Air New Zealand — the airline that brought you a four minute long, Hobbit-themed in flight safety video — has now made an official Hobbit plane.Don’t get too excited, flight attendants aren’t wearing elf ears. But the outside of the Boeing 777-300 does have an 830 square meter Hobbit graphic.
According to CNN, “it’s the premium cabin passengers who really score with Hobbit-themed menus and hairy Hobbit socks in their amenity kits.”
Hopefully the meals are as creative as Denny’s Hobbit-themed menu, which includes “Gandalf’s Gobble Melt” and the “Hobbit Hole Breakfast.”
New Zealand’s Willington International Airport also erected a disconcerting 43-foot sculpture of Gollum suspended from the ceiling.
The Hobbit premiers December 14, and the trilogy brought $580 million in film related business and tourism to New Zealand.
