She’s the Japanese cartoon character found on everything from pencil cases and toothbrushes to T-shirts and (believe it or not) vacuum cleaners - now Hello Kitty is reaching new heights: her own fleet of planes.
Taiwanese airline Eva has launched three Kitty-themed planes which feature the Hello Kitty motif not just on the outside, but on everything from the boarding cards to Kitty-shaped check-in counters.
Once onboard, passengers will lay their heads on Hello Kitty headrest covers, drink from Hello Kitty cups and enjoy Hello Kitty-inspired meals, including Kitty-shaped pasta and sweets.
No less than 100 items inspired by the bow-wearing white cat feature on the flight - from soap dispensers to aprons worn by the air hostesses.
Amazingly, it’s not the oddest example of Kitty mania - how about the Kitty diamond jewellery, the Hello Kitty spa in Dubai, or the Kitty-themed maternity hospital in Taiwan? - Daily Mail
