Flying the Hello Kitty skies (photo)

Almost as much fun as the "Unicorn Chaser" plane Boing Boing named for Virgin America airlines! A passenger looks out of an Airbus A330-300 aircraft of Taiwan's Eva Airlines, decorated with Hello Kitty motifs, in Taoyuan International Airport, northern Taiwan, April 30, 2012. Taiwan's second-largest carrier, Eva Airlines, and Japan's comic company, Sanrio, which owns the Hello Kitty brand, collaborated on the second generation Hello Kitty-themed aircraft which was launched on October 2011. There are currently three Hello Kitty-themed Airbus A330-300 aircrafts flying between cities such as Taipei, Fukuoka, Narita, Sapporo, Incheon, Hong Kong and Guam. More photos here, and we've previously blogged about the earlier generation of the Hello Kitty planes on Eva. (REUTERS/Pichi Chuang)


  1. The Hello Kitty lounge at the Taipei airport is paradise for Sanrio fans and one of the few places you can lie down without being asked to sit up by airport staff.

  2. I really badly want the art repositioned so that the eyes line up with the windows so that when folks open and close their shades it changes teh Kitty’s disposition!

    1. Looking at the front of that plane, I find myself singing, ♫ I’ve been through the desert on a cat with no mouth.
