Thursday Giveaway: United GlobalFirst Special Edition Amenity Kit and 10,000 United MileagePlus Miles

by on February 20, 2014 · 612 comments

in New York Times, Thursday Giveaway, United

I recently made my first long-haul trip in United GlobalFirst from Los Angeles to Melbourne and I am currently ‘down under’ at the moment exploring the wonders of Australia – and to celebrate, I am giving away a special edition United amenity kit and 10,000 United miles!

The commemorative amenity kit and the normal one.

The commemorative amenity kit and the normal one.

On my trip down, I was treated to one of United’s new special edition amenity kits as part of the company’s “Flyer Friendly” campaign. Produced and distributed only between January 3 – March 1 of this year, the commemorative tins contain the same amenities found the traditional BusinessFirst and GlobalFirst kits including Philosophy body products, toothbrush and toothpaste, eye mask, footies and more.

However, the casing features imagery commissioned specifically for the campaign. My kit featured imagery of LAX which is one of the eight North American hubs for United (the others being Chicago, New York City, Cleveland, Washington, D.C., Denver, Houston and San Francisco). The campaign is a throwback to the old United tagline of  ”Fly the Friendly Skies” from the 1960′s, which is a classic in its own right (if perhaps a little off for United’s current customer service culture).
Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 6.27.23 PMI think it’s a cute campaign, and the tin is pretty cool, so I am going to give one reader the chance to win this special edition commemorative amenity kit as well as 10,000 United MileagePlus miles.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite in-flight amenity kit is and why. Maybe its the Delta’s Tumi kit with Malin +Goetz products, or perhaps one of my favorites, the Rimowa luggage-shaped kit distributed on EVA Air. Whichever it is, let me know by commenting here or by posting on our Facebook page by 5pm ET on Monday, February 24th to be eligible. You can only enter once. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next week. Good luck!

 And the Winners of Last Week’s Prizes of Passes to the 2014 New York Times Travel Show Are…

    Delta’s Tumi kit!

  • Alex

    My favorite so far was a Tumi kit on Thai F. Looking forward to getting the EVA Rimowa this fall.

  • robert

    I also love the Delta tumi kit

  • JA

    The Rimowa kit from EVA

  • michael

    Playing cards. My younger sister has been collecting them since age 10, so she’s always delighted when I find a deck that she doesn’t own yet!

  • JP2

    The Rimowa kits for sure.

  • David

    I enjoy those turkish economy kits because its one of the only carriers i know to still provide amenity kits to economy

  • http://www.knowingandmaking.com/ Leigh Caldwell

    Only one I’ve had was an Air France first class kit ages ago – with pyjamas and slippers that I used for years. Good incentive!

  • ben

    The Rimowa kit!

  • diondi

    Is it wrong to say that I like Lufthansa’s JetFriends kit? I think that it’s incredibly cute.

  • Dan

    I’ve never had the opportunity to receive one, but I’m saving my miles so my fiance and I can fly First Class to Bali for our honeymoon. I have to say that the Cathay Pacific kit in your review looked like it had lovely PJs and thus would be the neatest one I’ve seen in your reviews!

  • Osmaan

    The Turkish Airlines amenity kit always does it for me!

  • Luke

    I desperately want a Rimowa amenity kit to match my Rimowa carry-on. In matte black, if you please. The non-frequent fliers in my life just don’t get it.

  • Charlie

    I am going to have to go with Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class
    amenity kit. Given the eco footprint of the transportation industry, it is
    refreshing to see a kit made from plastic bottles. The kit contains all items
    you would need for travel and doubles as a soft ipad protector. Also, Virgin
    offers separate kits for economy plus and standard economy. Virgin continues to innovate
    in an industry where positive change is scarce. Bravo to Virgin and I hope to
    provide them more business in the future.

  • J Hanserd

    The British Airway kit was solid

  • Robert

    BA’s Anya Hindmarch kit for the adjustable eyeshades via the velcro strip. pretty comfortable too

  • Roy H

    The LH Rimowa kit..out of all the Rimowa ones I just love the color of theirs (brownish copper).

  • Blair

    Definitely the Delta kit! Malin + Goetz products smell great and are so nice to have on a long-haul flight!

