Coming to an Airport Near You: Hello Kitty Airlines
Is this really another blog post about Hello Kitty?! Yes, and clearly it’s because she’s dominating the world as we speak and I’m here to bring you the latest in coverage. As you may recall from my previous post about Hello Kitty’s Valentine’s Day gig over at Hooter’s, I’m a huge fan of her work — and it looks like she’s at it again, but this time collaborating with Thailand’s Eva Air to launch a Hello Kitty-themed air craft.
So what does a flight on Hello Kitty Airlines get you? With your Hello Kitty-themed boarding pass, you’ll get: Hello Kitty-themed airplane, Hello Kitty-themed check-in kiosks, Hello Kitty-themed in-flight meal set (and dessert), Hello Kitty-themed headrest cover, Hello Kitty-themed toy airplane souvenirs, etc… Perhaps the more important questions is what doesn’t it get you? The only thing that seems to be missing is a life-sized Hello Kitty mascot standing by to welcome you in… Oh, never mind! I guess there already is one!
With three Hello Kitty-themed Airbus A330-300 aircrafts flying between cities such as Taipei, Fukuoka, Marita, Sapporo, Incheon, Hong Kong and Guam, I’ve decided my next vacation will have to take place somewhere in Asia… for the sole purpose of getting the chance of riding on one of these babies and hangin’ out with Ms. Kitty herself. Anyone want to join me?
