 SEATTLE, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- EVA Airways of Taiwan today took


delivery of the first of eight Boeing 747-400s it has on order, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group announced. A second 747 will be turned over to the 15-month-old carrier on Nov. 10.
 At planeside ceremonies, Evergreen Group Chairman Y.F. Chang said: "Our passengers will enjoy the most trendy in-flight facilities in our innovative four-class 747-400. Boeing has worked closely with us to create the right jetliner to meet our needs in the competitive Asia/Pacific travel market."
 EVA will begin daily nonstop service between Taipei and Los Angeles on Dec. 12.
 Powered by General Electric CF6-80C2 engines, EVA's 747-400s will seat 358 passengers in a four-class configuration: super first, super deluxe, economy deluxe and economy. Unique to the airline is the wider 38-inch pitch (fore-and-aft distance between seats) in the "economy deluxe" class which offers individual passengers business-class comfort at economy prices.
 The economy deluxe class has eight seats in each row in a 2-4-2 layout instead of the 3-4-3 layout in conventional economy class. Seats in this special section are fitted with seat-back video monitors.
 The EVA Airways 747-400s also are equipped with a state-of-the-art satellite telecommunication system through which passengers in any class may place in-flight telephone calls throughout the world.
 A subsidiary of Taiwan's Evergreen Group, the world's largest container shipping line, EVA began service in July 1991. The airline currently operates five Boeing 767-300ERs to destinations including Vienna, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Manila and Kaohsiung (Taiwan).