  • Yi

    Hi the point guy, I wish I can get this commemorative amenity kit and give it to my wife as present. Thank you very much!

  • Jess S.

    I have a soft spot for all things Tumi, so the Delta Tumi kit would have to be my pick. Thanks!

  • Daniel

    Never gotten one. Still trying to save up miles for a first-class trip to Australia next year!

  • M Jones

    As basic as they are… I really liked the Air Transat Club Class kits…

  • AMSBelle

    I’ve never actually received an amenity kit, but I hear great things about the British Airways first class one!

  • Dawn P

    I’ve never received a kit: I like to maximize my travel by using miles for coach flights. Hoping to receive my first one from this contest!

  • Keith

    The Rimowa kit!

  • Carter

    British Airways Concorde kit.

  • chekyo4

    The Delta Tumi kit is the only one I have the chance to enjoy, only had one business class experience so far, saving up miles for my next flight.

  • Paul W

    The Eva Rimowa kit is my favorite. I think the dark green makes it the most elegant version of the Rimowa case.

  • Paul Bannister

    I won’t get mine until next month but I’m looking forward to the BA First Anya Hindmarsch!

  • Dixon

    EVA’s Rimowa kit for its classy look

  • Thomas

    I love the Cathay Pacific kit…. it is the first one I ever received, so that itself is reason enough for me!

  • Rod

    Goes to BA not only for an all around great kit, but it would simply have to be because of their amazing eye masks in business. Blocks out so much light, it’s super comfortable, and this light sleeper (who never sleeps on planes) sleeps like a baby on every flight

  • Jesse

    I always liked Delta’s with the sleep shade and toothbrush on international flights to Tel Aviv. I still use the pouch to carry my passports and important docs!

  • Kevin

    My favorite is the Delta Tumi kit.

  • mary

    I too have never received a kit- so would love to see the one for United! Thank you so much!

  • mike n.

    AA’s ipad case. i’ve actually used that, other ones i’ve either just dumped or threw someplace and never bothered with it again. Soft cases are much better for storage if you’re actually going to save the things.

  • TS

    My favorite was the BA First kit from a flight last summer.

  • Aarif

    That Rimowa one looks pretty cool. The only time I ever flew international premium class (EY J) the amenities were pretty “meh”.

  • Chris

    Haven’t had many amenity kits, but enjoyed the KLM one I got last year.

  • Louis

    I have never had one, so would love this one to be my first. :-)

  • Jeff Reardon

    To be honest I have never received a kit as I have never flown business or first class. With your help I have stockpiled over a million miles in the last 10 months. hoping to use some on our anniversary in June. Thanks for all the help!

  • pcg

    I’ve only gotten some pretty okay kits, but I like the simple bag from United and the svelte one from LAN. Use them all the time now for toiletry bags in a pinch while traveling!

  • Dale M

    I was impressed with the AA F kit from last year – the IPAD case was a nice touch.

  • Apple

    The Emirates kit!

  • lamonster

    I love the Delta Tumi kit

  • MarcMon

    Turkish amenity kits because economy passengers got them too!

  • PSeilsopour

    These Kets look great. I have not had the pleasure of a long haul First Class kit but I enjoy reading about them on your site. The EVA experience looks amazing; keep up the good work!

  • Bopcat

    I only one I had was from EVA elite class with slippers included.

  • VM

    I also have never received a kit. Just got into the miles and points game recently (with the help of this blog) so hope to receive one soon!

  • Cali D

    I’m simple. I like any kit that comes with pajamas. The last one I got was on Virgin Atlantic.

  • Ron

    The United special edition LAX tin because I’m from LA and was supposed to get one on my BussinessFirst flight in January but they didn’t have them!

  • Gregg Z

    I’m new to all this and just did my first AOR this morning so pretty excited. Never got a kit before but the Rimowa suitcase one was pretty clever.

  • Bay

    Haven’t gotten a kit just yet, but look forward to it

  • Kurt

    All of the mini-Rimowa’s are great. I prefer the LH ones over the TG ones because purple and orange are kind of ugly colors…sorry TG ;-)

  • Anne – Music and Markets

    Since we’re always on United across the water, that’s what it’s got to be for me… and I really like the Philosophy products, and keep those little tubes of handcream and lipbalm in all my purses!

  • Jim Wyers

    Flying into Spain one time on Iberia Airlines, they gave us dessert spoons to keep with out dessert. They had the Iberia Airlines “I” on the handle, my kids still use them to this day. I hate to say, one of the longest lasting trinkets brought home from a trip.

  • Ken

    I would really like the little Rimowa case :-)

  • ducksman

    never got a kit…

  • MSPTraveler

    I’ve only had the opportunity so far to sample the Delta Tumi kit. 10K United miles would help get me in the direction of sampling some of the others :)

  • brianlinca

    My fav is the Tumi kit from Delta! Love the sturdy and muted design, looks so elegant!

  • Larry

    The Shanghai Tang PJs on Cathay Pacific! Okay the amenity kit is pretty good too but the slippers and PJs I’m still wearing a year later…

  • Peter

    It has got to be the Rimowa. I would love to see someone actually pack a shirt in there and try to check it as a real suitcase.

  • Peter

    The Delta Tumi kit rules! I have other Tumi products (backpack and luggage), so it certainly goes along with my other Tumi bags!

  • Dave

    Thai Air amenity kit is the best! Hands down the highest quality products.

  • bump513

    Fave: Delta Tumi w/Malin + Goetz. 2nd is AA’s Eames bag (just the bag).

  • Lyssa

    My favorite would probably be that Untied kit in the ORD tin, however I would be happy to win the LAX one. :) I’ve never flown first class, so this would be my first kit.

  • Katie K

    Virgin Atlantic amenity kit because that flight was the first time I flew first/upper overseas. I still have it and it brings back memories of how special they made me feel on my inaugural first class flight!

  • hungryhabibi

    Emirates’ Bulgari brown leather amenity bags are pretty awesome.

  • grocerylist

    Does anyone remember MaxJet? They weren’t around very long but that’s the only Amenity kit I’ve ever experienced. It wasn’t very exciting, a blue pouch with socks, eye mask and earplugs. Supposedly later on they had a Hermes-branded kit.

  • byroshi

    my favorite is the EVA rimowa kit!

  • Edward

    Still waiting on my first. Once I can compare, I’ll update my post. Until then, I’ll go with this one based on the commissioned imagery.

  • mjdth

    I’ve never received an in-flight amenity kit, so winning this one would make it my favorite!

  • ryanzalewski

    My wife swears by Ethihad’s Swarovski amenity kit, which she still uses as a cosmetics bag 2 years after our flight.

  • Stratos

    How can I answer when I am an amenity kit virgin…? Looking forward to my first ones for my upcoming trip this weekend!

  • Aubrey Miller

    The best amenity kit I’ve had is from Japan Airlines business class because of the moisturizing face mask. Very Japanese. I took two and brought one home for use with a Halloween costume. Dual purpose!

  • Alice

    Tumi kit for sure

  • rob

    Gotta be the EVA Rimowa kits. I have a soft spot for all things Rimowa.

  • artezd

    This one will be coolest one if I end up getting it:)

  • Geoff

    Mine is definitely the Delta Tumi kit. My parents were on a flight from New York to Israel and brought one home for me. I have used that bag for all of my toiletries for just about every trip (long and short) that I have taken since I got it. It’s still in tip top condition! and 10,000 points would be perfect, just enough to get me to my next United mileage plus rewards flight!

  • MW

    I usually bring all my toiletries so its all about the bag, case for me and I like Rimowa’s the best

  • tiffany l

    i love the ipa nima bags female passengers receive in cathay pacific’s first class. the bags are beautifully embroidered and fun to use. (that said, i’m not a huge fan of the aesop products found within them.)

  • Jason

    ANA Samsonite travel case. It holds all my toiletries and can be hanged.

  • Grant

    I have never received a kit like this before so receiving my first would be awesome! Thank you for this giveaway!

  • Chad

    I like the Qantas amenities kit–it’s practical, with a generous supply of Malin + Goetz products, and some nifty Qantas pajamas. The amenities kits are in bags designed by a prominent Australian designer–very chic and modern–correlates with the Aussies’ sense of fashion. The bags don’t look “nerdy” as some amenities bags look, so they have a nice continuing value–the Qantas bags look completely appropriate and stylish when used as bags for day-to-day travel.

