Of course, equipment swaps can (and do) happen. Plan accordingly!
Hello Kitty has appeared on five of EVA Air’s Airbus A330 fleet so far, and the president of EVA Air has been threatening to paint a 777-300ER for sometime. Looks like he’s making good on the promise.
What exactly the Hello Kitty 777-300ER will look like… that’s a good question. For now, cast your eyes at http://evakitty.evaair.com/en to see what EVA Air and Kitty-Chan have been up to so far…
Of course, those who want to avoid Hello Kitty… you now know when to travel… 😉 I’ll be keeping an eye on this cute jet as it comes along…
But this gives me the excuse to run this photo… again.
