American Airlines today announced an amenity kit series that looks back on their history as an airline, which is really neat.
There’s one airline’s amenity kit that I have to have, though.
I was always a big fan of American West – not really for the airline itself, but because of the “culture” I guess you could say. It was the pre-cursor to the new US Airways, now combined with American. I want that kit! Besides, the kit just looks cool.
The new amenity kits will feature all of American’s “previous” airlines: American Airlines; AirCal; Allegheny; America West; Piedmont; PSA; Reno Air; Trans World Airways (TWA); US Airways
You can receive them in international business class, or the A321T transcontinental first class.
Here’s more information about the kits from an AA press release:
While these kits play up American’s retro branding, the airline took a forward-looking approach to selecting the personal travel products contained inside. The heritage amenity kits in international Business Class contain fabric lining, a pair of socks and an eye mask styled with the colors of a specific airline, a toothbrush and toothpaste, Scope® mouthwash, covers for Bose® QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headsets provided with each seat, earplugs, a pen, tissues and hand lotion, lip balm and wipes by red flower.
The heritage amenity kits in transcontinental First Class contain the fabric lining, socks and eye mask with airline branding, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, and the trio of red flower products.
International First Class customers will receive new, larger kits, containing a pair of plush socks and an eye mask, Scope® mouthwash as well as covers for Bose® QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headsets, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, pen, tissues and the three red flower products in addition to red flower’s face lotion. Customers will also receive upgraded pajamas in a color-block pattern and non-skid, 100 percent cotton terry slippers.
In addition, for the first time, American is rolling 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. These kits contain a pair of socks and eye mask, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, and the trio of red flower products.
