This Airline Is Hosting a Hello Kitty-themed Flight to Nowhere - and It Includes a Michelin-star Meal

What do tires have to do with meals?

You've had airline food, right?

What we really need right now is people getting on a plane for no farking good reason.

I know Japan has a thing with KFC and Christmas, is there a Taiwan thing with Father's Day and Hello Kitty that I missed?

Michelin wanted people to drive around so they started publishing a guide for car service stations, maps, maintenance instructions, etc. and they eventually did restaurant reviews. For some reason they became the gold farking standard in restaurant reviews.

FTA: On Monday, EVA Air announced it will be honoring Father's Day in Taiwan (celebrated on Aug. 8) by selling tickets to a flight to nowhere. The plane, decorated in Hello Kitty livery, will take off from Taipei Taoyuan Airport and will land several hours later back at the same location.


It's like the old joke...Father's Day - The most confusing day in Taipei.

A flight to nowhere.  Who the hell would buy a ticket for that?

Maybe this guy?

Stigginit to the Reds?

/  All I know is what I read in the papers.  I thought Hello Kitty was primarily Japanese (if it's not considered global) but maybe there's a Daddy/Daughter thing in the Taiwanese culture?

Fark it, I'm IN.
I'll die on a Hello Kitty plane.
IDGAF, this is better than most options.

I don't know about Fathers Day but when I was in Kaohsiung the hotel had a Hello Kitty themed room (that was pretty expensive) which came with the use of a Hello Kitty rental car.

I guess I don't understand why this is special. We flew EVA Air last year and everything was Hello Kitty, right down to our boarding passes. And almost $300 for a business class seat on a flight that goes nowhere? Their business class is okay, but compared to other international carriers it's nothing spectacular.

Plus last year I didn't have to worry about anybody in the cabin coughing and infecting my husband or me with a deadly plague, so there's that. This whole idea is so stupid.

EVA?

<checks link>

EVA.  They've been all-in on Hello Kitty for years.  There's this beyond strange Hello Kitty shop / gate area in the terminal in Taoyuan airport.   So this doesn't surprise me at all.  My bet is they'll deliver a good product for this flight.  i think their normal business class service from LA to Taipei is excellent.  While the hard product (seats / infotainment / etc.) is fairly generic, their flight crews are some of the best in the industry.

On one flight with them we pushed off from the gate at LAX 16 minutes late, and the pursuer came through the business class cabin and personally apologized to every passenger.   If I were in Taiwan right now I might consider this flight.

Yeah, I've seen them several times at various airports. When we lived in Hong Kong, our kids kept asking to go to Taiwan for one of our holidays just so they could take one of the Hello Kitty aircraft.

/I still haven't told them about the JAL Minions ones. I'd never hear the end of it.

As a Sanrio fan before birth (room was decorated before my arrival) I would do this in a heartbeat. Damn Covid 🥺🥺🥺 I prefer to live so I can continue to love all things Sanrio for much much longer.

A flight of beers?  Or, like, kittens to eat?  I refuse to read TFA so this is my stance.

I can't think of a better way to spend a day than to go through all of the hassle and discomfort of a commercial flight without the benefit of getting to another destination.

This might be worth looking into. If the card from my kid said "Happy Fathers Day, Your getting laid on a Hello Kitty flight." And even them I might wait till next year to avoid the covid. Unless I get to pick my "stewardess" then they might have something worth looking into.
