Business Class on EVA Air

EVA Air may only be Taiwan’s second-largest airline, but it still flies to more than 50 destinations around the world. Although the airline recently upgraded and renamed its upper class services, one of the outcomes of that move was to eliminate First Class service altogether. The highest level of service now is Business Class on EVA Air, which is now called “Premium Laurel” class.

There are still three levels of service in an EVA Air cabin, although the middle level is no longer Business Class – it’s now EVA’s version of premium economy. So although there may technically no longer be such a thing as First Class on EVA Air, you’ll be getting EVA’s best service when you fly Business Class on EVA Air.

The services described below are all from EVA’s Premium Laurel class, which is its Business Class.
