Hello all my lovely reader!
First of all may you please let me explain about the beginning of this flight report ? ^^'. Is it weird if I would like to say one of my dream mission is I want to fly EVA AIR's sanrio flights? To be honest after I read a lot of EVA kitty jet's reports I really really want to fly with them. And when a chance has come, I had visited Taiwan again as the third time (for my short holiday). I decided to start my first step of my dream by flying EVA AIR's regional airlines which also has one sanrio aircraft as her mother! She is "UNI AIR" with Bad Badtz-Maru Livery! <3 <3
For this trip, I departed from Bangkok Donmueang (DMK) to Taipei (TPE) by Nokscoot (would have no flight report because it was a night flight and I slept -,.-). Return back home from Taichung (RMQ) to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) by Thai Vietjet Air (flight report will be published so soon.) And while I was in Taiwan I took flight from Taipei Songshan (TSA) to Hualien (HUN).
OK if you ready, Let's start! <3
Start in the early morning at Taipei Songshan Airport (TSA). Around 6:30 a.m. I arrived and direct to domestic departure terminal. UNI AIR's check-in at row 1. Guess what I saw at first? Bad Badtz-Maru with gang in front of the desk of UNI AIR check-in counter! OMG they're so cute <3
UNI AIR provides 7 kiosk self check-in machines for passenger. But the last kiosk on the right is limited for passenger on Bad Badtz-Maru flights only (because of different boarding pass). It been hiding by a sign which I don't know. But when I informed a ground staff I am going to Hualien, she immediately brought me to this special kiosk and assisted me to check-in my flight. She was so helpful. Thank you <3
Can somebody knows chinese translate for me what does the sign said please?
The special boarding pass made me so crazy!! OMG I really love it!! <3 <3
Here are some information about my flight today;-

Skip to boarding gate. The boarding pass shown as gate number 12 which is bus gate. But later I found it been changed to 13 (bus gate also). From the screen I found some flights has been cancelled due to weather condition. I only pray for my flight T^T Please don't break my dream.
Let's gooooo, get on PAX bus! <3 <3 due to only few booking (estimate from what I saw may be 15-20 persons). So only 1 PAX bus is enough.
When the bus approaching to the aircraft, my heart almost fall to pieces. The cute plane I wish I could fly has been changed to simple livery TT^TT She is B-17005 (The sanrio's one is B-17001)
This is the livery I expect I will fly today… OMG I was sad…
But I still have luck. When I get on the plane, it was a Bad Badtz-Maru flight as usual! I don't care about the livery anymore. Since there is sanrio concept inside, that makes me happy already <3 Woohoo~
My seat today. I select 8A (window seat) because it was my first time on ATR model so I wanna see how its propeller working from my seat.
Let's see those super cute headrest covers. There are 2 different expressions.
Seat pocket contains airline's magazine and safety instructions card. And ofcourse, also in Bad Badtz-Maru character.
And air sickness bag (from EVA AIR) is also in Bad Badtz-Maru character.
Boarding completed, cabin crew demonstrates safety instruction.
Taking off in the bad weather condition of Taipei… luckily my flight hasn't been cancelled or delayed.
To be honest I like ATR since the first time. When the aircraft is cruising on to the right altitude, I found the weather was so clear!
After seat belt sign has been turned off, cabin crews start serving. For this short haul domestic flight they only provide beverage service. I'm not sure how many choices do they offer. But as far as I know are water and fruit juice.
I order water because I want a cute Bad Badtz-Maru's paper cup. Served with UNI AIR refreshing towel in Bad Badtz-Maru chatacter. see how adorable they are (espacially for whoever loves sanrio) <3
The Magazine onboard.
Some details of Bad Badtz-Maru and EVA AIR sanrio's aircraft liveries family. My next mission will be Gudetama (Comfort flight) on Taipei to Sendai route. And Little Twin Stars (Shining star) from Taipei to Singapore.
Everything is Bad Badtz-Maru. I believe who loves it would be very happy to fly on this flight. And after I finished taking this photo, cabin crew starts trashing. and then seat belt sign is on for arrival…
Oh! I have asked for playing cards onboard from cabin crew. But she informed me no cards prepared for domestic flights. It provided on international routes only. If my lovely ready fly on EVA AIR kitty jets let's try to ask for it :)
Decending to Hualien Airport. Has anyone see me? It's my shadow on the road ^^
Landing safety. Thank you Mr. (or Mrs. ?) B-17005 for carrying me on this cute flight. Even you are not sanrio livery as I expected (TT^TT) but you gave me a very impress experience on the first ATR. Thank you and I'm sure I'll miss you whenever I have chance on ATR again. <3
My personal ranking
10.0 for Cabin = Cabin looks new, clean, and fresh even on the day I flew the aircraft is 6 years old already.
9.0 for Cabin crew = Good services but sometimes one of them seem sleepy... may be too early morning flight. (I also sleepy)
6.0 for Entertainment/Wifi = No entertainment, no wifi. 5.0 should be an average... but I give 6.0 because the catoon concept onboard makes me enjoyable. (Is this also an entertainment? I don't know)
5.0 for Meal/Catering = average score because only beverage service (due to short haul flight)
10.0 for Efficiency = Nothing to complain or unpleasant, the airport is small but everything is convenience.
