I still couldn’t believe my eyes when I hold the boarding pass to board the cutest jet ever:
EVA Air Hello Kitty Jet: Royal Laurel Class
At first glance, you can tell this is not a normal flight. Instead of the Eva Airways usual white, green and orange color scheme, this plane has a big Hello Kitty, Kiki&Lala and Melody painted on it.
As soon as I boarded the plane, I was greeted by the flight attendant with pink Hello Kitty apron.
And when I walked to my seat, I was welcomed by the pillow with the cute pillow case!
Even the inflight entertainment welcome screen has Hello Kitty on it.
I slowly settled myself and explored the features and services at the comfort at my seat.
On my right is the inflight entertainment system control and reading light.
Near my arm rest is the seat control. Guess what, I am able to make a flat bed out of it!
Headsets for the Royal Laurel Class.
Space for foot rest.
Some space for my bags and blanket.
Shortly after I sat down, I was being served the welcome drink, with a choice of champagne and juice. I decided to go for pineapple juice cos’ I can have the champagne later with my meal.
More Sanrio characters on the wall.
Comfortable cushion belt.
The is one of the interesting feature I found. A pop-up arm rest.
So if you need more space to move around, you can keep it down. And when you are sleeping and don’t want to fall off the seat, you can press the button and have the arm rest up.

A menu with Hello Kitty on it!
An impression selection of wines and beverages.
The lavatory seems to be the highlight of the Hello Kitty service too.
Hello Kitty exclusive set of foaming hand wash, facial mist, cologne and body moisturiser.
Hello paper cup.
To my great surprise, Hello Kitty toilet paper!
Shortly after the plane took off, when I was busy browsing through the movies selection offered by the inflight entertainment system, the friendly air stewardess served me a small portion of assorted crackers snacks.
And a glass of San Pellegrino sparkling mineral water.
The Hello Kitty coaster is just too cute!
My meal table can be pulled out from the compartment above my arm rest.
What really impressed me is the beautiful table cloth.
For starter, I have Marinated Shrimp, Smoked Trout and Eggplant Stuffed with Minced Chicken Tomato. Paired with a glass of Champagne Collet Rose.
The napkin sleeve with Hello Kitty on it.
A close up for you, in case you missed that Hello Kitty!
Some garlic bread~
For main course, I ordered the Stewed Beef Bourguignon with Mixed Vegetables and Potato Gratin.
Great details, a star shape carrot. Some fruits after the meal :)
Dessert: Raspberry Flavoured Chocolate Terrine with Fig Compote.
The Hello Kitty Jet experience is really one of a kind. The cute-ness in all the details really make all passengers feels like a 8 year old again.
I reached Singapore in the afternoon, feeling rejuvenated and happy. The crew once again thanked all the passangers for flying EVA Air on behalf of Hello Kitty.
I certainly had a great time with Kitty and her lovely friends :)
And it is only natural to bring back the only souvenir I bought in Taipei:
