Fly the friendlier skies

And those would be, um, the skies of Hello Kitty:

Eva Air Hello Kitty jet

This isn’t the first time Taiwan’s EVA Air has paired with Sanrio — they had two such jets in 2005 — but they’ve ordered up new Airbus A330-300s to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and who better to invite to the party?

If travel with Kitty appeals to you, start here.

    Yeah, but flying on one of those cute planes would still require the pre-flight TSA groping. Not sure a cute plane would be enough to withstand that.

    Planes with My Little Pegasi on them, though…I’d have to think very hard before rejecting the idea of flying.

    My wife had to miss her flight at OKC due to TSA assininity. Someone decided she needed to have her hands swabbed which required a female TSA toady to do said swabbing. Well, gee, can’t seem to find one that’s not on break. Too bad, so sad, reschedule your flight for tomorrow, subject. Words do not suffice to express the absolute disgust I hold for the Geheimstatspolizei, err, exCUSE me, Transportation (non)SecuritAH Agency. And every time my job sends me off across the country and I drive, I let the local airline know just how much dinero they didn’t get due to the feckless cost reduction they engaged in by dropkicking their responsibility for flight safety to this USEless federal bureaucracy.
