Sleepwear with Comfort and Style
EVA chose Jason Wu to create its 2019 sleepwear for passengers flying long-haul in Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Classes. Recognized for designing Michelle Obama’s dresses for both of her husband’s presidential inaugurations, Wu conceived EVA’s PJs for comfort and style. This is the first time Wu has worked with an airline.
Aristocratic Dining, Inspired Pastries
Tan-style cuisine Master Chef Huang Ching-biao created a special menu for selected EVA routes, using ancient recipes in the aristocratic cuisine’s cooking style made popular in royal courts and enjoyed over the centuries by prime ministers and world leaders. Prepared with slow, painstaking, traditional cooking techniques and nothing but the best ingredients, the inflight dining experience begins with a pork shoulder slice wrapped with cucumber and Thai-style shrimp followed by golden chicken soup with seafood in a rich, golden broth. The main course is braised abalone in oyster sauce served with stir-fried rice with olive caramel. Dessert is an elegant concoction of Tan’s mashed taro and sweet potato in a water chestnut sauce. EVA serves the Tan-style cuisine to Royal Laurel Class passengers on flights from Taipei to Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.
Acclaimed Italian pastry chef Andrea Bonaffini of the popular Taipei patisserie Yellow Lemon created four seasonal desserts exclusively for EVA Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Classes passengers. Especially for the spring menu, EVA is offering an inventive delight named “Bianca,” followed in summer with “Cocco Mango” and in autumn with “Nocciola.” During the winter months, the sweet-tooth indulgence was “Sexy Lady,” an irresistibly delicious pastry with rose petals, slightly tart and refreshing raspberries, lychee and chocolate. These diet-ending treats are available to Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Classes passengers flying from Taipei to Brisbane, Paris and Vienna as menus change seasonally.
Refreshing and Delicious
Especially for Royal Laurel/ Premium Laurel/Business Class passengers, EVA is serving a delightful boarding refreshment, a gourmet tidbit with the first coffee and tea service and an after-dinner beverage befitting a connoisseur’s palate. As passengers settle into their seats, EVA offers cold-pressed mango with a blend of fruit juices made from Taiwan’s exceptionally flavorful Irwin mangoes, pleasingly tart and aromatic passion fruit, tangy oranges and garden-fresh carrots.
On long-haul flights, EVA presents delightful morsels from French boutique chocolatier Eclat de Valrhona with its first coffee and tea service in both Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Classes. The rich, dark artisanal chocolates, made from beans grown on the globally acclaimed chocolatier’s own carefully cultivated plantations, are 61% premium cocoa.
After dinner with coffee and tea service, EVA pours Crème Caramel Tea from Singapore’s luxurious TWG. Starting with delicate red tea leaves from South Africa, TWG added seductively sweet French spices to create a satisfying drink that passengers can sip and enjoy as a dessert.
Exclusive Amenity Kits
EVA worked with luxury brands Rimowa and Ferragamo to create 2019 amenity kits for Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel passengers on long-haul flights. Those departing from Taiwan receive kits in RIMOWA’s popular “Carmona Red.” Contents include a color-coordinated eye mask, cozy socks, a hairbrush, a microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses and screens on personal devices, earplugs, a toothbrush and toothpaste and skincare essentials from CLARINS.
Returning to Taipei, EVA is giving Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel passengers exclusive amenity kits by fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo. Inspired by ancient Taiwanese majolica tiles, the case is a harmonious blend of contemporary fashion and Taiwanese culture stocked with Salvatore Ferragamo lotion, hand cream and lip balm elegantly scented with the brand’s recently released Bianco di Carrara fragrance.
