being a complete Cheap Charlie I'm looking to go Aeroflot via Moscow for 547.10 EUR (c. £370)

When looking for flights, if you are looking just at price and not airline and find a Singapore Air flight.Can you send me a pm before you book, so i can give you my membership number.That way, i gain some air miles and can fly to Thailand more often.And if we meet up i will give you a night on the piss , all for free, and i will pay for a night with a lady ofyour choice!!!!! cheers.

Has to be Eva because of Elite Class with 38" Seat Pitch. Costs more than Economy but only a fraction of what Business Class would cost. Even nicer from Amsterdam because they still have Evergreen Deluxe . :rolleyes:

I simply cannot believe Thai has 4 votes - unless its guys who have never tried the alternatives.

 

Thai used to be a premium carrier but it is now truly awful.

 

ONE big TV screen and no interactive for an 11 hour flight - get real

EVA's economy cabin is better - tilted seats in front of you don't hit you in the face like on the other carriers. Gordon Brown's taxes upped all fares unfortunately.

Get 'em while they're going or tomorrow they'll be gone

Just got an email from WestEast Travel,

 

says they got return flights for £303!

 

http://www.westeasttravel.com/user/strPage.asp?idlink=27

 

I got the same email so I phoned them to look at making a booking as the website says that bookings must be made by 30th April.

 

Cheapest they could actually provide was Thai for £463.10 return or £446 if I booked it online. I asked about Eva £303 + tax and was told it was not possibe to have. I gave a choice of 11 different departure days and they couldn't find anything.

 

A waste of time and effort!

Always travel EVA, and usually in Elite, and now have enough miles for several upgrades. However, I can only go in peak seaon, when the plane is full so can't get upgrades!!

 

Hate it when you get messeages about £300 specials - only to spend valuable time enquirig only to find that (a) they're all gone or (B) they're not available on those dates.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
