The Best Amenity Kits In The Skies

28 August 2015

Words by Carlie Tucker

When it comes to luxury experiences, airlines are going out of their way to lure passengers with exceptional service and amenities. As if lounging in a lie-flat seat and indulging in custom in-flight menus wasn't enough, now airlines are taking comfort to the next level with a few finer touches. This includes lavish amenity kits.

Most major airlines now call on big names to create in-flight kits that feature the best creams, balms and sprays wrapped up in sleek designer bags to treat passengers while they're in the air. We're counting down the best in the skies.  

Qantas Business Class Limited Edition Oroton Kits

Available to select international flights from Asia on the refurbished A330 aircraft, passengers will enjoy an expertly created kit by Oroton. Exclusive and luxurious, it is everything the discerning traveller is looking for. Presented in a stylish black zipper pouch with signature Oroton hardware, the kit includes:

  • Aurora Spa ASPAR products, including Sweet Orange & Shea Hand Cream, Vanilla & Orange Lip Moisturiser and Ultra Hydrating Face Moisturiser.
  • Business pyjamas, socks and an eye mask along with a dental kit.

Air New Zealand Business Premier Kits

Air New Zealand is known for its playful advertising, and they've carried this effervescent spirit over to their amenity kits. They are available to all Business Premier passengers and are presented in a slim, grey felt zipper pouch. The kit includes:

  • Antipodes skincare products such as vanilla pod day cream and pawpaw and avocado lip balm.
  • Colourful eye mask with a pair of equally vibrant socks
  • Ear plugs, pen and dental kit

Air France La Premiere Kits

Air France launched their new La Premier private suites just over a year ago in a bid to up the luxury ante in the skies. There are only four private suites available onboard the Boeing 777-300ER. It only makes sense that such an exclusive cabin would have its own lavish amenity kit. Presented in a chic black leather Givenchy case, these kits include:

  • Biologique Recherche products such as face cream, anti-fatigue roll-on eye treatment
  • A selection of Givenchy toiletries
  • Eyemask  and Oshibori towel

Qatar First Class Dior Bags

Available to first class passengers, the Dior bags available to first class passengers certainly offer a little something extra. Available in both men's and women's versions both are presented in stylish black Dior bags. The men's version contains:

  • Dior products including Fahrenheit cologne, serum and moisturiser

The women's version offers:

  • Dior products including J'adore perfume and assorted Attimo products

There is even a children's amenity kit that comes in a doll-size SpongBob backpack. It includes:

  • Small SpongeBob pilot plush that can double as a pillow
  • Assorted in-flight entertainment, including an activity book and finger puppets

Emirates First Class Kits

  • The Rouge cologne, aftershave and lotions
  • A reusable Rueffit & Hill razor

British Airways First Class Kit

Another top airline that offers men's and women's kits to all first class passengers, British Airways offers something a bit unique in that the airline decided to go with two different product partners to ensure amenities that suit both men and women. Presented in a sleek dark 'washbag', the men's kit includes:

  • Revitalising Moisturiser, Eye Gel and Shave Gel provided by The Refinery
  • Assorted toiletries, including lip balm, deodorant and a dental kit
  • A brush and comb, razor and pen

Presented in a lighter version of the 'washbag', the women's kit includes:

Delta Business Elite TUMI Kits

As of 1 July, leading American airline, Delta, is upping their Business Elite luxury with the addition of exclusive amenity kits designed with TUMI. These packs are available to all Business Elite customers. What's more interesting is that they are available to both domestic and international travellers. The only difference between the two kits is one comes in a soft-side TUMI bag while the other comes in a hard-side ballistic nylon TUMI bag. Both kits include:

  • Malin+Goetz skin products, including lotion and lip moisturiser
