Other way around. Chinese carriers are better than China Airlines.I'm considering flying China Airlines. Are there any safety concerns flying this airline? The Sky Bistro Bar and extra cash in my wallet will only do so much cushioning in an unfortunate event.
I suspect they are more 'reliable' then their mainland China counterparts?

But China Airlines seems to have turned the corner of late. Their last major accident was 2002. That was caused by a repair done on the aircraft 22 years earlier.
I'd have no issues flying their new aircraft.
