It was really fortunate for us to be able to upgrade from Elite to Royal Laurel class for our Taipei to Los Angeles flight, even though I called almost the last minute. It used to be very difficult to get the upgrade before unless you reserve your upgrade like months ahead.
I’ve accumulated enough miles for my upgrade. It needs 35,000 miles to upgrade from Elite to Royal Laurel from TPE to LAX. Almost all of my transpacific flights were with EVA Air and I paid slightly more expensive economy class price ticket so I would be able to collect the full mileage for my trip. Normally, I would upgrade the shorter leg which is from Taipei to Kuala Lumpur from Economy to Premium Laurel class using 15,000 miles each way but this time I had saved up to experience the Royal Laurel class.
This was an amazing experience. After travelling in Royal Laurel class, I don’t think I can ever go back to the Economy or Elite class anymore. It was very comfortable and relaxing. The almost eleven hours flight passed by too quickly and I wished it could have been a longer flight. The almost 2-meter-long flat bed seat allows me to sleep for 5 hours straight. It would have been even better if they lower the cabin temperature a little more, as I felt slightly warmer than I like.
I didn’t enjoy the on flight cuisine as much as I would. Firstly because I was too excited and I wasn’t that hungry. One thing that I regretted was I didn’t see their ‘Star’ Menu which has the Din Tai Fung Spicy Wonton Dumplings. I only saw it when I was editing my videos. Oh, well. Instead I ordered their Western Cuisine for supper which I didn’t like at all. For breakfast, it was better, as I pre-ordered the Chicken Herbal Soup Noodle. Yet, I wasn’t able to finish most of it because I wasn’t hungry.
Here is a video I put together for our first trip on Royal Laurel class. I hope you will enjoy it.
