New/retro amenity kits for American Airlines

American Airlines new amenity kit

American Airlines has rolled out a new batch of what it is calling “Going for Great” upgrades and among the perks are limited edition amenity kits honoring nine airlines that have morphed into the modern-day airline: American Airlines, AirCal, Allegheny, America West, Piedmont, PSA, Reno Air, TWA and US Airways.

American Airlines Heritage TWA Amenity Kit

The retro-themed heritage amenity kits will be available through January 2016 for passengers in international Business Class or transcontinental First Class and are felt cases designed to be re-used as a mini-tablet computer case.

The airline plans to roll the legacy themes out in batches of three every four months.

In international Business Class the kits will contain a pair of socks and an eye mask styled with the colors of a specific airline, a toothbrush and toothpaste, mouthwash, headset covers earplugs, a pen, tissues, hand lotion, lip balm and wipes.

The amenity kits in transcontinental First Class will have socks and an eye mask with the airline branding, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, and personal care products.

International First Class customers will receive new, larger kits, containing socks and an eye mask, mouthwash, headset covers, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, pen, tissues and personal care products. Upgraded pajamas and cotton terry slippers will also be handed out.

As a nice bonus, American will also start handing out amenity kits in Business Class on its transcontinental service between New York and Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as Miami and Los Angeles.

Limited edition & PGA-themed amenity kits from United Airlines


United Airlines has been making upgrades to its premium cabin service and this week rolled out its latest perk: a new set of commemorative amenity kits and the promise of a PGA-themed kit that will arrive in April.

Why a PGA theme and not a rock & roll, football or pirate theme?

(Wouldn’t those be fun?)

United is the official airline of the PGA Tour, so PGA-themed kits it is.

These will double as shoe-bags and include traditional amenity kit items plus tees, golf balls and a golf-related discount offer. Look for these kits on international flights departing and arriving the United States.


In the meantime, United is distributing a new set of limited edition tin amenity kits.
