Hello Kitty and Pokemon Airliners

Hello Kitty Airliner - 2nd GenerationEVA Airways is a Taipei based airline, but they have been running a Hello Kitty plane since 2005.

These are photos of the second generation plane.  The inflight photos are from inside the second generation plane enroute from Sapporo to Taiwan Taoyuan.  The theme is cute, but I wouldn't mind flying on the plane and have seen photos of very serious business men on it - after all you have to get to your destination.  Apparently there are plane loads of women of all ages who try to book this plane for the kawaii!

Pokemon Airliners ANA
After the appearance of Pokémon in 1996, All Nippon Airways unveiled the first Pokémon Jets in 1998, timed with the release of Pokémon: The First Movie.  They have had Pokemon airliners ever since.  In 2011, a Boeing 777-300 was painted in a Pokémon livery featuring characters from the Pokémon Black and White videogame.  Again, I wouldn't mind flying this plane too!  Look up Pokemon Jets in Wikipedia - yes it has its own article for those plane spotters!
