The Taiwanese airline that lets you fly Hello Kitty

A quick search for flights last night alerted me to the news that Taiwanese airline EVA Air now have a scheduled flight between Houston and Taipei. More interesting, though, was the method of transport for this particular route… The Boeing 777 in question happens to be Hello Kitty-themed, which is apparently a theme that the airline has been running with for some time!

EVA Air run this particular service from Taipei (the capital of Taiwan) to destinations across Asia, such as Shanghai, Seoul and Hong Kong, and have recently introduced Paris into their list of destinations.

If in the future you choose to fly Hello Kitty, expect what will probably be the pinkest experience of your life. If you imagine the cartoon cat adorned upon every ordinary flying-related object you can think of then you might just be right. Though I bet she’ll appear on things you’d never imagine possible too!

The whole experience sounds sickeningly cute, down to the finest details; we are talking bright pink ticket desks, staff wearing Hello Kitty-themed uniforms (complete with pink bows, naturally), and an array of Hello Kitty soft furnishings. There is even a Hello Kitty sky shop – although I’m not sure if they’d sell you a can of lager…

I’m more of a dog man myself, though if you feel compelled to express your love for Hello Kitty at 30,000 feet then I will not be one to judge. Honest.

My travel experience, limited by my own admission, leaves me with only one place worth talking about – Italy.

My first plane journey was followed by a monumental coach ride through the Italian countryside, before we eventually arrived at a place where they’d literally painted an extra star onto their sign, to make it two stars. The welcome was warm but the furniture was bad, so bad in fact that I broke my bed on the second night – and I was not a promiscuous twelve-year-old by any means.

Perhaps not so big on home furniture (in my hotel at least), Italy made up for this shortcoming with the amazing architecture and food that I experienced while in Tuscany. For example, their towers, though wonky on occasion, often house viewpoints that are worth the 500 steps up on a belly-full of ice cream. And the restaurants in Siena make pizza like you would not believe, I tell you, they would put Papa John’s out of business!
