Airline amenity kits come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes & designs and are made by many different companies. The contents inside also vary from kit to kit.
I’ve received kits which were really bad, being not much more than a paper envelope with a few items inside (the worst amenity kit ever?) and have also received some great kits like the awesome and collectible Oktoberfest inspired kit from Lufthansa.
These are just a couple of examples of amenity kits given out by airlines- typically to premium cabin passengers.
I came across a fun slideshow from Travel + Leisure last month about the Coolest Airline Amenity Kits!
Here are T+L’s picks for Top Airline Amenity Kits:
- American Airlines First Class Kit by Eames– I got this on our flight home from Japan. What makes this kit stand out is that it can be used as a tablet case.
- Air France La Premiere Amenity Kit– made by Givenchy
- Air New Zealand Business Premier Class Kit– includes eye masks with funny messages on them.
- British Airways Men’s & Women’s First– includes high-end products inside
- Cathay Pacific First Class Female Travel Kit– bag by Trussardi & looks like a clutch
- Delta Business Elite Tumi Kits– I got a couple of these at the Delta T4X Closing Concert in 2013. This is a nice little bag which Kim uses for her makeup.
- Etihad Sougha Limited Editions Kits– I got this great looking kit at the NY Times Travel Show. Hopefully they’ll still be giving out the economy version when we fly to Abu Dhabi in August.
- JetBlue Birchbox for Mint Experience– I thought the idea of teaming with Birchbox was a creative and interesting move. Watch Jake from Modhop “Unbox” the kits.
- Emirates First Class Bulgari Amenity Kits– From the photo I saw of this kit, the Bulgari bag looks like a keeper.
- Eva Air Rimowa Amenity Kits in Royal Laurel Biz Class– The smallest Rimowa bags (kits) are highly collectible and come in a variety of colors. I’d love one of these for my collection.
- KLM Viktor & Rolf World Business Class Amenity Kit– The women’s version looks nice enough to reuse for a night out on the town.
- Qantas Business Class Jack & Kate Spade Amenity Kits– The kits look small but stylish.
- Singapore Airlines First Class Ferragamo Amenity Kits– Nice looking kit with the highlight (for women) being a 1 ounce bottle of Signorina eau de toilette. (BTW- The pouch we received when we flew Singapore Air in Business Class was one of the worst that I’ve seen or received.)
- Turkish Airlines First Class Porsche Amenity Kit– this looks like a great case and one that I’d probably use for plugs or electronics since it is made with a hard-shell.
- Japan Airlines First Class Kit– Looks like a nice toiletry bag but not as nice as many of the others on this list.
- Qatar First Class Dior Bag– There were no photos of these kits although they do sound nice. The kids kit sounds even more awesome- a SpongeBob that can be used as a backpack filled with fun things to occupy little ones on the flight.
Do you have a favorite airline amenity kit? My favorite is the Lufthansa Oktoberfest kit which I received flying in Business Class (link to review above).