  • Jess

    I’m a very casual flyer (for now!) and it has to be Wifi. Even at $8 bucks for 30-45 min domestic flights on Southwest it’s worth it for me.

  • Paul Teixeira

    The Male Thai Royal First Tumi kit has a great sized Tumi travel bag and comes with Hermes cologne and lotion. Not to mention the complimentary pajamas!

  • Jay R

    Emirates amenities kit. Fly in style

  • Anne

    My preference is the Delta, only because that is the only one I have had.

  • crystal s

    My favorite is the Rimowa luggage shaped kit.

  • Sam

    I’ve never tried any of the amenities kit, would be cool to get one of these to try!

  • Juan Sequeda

    I have only flown United… so my answer is United.

  • Shelly

    Gosh, I’ve never been the recipient of one of these kits, but I’d sure love to be!

  • Carey

    United Global First is my favorite amenity kit!

  • Alexander

    Lufthansa First Class kit – Bulgari moisturizer, lip balm, and shaving cream + razor…everything a flying gentleman needs to look great for next day’s meeting!

  • Tiff

    I have to say, American Airlines Premium Class Eagle Logo Amenity Kit because that’s the only one I’ve seen/used in recent memory.

  • Mark

    I think the Delta Kit is probably the best, but I have never had that experience before. Hoping to get enough miles to upgrade the honeymoon to first class and get one though!

  • Stephen Lioy

    After all your comments about them, I’d love to check out a Rimowa from EVA or elsewhere.

  • Monique

    I like Etihad’s new limited edition amenity kit, featuring neat weaving patterns and colors. I also like Finnair’s minimalist, eco-friendly kit.

  • KTM

    Although the Delta Tumi kits are a close second, Etihad’s Swarovski kit has to be my favorite.

  • Howard

    Delta’s Tumi kit – love the eye mask

  • Tejash Patel

    I liked the Eva air kit because it came in a mini Rimowa case! Very nice.

  • Kathy S

    I have only been privvy to a BA kit about a decade ago, so that would have to be my favorite by default! I still use the sleep mask from time to time.

  • Steph L

    The next amenity kit I get will be my favorite! #firstworldproblems

  • Karen

    I’ve only had Cathay Pacific’s kit, which isn’t much to write home about. I’d love to try United’s!

  • Allie39

    Never had one a would love to get one

  • r0m8470

    AA Bose Noise Cancelling headset …. block out the snore from the passenger across the aisle!

  • SPM

    Eva air kit because it came in a mini Rimowa case!

  • GD

    I just received my first amenity kit from EVA Royal Laurel Class from a flight from Taiwan to San Francisco. It’s a mini Rimowa case and it’s the first ammenity kit where I will reuse as a Toiletry Kit. I consider this as my favorite!

  • Alfonso 14th

    British Airway’s business class kit.

  • George

    My favorite is the Delta Tumi Kit.

  • Jonathan

    My favorite is probably the British Airways kit, which was this gorgeous leather-type box.

  • Cheng Qian

    Rimowa kit from Thai Airways!love the cute purple color

  • Pete Winterscheidt

    It’s been a while but the eye masks on Singapore Airlines was one of the nicest I have ever gotten.

  • Jeff

    I think the best of the bunch I’ve experienced is the BA First amenity kit.

  • zbird

    I like the TAM business class amenity kit because the container is made of clear plastic so it can be re-used as a carry-on cosmetics case for liquids. The bag has a zip closure but is much more flexible and sturdy than a disposable plastic bag.

  • Rebecca D.

    Rimowa kit from Thai Airways. I’ve got two in the silver color.

  • Oanh

    Thank you! I would say the Rimowa luggage-shaped kit from any airline.

  • Bradley B.

    I’m with Louis. I’ve never received one, so whichever is my first immediately moves to favorite position. :)

  • theturtleguy

    I like the Hello Kitty Themed Kits on special EVA flights

  • Marc

    I would also agree with a lot of readers that the Delta Tumi kits are the best in the business. I just wish they included the little pilot wings pin I use to get as a kid #memories

  • MRL

    Qatar Airways with Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kit

  • PG

    Only have had one from Air France, Has to be the best!

