Giveaway: EVA Air 777 Hello Kitty Shining Star Jet Model & MicroUSB Drive

I’ve written a bunch over the last couple of days about the EVA Air Hello Kitty program. The Star Alliance airline doesn’t just paint planes in Hello Kitty livery, they introduce service elements and minor details throughout the passenger experience that reflect the Hello Kitty concept.

As a general matter I prefer to give away anything I receive from travel providers, and I try my best to keep my home uncluttered.

Since I attended the launch event for EVA Air’s new Taipei – Houston service, operated by a brand new Hello Kitty 777 ‘Shining Star’ jet, I came home with a couple of items of swag. And I’m going to give them away here.

  1. No. But I made the mistake of showing my 10 y/o your Hello Kitty posts and now she thinks it is the end of the world as we know if I do not take her on a Hello Kitty trip. Gol-dang-it, Gary.

  2. My 8yr old daughter comes with me for most of what she calls ‘shenanigans’ (AKA Manufactured spending), she opens up all the GC packaging for me, and she adores Hello Kitty. So a premium redemption for this flight for the 2 of us is well overdue!

  3. My daughter in law to be would love me forever if I could give her some Hello Kitty stuff.

  4. I would be very tempted! Probably not, because my DH wouldn’t be into it, but DD15 and I definitely would if we could get away with it.

  5. I love the hello kitty plane! I think I would go out of my way to fly with hello kitty. And my kids would love it too!

  6. I absolutely would if I was traveling with my 3 daughters! They would be in heaven.

  7. I wouldn’t for myself but I definitely would for my 18-year old daughter who suddenly turns 9 again over Hello Kitty! Or, as she called it when she was 9, “Kitty Hello”.

  8. Totally would for our two little angels. They love hello kitty and they can’t wait for the theme park that opening soon

  9. I flew the kitty jet kix-tpe a few years ago. Nice to see a plane full of businessmen enjoying the super cuteness. Would go out of my way to take my 4 year old…or maybe my boss.

  10. Definitely would consider the EVA Hello Kitty option as it is better than some of the other premium products out there 🙂

  11. Yes I would. Makes more sense than paying all in cash. The Hello Kitty product as described is too alluring to pass up on.

  12. “Would you go out of your way to redeem miles to fly on Star Alliance airline EVA Air’s Hello Kitty flights?”
    Only if my GF was coming with me… she STILL loves Hello Kitty.

  13. Sure would! It’s an interesting plane to fly on and I’m actually heading to Taiwan in January. I think it would be a cool thing to try out!

  14. Absolutely — have looked more than once at how I could get to SIN via Hello Kitty flights.

  15. I’ve already flown on a hello kitty flight and it was nothing special so I wouldn’t go out of my way to do it again.

  16. We’ve flown EVA twice, and I was really a bit disappointed last time not to get the Hello Kitty jet, so…yes.

  17. Yes I would go out of my way just to fly on the new Hello Kitty Jet. I have never flown EVA and have been wanting to fly them. It would be a great opportunity to fly EVA on their new jet.
