CHINA  AIRLINES:  ENJOYABLE  JOURNEY  BEGINS  IN  COMFORTABLE  LOUNGE

MANILA, April 6, 2005 (STAR) By Millet M. Mananquil - We discovered something wonderful on our way from Manila to Los Angeles via China Airlines. Aside from good food (that means mouth-watering Chinese cuisine) and a caring kind of service (nothing matches Asian hospitality), China Airlines provided a sleek and comfortable setting to relax in Taipei while waiting for our Taipei-Los Angeles flight.

What a serene and soothing China Airlines lounge designed in a modern style! Newly revamped, the Dynasty Lounges (as they are called worldwide) offer a cook-to-order noodle bar, a buffet of delicious comfort foods and drinks, a wide selection of news and entertainment offerings on a 42-inch plasma monitor, plush seats, high-speed broadband Internet area with 12" PCs, and shelves of choice glossy magazines and international newspapers.

Best of all, we were able to freshen up in deluxe shower/dressing rooms with immaculate white towels and our fave brands of toiletries, making us feel truly refreshed for the trans-Pacific flight.

"Designed in contemporary lines, the Dynasty Lounge at CKS Airport features soft tones and an intelligent spatial design to create a tranquil environment for rest," explains Len Rivera, China Airlines-Philippines’ amiable manager.

China Airlines, Taiwan’s largest and one of Asia’s leading airlines, serves 47 destinations in 21 countries worldwide. A fleet of all-new Airbus A330-300 aircraft for its Asian destinations features the latest in sleek cabin designs. Dynasty Supreme Class offers adjustable, multi-function electronic seats with a stylish shell shape. Economy Class is outfitted with the world’s first automatically adjustable air-seat cushions. The in-flight entertainment system offers a variety of movies, music and video games. "You can even create your own music playlist," says Rivera.

Reaping awards in 2003 for its Business Class service, China Airlines earned the new Excellent Service Award last year for the professionalism, warmth and friendliness of its cabin crews.

Another pleasant treat is the new in-flight menu specially created from the top 10 healthful ingredients as recommended by Time magazine.
