Eva Air Hello Kitty-themed livery
AIRCRAFT A330, B777

TAM Disney-themed livery
INTRODUCED February 2016
INFO For passengers that flew with Brazilian carrier TAM to Orlando earlier this year, the Disney experience began on the plane. Along with a colourful livery featuring classic Disney characters such as Mickey, Minnie and Donald, the in-flight experience was also adapted to include Mickey mouse-shaped food and cabin crew wearing Minnie mouse headbands and gloves. Unfortunately, the aircraft is no longer available, ever since TAM merged with LAN to form LATAM.
