Before Wednesday, I did not know what Hello Kitty was. Actually, I’m still exactly sure what the whole thing is about.

But I know it’s a big deal. I know this because Eva Air brought a Hello Kitty-themed Boeing 777 to Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday. And it was pandemonium. Many fans and media were present for the big party.

Eva, Taiwan’s national carrier, has actually had Hello Kitty jets for a long time. But I believe this is the first time one has crossed the Pacific Ocean to the United States. It looks like the plane will fly between Los Angeles and Taipei three times per week for a while.

Read on for some shots from the plane.
