The airline teamed up with Sanrio, the agent of the cartoon cat, to dress up a number of its A330s in Hello Kitty motifs in 2011 (see here), and there are currently five of these aircraft, including Magic jet, Clouds jet, Music jet, World jet and Apple jet. These planes have taken the famed feline star on tour to Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, China and Guam, and on the new B777, she is set to take the City of Angels by storm next month. Europe is also on her agenda.
Though livery painting and cabin interior construction are still in progress with the catty B777, the airline has confirmed with Business Traveller that it will feature similar themed amenities such as Hello Kitty-branded soap and lotion (pictured above). Cabin crew will also wear Hello Kitty aprons when serving passengers (pictured top).
Further updates will reported once the airline unveils its product.
