Confession (okay, I'm not sure this is actually much of a confession, as it's likely quite obvious): I'm a tween Asian girl at heart. At least I like most of the same things they do, including Hello Kitty. So there's nothing quite like the Hello Kitty…

It looks like the EVA Air 777-300ER flight this past Friday morning from Los Angeles to Taipei had quite a bit of excitement, and it wasn't the pilots' fault... at least not initially. The weather in Los Angeles wasn't good, and the 777 was departing…

EVA Air Becomes The 8th Skytrax 5-Star Airline

Skytrax is the closest thing we have to an "official" airline ranking system, and it's something some airlines take very seriously. Airlines get "star" ratings, so I guess it's not surprising airlines want to be rated 5-star, because it's something great…
