We got an upgrade from Economy to Business at Calgary after a bit of holdup at the automatic check-in counter. All smiles after a bit of stress. Quick hop to Vancouver and the bags were tagged directly to Taipei from Calgary, so we could stay inside at the terminal for flight transfer at Vancouver without having to pick up luggage and check-in at security again.
Everything went quickly, little to no line-up everywhere.

Tim really enjoyed his EVA flight. It wasn’t every day we got Royal Laurel Class seats. And yes, the royal treatment started the moment we entered the cabin.
Of course, meals were the highlights. For dinner, the sea bass was done just perfect—tender and buttery. Still thinking about it.

Then we landed in Taipei Taoyuan International Airport at 5:10 am, after a twelve-hour flight. Chinese New Year’s decorations were everywhere.
