A few years ago I was able to experience the Hello Kitty flight from Taipei to Tokyo. It was a great experience and I posted about the experience on my main blog. On this post I wanted to show what I experienced pre-boarding. At that time my flights out of Taiwan took me to another section of the airport. The Hello Kitty flight operated by Eva Air was situated on the opposite side where I usually boarded my slight.
It was a huge surprise for me to see that the other section of the boarding gates was dedicated to Hello Kitty! For a weary traveler like me, that was a whole new experience. Usually hallways to boarding gates are normally just gray and boring. The Hello Kitty/Sanrio themed area was a delight to go through since it took my mind off boarding another plane to get to another country for more work.
Here are some photos from that experience -
Even my boarding pass had Hello Kitty all over it. I think aside from Taipei Airport, Narita airport also had sections of it dedicated to Hello Kitty and Sanrio. It's no surprise since the character originated from Japan. I think kids nowadays still know who Hello Kitty is because I have a Hello Kitty hand sanitizer dangling on my bag. It usually catches the attention of kids (haha). I didn't have that many Hello Kitty stuff growing up and going on the Hello Kitty flight was truly an amazing experience for me.
