EVA Air Elite premium Economy ranked among the top-10 “best for economy plus travel for 2015” in a recent evaluation of the world’s leading airlines.This is not new for the Asian airline who SKYTRAX ranked as one of the “World’s Top-10 Best Airlines” and the number one airline for “Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness” in 2015.
AirlineRatings.com editors, who collectively have more than 150 years of airline industry experience and knowledge, are recognised worldwide as experts. The website uses a seven-star system based on strict criteria to rate full-service carrier products. EVA secured its position among the world’s top-10 best in both categories with its product excellence. Generous seat pitch, meals, seat-back in-flight entertainment, positive passenger reviews, amenity kits, provision of blankets and pillows, safety and a history of excellence enabled EVA to rise to the top.
“EVA Air was the first airline with a premium economy product, launching it in December 1992 and steadily improving and upgrading it since then,” said AirlineRatings.com spokesperson Sharon Petersen. “Providing meals on par with those in business class, personalised service, a comfortable, spacious seat and a business class-standard amenity kit and pillow, EVA knows how to do premium economy.”
The ratings site found that EVA Air’s Economy Class reflects an equally high commitment to service and in-flight product quality.
“EVA looks after its economy passengers with an excellent in-flight menu and presentation standard. A wide selection of on-demand in-flight entertainment is available through seat-back screens. The airline is also one of only a handful to keep seat pitch at an average 32-33 inches in economy while most other airlines are dropping it to 31-32. EVA is a true full-service premium airline,” Petersen added.
“Earning high rankings from editors who are as knowledgeable of the airline industry and respected worldwide as the AirlineRatings.com team is truly an honour,” said EVA Air Chairman K.W. Chang. “This recognition tells us that our commitment to quality service and safety is noticed. It also reconfirms our goal to become the world’s best airline.”
