LAX to TPE in the crowds
Pros: The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably.
Cons: Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning.
Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed.