  • Alex N

    Cathay Pacific! Love the the bag – handmade with beads and appliqués.

  • EArcher

    Virgin because you get the red socks !

  • WJC

    I’ve never flown in business class/first class before. But I would really love to have one from United!

  • Robert

    I’ve only had the Lufthansa Business Class amenity kit and was very pleased with it!

  • Joe

    Asiana Coach ICN to Seattle flight comes with slippers!

  • jlgctm

    I like Virgin Atlantic’s notebook and pen, red socks and ear plugs.

  • drew

    I have never received a kit, but look forward to getting a BA kit in the near future, so it will automatically be my favorite. Thanks

  • Chatelaine

    I’ve never flown business/first so I don’t have one I can mention. I can say that back in the day Cathay pacific gave out decent kits on their LAX/HKG leg for economy. But that’s gone now……..

  • Federico

    Flying cheapest economic ticket, I have never had one. Would like this one to be my first. :)

  • wiznick

    I had my first one last month flying LH F. It was pretty awesome.

  • Tim

    I would be happy with any kit as it would be my first!

  • WindBird7

    Never received a kit,

  • Lauren

    As much as I dislike Air China, I love their L’Occitane amenities kit.

  • TMH

    I’ve only flown UA so I have their amenity kit. I really want the LAX tin as I’m based in LAX and saving up miles (just did a recent round of apps) to go visit my family and then for a vacation!

  • Thompson

    Hands down the surprise Hello Kitty amenity kits from EVA. My nieces fight for them!

  • Alexis Lavko

    Air France used to have a L’Occitane amenity kit that I loved (one of my favorite brands in the air or on the ground) because of the hand cream and bar soap.

  • TL

    Favorite? I’ve never had the privilege of receiving an amenity kit. I’ll put those United miles to use towards my first!

  • MB

    Definitely the Qantas Kate Spade & Jack Spade amenity kits with Malin + Goetz products. The rest of the kit is pretty standard (socks, eye covers, ear plugs, and toothbrush), but these are the only pouches I’d reuse–and they happen to fit an iPad mini perfectly!

  • Jae

    united

  • Von Schaper

    My personal favorite is DL’s Tumi, mainly because I can use that Tumi bag or give it away. Least favorite AeroMexico…..if that can be called an amenity kit.

  • Tanu

    I like EVA Air’s Rimowa luggage kit

  • ss

    I like the Rimowa luggage-shaped kit. Very cool idea.

  • Todd S.

    Delta. Love my Malin + Goetz products!

  • Kirby

    I’ll echo the EVA Rimowa amenity kit. It’s super high quality and extremely useful as a toiletry back for subsequent trips!

  • Shawn

    I don’t have much to compare with but I did enjoy the United amenity kit when I flew business class from Europe last year.

  • Ezra

    My favorite travel kit wasn’t fancy, but it was my first so it will always be my fondest. If only that was the case for all my firsts. It was on Cathay’s Econ class in September 2002, when I took my first international trip alone to Thailand. Being only one year out from the Trade Center people still really weren’t flying that much, there was still a heavy National Guard presence at the airport, and the plane was three quarters empty. My ticket was $600 round trip and I ended up having a whole row to myself. It was a bit eerie, but the travel kit and moreover the famed service of the Cathay flight attendants transformed a flight that could have served as a long haul reminder of tragedy, into a remembrance that civilization continues to move forward despite the numerous attempts to derail its progress. I’ve kept that green pouch (minus the contents) that contained slippers, toothpaste, a toothbrush, eye mask, and facial products, but happily no longer have a row to myself when I fly.

  • Andrew

    Delta — It’s one of the only kits that I have reused for other purposes. And the products are great too.

  • Dizzy

    I guess my fav amenity kit was the only real one I’ve gotten in economy- Turkish Airlines has its own tin all the time, with a nice ancient map detail.

  • Matthew Wilson

    Delta is the only one that I have ever seen! I would love to compare.

  • Dianna

    I’ve never received a kit before, but I will put those 10k miles to good use towards my first :)

  • Lou

    My favorite was a Rimowa case I received on EVA because I can reuse it. When guests visit i load it up with travel sized items from my recent hotel stays and put it on the shelf in the guest bath. A lot of the soft sided cases get reused to hold those toiletry items in my “box of mystery” in the closet.

