Taiwan President Visiting Miami, Flying On China Airlines 777-300ER

President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan has scheduled a visit to Miami at the end of June, according to reports.

It is Tsai’s first visit to the U.S. as president, having just taken office last month. She will also visit Los Angeles and Panama.

The reason for the stop in Miami has not been disclosed.

Tsai will fly to Miami on China Airlines’ new Boeing 777-300ER, which has the range to fly longer distances without refueling stops, the reports state. Previous presidential trips have been on 747s owned by the airline.

China Airlines is Taiwan’s flag carrier, and flies to Miami four times a week with all-cargo service. Dade Aviation has been lobbying the airline to begin passenger service.

Love the interior cabin of China Airlines next generation 777-300ER plane. Simply beautiful. Looks comfy too.

Maybe the President wants to go to Sugar, the Asian style rooftop lounge in BCC.

Even though it isn’t likely, maybe she’s coming to announce service to MIA for China Airlines? 😛

How do those seats recline? Honest question. The “cubicle” looks fixed in place.

Nice cabin! We are planning a trip to China in 2018, the timing is perfect. It would be amazing to fly directly there without any layovers.

There would be a layover in Taiwan. China Airlines is not actually based in the People’s Republic of China, but in Taiwan instead.
