It seems to me that emergency exit seats for jetstar have the same leg room as others, except for 1st row A, B and C. There is no barrier infront, so leg room is generous. And there's an LCD TV in front but no movies, only Jetstar Logo.

However, the toilet is right in front, be prepared to see some pple standing and chatting in front of you while waiting for toilet during flight.

Btw did you ask for that seat? So good to have longer leg room...

On their 1st day of flight to taipei, I can't change seats, their excuse is that all the seats are already pre-allocated.

I booked online. If i am not wrong, those book thru' phone have to pay double adminstration fees.

All taxes are included for taipei. And Jetstar is using terminal 1 in taipei, quite an old and small terminal as compared to their sparkling new terminal 2.

I was recommended Keyman's hotel by Naomi7115 here, and I must say, good choice. I can't compare with Rainbow since I have never been there, but if I were to go back again, I would probably still choose keyman. Excellent location - just opposite the Taipei Railway, MRT, and bus stations. All there. Big shopping mall, shops, and plenty of eateries, really plenty. They charged me NT1660 per nite for a single room.
