Mr. iFly is the mascot of iFly Airlines, and takes the form of a slow loris wearing a captain's hat. Various items of the airline's merchandise feature him, including piggy banks and plush dolls. The piggy banks use the captain's hat as a seal. One such piggy bank was a piece of evidence in Miles Edgeworth's investigation into the murder of Akbey Hicks.
Role in a murder
- Main article: Turnabout Airlines
On March 12, 2019, Flight I-390 entered a fateful period of turbulence at 5:40 a.m., Central European Time. This turbulence caused a Mr. iFly piggy bank to break through its glass case onto the floor of the plane's in-flight shop. Flight attendant Cammy Meele, having killed a passenger named Akbey Hicks, hastily moved the body and the piggy bank to the lounge to pin her crime on Miles Edgeworth, who was lying unconscious on the floor. The turbulence had foiled her original plan to hide the body inside a suitcase and pin the crime on chief flight attendant Rhoda Teneiro.
Edgeworth thus woke up to find Hicks's body at 6:00. The piggy bank was quickly found as well, and it was initially believed to have been the murder weapon. Afterwards, Edgeworth used it to point out that since the bank had come from the in-flight shop, the murderer had not only been in the lounge. However, this was ruled out when it was found that the murder had occurred much earlier than the turbulence, which was when the bank fell out of the case. Nonetheless, the issue of the piggy bank continued to be brought up by Meele and Franziska von Karma, slowing down the investigation. Edgeworth eventually proved Meele to be Hicks's killer.
Cammy Meele possessed a Mr. iFly plush doll. The doll served to augment Meele's image as a chronically sleepy, largely incompetent flight attendant. This image was a cover to avert suspicion from her.
