I must confess that this is my first time travelling with EVA air and the Hello kitty jet. Even though everybody know the Hello Kitty Jet but I always didn’t have the chance to fly with EVA air because of the competitive air fare with Singapore airline, which made me choose our national carrier over EVA air.
However, this time round with the intention to sit inside a themed aircraft, I made an effort to went in their official website to check on their departure time and date.

The flight was a pleasant one, it was not a full flight and I was able to get some rest. The flight attendants are attentive and nice, as for the meal on board was not fantastic, flight entertainment choices were limited too. Nonetheless, it is alright, since it is a short flight. I would like to fly with EVA air again because of the themed airplane. Got some regrets because I forgot to bring my phone to the washroom and everything inside are hello kitty theme from the toilet paper to the amenities and I love it all.
