In a rather inane promotion, Chengdu Airlines has started offering “spicy flights” between Chengdu and Shanghai.
Now, what makes these flights so spicy, you say? Well, for one thing, there are pepper-shaped pillows. Also, each passenger is given a bag of spicy snacks. And, to top it all off, are taught about Chengdu’s spicy food culture and hot pot through short inflight videos.
The themed flights started on Sunday and will continue for a month as a way of promoting the spicy food of Chengdu and Sichuan province… which we’re pretty sure all passengers are already well aware of.
