Daily cleaning, installation of cabin HEPA filters on flights from Chattanooga to Taiwan
Taiwan has begun to reopen its borders to foreign nationals, provided they are traveling for reasons other than study, tourism or to visit friends. All visa waivers have been suspended, so travelers must apply for a special entry permit with a Taiwan representative office overseas before traveling.
Travelers who already hold a valid Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) or Alien Permanent Resident Certificate (APRC) do not require a visa to enter Taiwan.
Starting from December 1, until February 28, all travelers, including transit passengers, regardless of nationality and travel purpose must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure to Taiwan.
Foreign nationals must have a medical certificate in English with a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure to Taiwan.
Travelers must complete and submit a "Quarantine System for Entry Form" before departure.
The following visitors may be exempted from negative COVID-19 test: personnel on diplomatic or official business, migrant workers, students, those coming to Taiwan for emergency situations, and crewmembers on vessels arriving in Taiwan.
Passengers arriving from the Philippines are subject to medical screening on arrival.
Travelers are subject to a 14-day home quarantine.
From December 23, travelers arriving in Taiwan from the UK must now quarantine in group quarantine facilities for 14 days after entry, and be tested for COVID-19 before completing the quarantine period. Flights to and from the UK are to be reduced by half, effective immediately.
From November 9, all travelers arriving into Taiwan must declare if they have had COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days. If they report symptoms, they are subject to PCR test at the airport or a hospital immediately upon arrival. If they test negative, they must have a second test after 24 hours. They are subject to quarantine at a designated quarantine facility while awaiting for both results. If they receive two negative results, they will be able to leave the quarantine facility and carry out the 14-day self-isolation at home or in a designated quarantine hotel. A positive test will mean hospitalization.
During the quarantine period, the individual is to stay home (or at the designated location) and may not use public transportation or leave Taiwan. Travelers may be asked to install a local SIM card if they do not already have one. Mobile phone location monitoring will be used as part of the quarantine management process by local authorities. Short-term business travelers may apply for a shortened period of home quarantine.
Foreign passengers, including people from Hong Kong and Macau, are now allowed to transit through Taoyuan International Airport. Holders of People’s Republic of China (PRC) passports will not be permitted to transit in Taiwan. Those transiting will need to board connecting flights of the same airline company they fly in on. Transits must last less than 8 hours. Transit passengers who need to wait for more than one hour will remain separate from other passengers and stay in a separate area.

Pros: "Excellent service and food!"
Cons: "flew from seattle on delta. i paid for korean air but delta put me on delta going from boston to seoul. very disappointed with the experience going to seoul."
Pros: "Sat on the runway for 40 mins with no explanation"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "all services"

Pros: "Great flight crew, speedy and efficient departure procedure"
Pros: "Nothing at all. It was hell and you should be ashamec ofhiw you treated me."

Cons: "식사가 맛과질이 떨어진다 정성이없이.."
Pros: "I like the Korean Bibimpap on the plane, taste was good."
Cons: "Old style business seating, quite uncomfortable, not a full recline, very uncomfortable when fully reclined compared to other business planes, TV was small, not good quality, selection of movies was only ok, not great, service was ok, not great, they cater more to Korean customers then other guests, if you are on the upper deck de-planning is difficult and awkward as you have to go through the economy section and staff doesn't keep them seated, so no extra bonus for business in de-planing. washroom items not replaced (toothbrush / mouthwash), overall very average"
Pros: "attentiveness of the crew to people of multiple nationalities."
Pros: "Korean Air staff was very nice and helped me as a disabled passenger."

Pros: "Cleanliness and professional crew."
Pros: "Food and service was exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding was a joke. They were very sure to make you feel inferior to business & first class. And then the boarding was a cluster. A Korean culture thing I guess."
Pros: "I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels."
Cons: "The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well"

Cons: "Food select"
Pros: "Cabin crew's service quality & attitude"
Cons: "delayed flight for 30 min due to the connection at the gate of ICN."

Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."

Pros: "The service and the entertainment"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seat (didn't even lean back, due to positioned in front of the wall).m"

Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "We eventually left."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."

Cons: "I paid for a preferred seat and the passenger seated next to me was so large that he could not buckle his seatbelt and totally squished me into the window. I called the stewarddess over and I was haphazardly moved to an aisle seat next to a smaller passenger. I was then bumped into repeatedly by"
Pros: "787 is modern and clean. Service was excellent. Seating layout is good."
Cons: "Food was good but not great. Gogo-in-flight Internet system is awful."
Pros: "Late taking off. Pretty much on time for arrival. The pilots made up an hour."
Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"

Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Nice crew, plane clean."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Pros: "I appreciated the quality of our seats and amenities as well as the choices for TV."
Cons: "I was unable to enjoy any of this; however, because a 6 year old talked loudly to himself the entire overnight flight while kicking the back of my seat. The crew and his parents said nothing. My boyfriend and I then had to spend our first day in Paris sleeping."
Cons: "Crew was incredibly unfriendly."
Pros: "Nice seats. Comfortable. Fast, efficient boarding, but it was a small plane and not nearly full, although full enough that I couldn't have a seat next to my husband."
Cons: "They split up my husband and I. One screen for every 4 rows of seats playing one in-flight movie. Apparently there was WiFi that you could download an app for and watch other stuff, but no good selection at all, and since I had no way to charge my phone, it didn't seem a great idea to waste the battery. Only food for over 4 hours of sitting on the runway and flight was a bag of mini pretzels."
Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."

Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, the boarding was super quick and the whole flight was great and comfortable. Friendly crew members. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I paid for a more comfortable seat around US200 (16L) the day prior the flight, main cabin window seat with more space.They changed planes I guess and row 16 was gone so the assigned me another one on main cabin aswell with more space (15J) but an aisle, which I hate and that was the reason why I paid for a window seat in the first place. No effort to get me a window seat within main cabin when I claimed, nor reasonable explanation on why they did the changed."
Pros: "Very clean. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Paid extra for six inches of leg room but the seats recline 2 inches. Not comfortable. TV touch screen did not work."
Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"
Cons: "We didnt managed to get on that flight due to the delay from precious flight from philadelphia"
Pros: "Nothing special, but no problems. I did pay for the fruit and cheese plate, which I think is a good deal for the price. Brie is better than you'd expect on a plane! Totally recommend it."
Pros: "This wasn't a British Airlines flight! We ended up being on a crappy, ancient American Airlines flight instead of the BA flight we had booked. It is very duplicitous to purchase a ticket for an airline with a great reputation and end up on a genuinely lousy flight on a totally different airline (especially one like American, that I would never book!)."
Cons: "American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again."
Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."
Cons: "Food not so great"
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and had good foot space."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew gave no information that we weee diverted to SJC instead of SFO. Very poor communication and. It much of an apology. Seems to me the plane was under weight on fuel."
Cons: "The bag hanging down from the bottom of the seat in front of me."
Cons: "The plane had mechanical problems and was rescheduled to a different flight"
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Pros: "The crew, boarding went smooth"
Cons: "The seats too close ,I drop one paper I could hardly bend over I am 5ft tall"
Pros: "AA is stepping there game up when it comes to entertainment. Newer planes have power surges, consistent wifi, and screens in the back of each seat loaded with games and movies."
Cons: "My flight was delayed prolonging my trip. Customer service was terrible. And, when I got to my final destination my checked luggage wasn't there. It took them over 24 hours to locate and return my luggage."
Pros: "This was the roughest flight I have ever been on, it Was so awful I opted for greyhound going home also being made to check my carry on bag was not cool."
Cons: "The constant turbulence ,having to check carry on bag"
