EVA Air Royal Laurel Business Class Seattle-Taipei – Flight Review

Arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, I made my way to the Royal Laurel business class counter. A friendly agent quickly printed my boarding pass and checked one of my bags on to tonight’s destination: Taipei, Taiwan.

With a scheduled departure at 2 a.m., security was deserted and the terminal was empty, except for the handful of other passengers aboard EVA flight 25 milling about.

EVA does not have a dedicated lounge at Seattle, instead it uses British Airways’. The airline insisted I use the space normally reserved for passengers flying in first class on BA. With only two other people in the private mini-lounge, one could have heard a pin drop. While it offered a small selection of beverages and food, there was also easy access to the main lounge with its wider variety of food, drink, and amenities.



Boarding began promptly at 1:10 a.m. at gate S15 in the B satellite terminal. Royal Laurel passengers were invited to board after those needing extra time, and I quickly made my way on board.

My seat, 8A, was located in the aft business class cabin, right behind the main entry door. Waiting at the seat were a number of items including the usual fare of bottled water, pillow, mattress cover/duvet, and a set of noise cancelling headphones. Also awaiting were a nice pair of slippers and a set of pajamas – a welcome touch for the long flight.

A flight attendant came by not long after I settled in to take a preflight drink order – I chose apple juice – then returned later to gather meal and beverage selections. The carrier’s famous Rimowa amenity kits, featuring skin care products from Harnn, were also provided.
