Chinese Airline Celebrates Launch of Japan Flight With Anime Theme
Cosplay, video games and music from "Final Fantasy XIV" entertained passengers on Spring Airlines' launch of its Shanghai-to-Osaka route.
China's Spring Airlines teamed up with Shengda Games for an anime-themed launch flight for its Shanghai-to-Osaka service, reported China Daily on Thursday.
The maiden two-hour voyage to Japan took off from Shanghai on July 18, and Spring made sure passengers were entertained the whole way, with flight-crew members dressed as anime characters and performing in an "anime musical carnival," all set to the soundtrack of the videogame Final Fantasy XIV.
Spring said it hoped to attract younger Chinese flyers with the stunt.
