Daily cleaning, installation of cabin HEPA filters on flights from Reno 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.

Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Pros: "fast take off and good service."
Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."
Cons: "Rude flight attendant. White, old, male, with half shaved head. Uncomfortable seats. Awful food"
Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I am a small person, 5ft 4in 110lbs. The seats are not comfortable and very cramped."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"

Pros: "It was quick but full"
Cons: "The tv broke"
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable ride. Now I know what dinners feel like. Recently flew Delta and didn't notice discomfort like this."
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Cons: "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Cons: "Food need more variety"
Pros: "Gate personnel were great."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. I was put on a standby list for flights to my destination as well as to any cities around it with connecting flights. Every flight was over sold and they were unable to get me on any flights until Tuesday... My original flight was Sunday morning. I was among 26 others on this standby list. United customer service told me to wait at the airport until my flight because they wouldn't be able to help me with a hotel. Less than satisfied and annoyed that I have to miss two days of work on top of having to stay in San Francisco for two nights."