  • AdamM

    My father brought me back an amenity kit from Varig airlines in the early 1990s. I still have some of the contents, and they remind me that I come by my travel obsessions genetically. I just remember the awe that you get free things when you fly.

  • Goosh

    CX Shanghai Tang PJs and sleep mask.

  • kyle

    Never had an amenity kit! But I like the idea of them

  • JTP

    Hm. I’ve gotten Delta and American kits but… would love a united kit!!! This blog is getting me well on my way to getting on one.

  • Melissa

    I would pick Rimowa as a favorite because of the adorable case, and last choice would be Delta because I’ve never needed a shoe horn!

  • Bryan

    Mine is also Delta’s Tumi kit!

  • Sarah

    I’ve only received them on international flights and the best is the eye shade since I always forget to pack one. It helps me sleep on the plane, plus after an Aeroflot flight to Moscow in May, the eye shade came in handy trying to sleep during the trip, since at that time in Russia it’s only dark for a couple hours!

  • VP

    Thai airways kit

  • Scott M.

    Although basic, I still have and use the products from my Virgin Atlantic ammentitis kit which includes a dop kit and sleep mask I rarely travel without.

  • SusTan

    Amenity International (not to be confused with Amnesty)… I need it. I want it. Thank you in advance. And, you can write off on taxes. No, not really.

  • christinecg

    Cathay Pacific! they always have the best stuff.

  • Jonathan Brewer

    I actually like the BA kits for it’s classic presentation and use of awesome DR Harris products. Oh, and socks! :)

  • Adam

    Only ever had Delta, ANA and Air France kits. Of those the Delta Tumi is the best by far.

  • Ed Barnes

    My favorite amenity is still a delicious cocktail.

  • WS

    Haven’t encountered a truly memorable amenity kit….yet! But my mother has a collection of these cute little ceramic Dutch houses from various KLM flights, like a little series of travel memories on the bookshelf! Love them!

  • Lauren

    I love any amenity kits that include plush socks as i always forget to bring those!

  • ChiliPalmer

    My favorite is an old AA kit – I like, and reuse, the bag itself.

  • mikey_hong

    it’s been ages since i’ve gotten an amenity kit… last one that was memorable though had one of those little evian water spray cans in it. i was pretty dumbfounded at first, but it made sense later when i realized how drying air travel can be.

  • Luke US

    Delta’s Tumi kit is the one for me! :)

  • Juan Rodriguez

    I’ve had several amenity kits before and thought Virgin Atlantic’s was cool until I saw your EVA Air kit… Wow!

  • JMN

    Would love an amenity kit

  • Jeevs

    I like the delta kit, its classy understand and useful!

  • Jason

    Can’t beat the sturdy Rimowa kit from Eva, partly because you can rummage through it all while having your pre-departure Dom Perignon!

  • andrew m

    I have never had the privilege of receiving an amenity kit :(

  • DAL

    I’ve gotten upgraded a few time domestically (never international), but never on a flight where they gave an amenity kit. Hope to change that in the near future.

  • Ariel

    The tumi amenity kit, because it definitely contains all the essentials I ALWAYS forget!

  • Andy Waters

    In my adult life I haven’t had the opportunity to receive an amenity kit. However, I do have a memory of my favorite amenity experience. As a child, my family and I lived in Hawaii and we had a family friend who worked for Continental Airlines. Anytime we were flying back to the states, she would upgrade us to the the highest class on our flight. On one of our trips we had the privilege of having reclining seats with leg rests and pop up televisions in the armrests. A special treat like that was amazing for children. We also received a small amenity kit which included one of the Evian refreshing spray cans. You can imagine how much fun two children had with these. I’ll always remember my family’s early experiences on Continental; and that’s why I remain loyal to United today.

  • Neer

    Favorite Kit is definitely Lufthansa’s First Class Rimowa kit…..with the LH symbol, it is the sleekest thing out there

  • American Dreamer

    I have never got one, unfortunately, but i’d love to of course.

  • Matthew Ender

    Lufthansa hands-down…but really only because of the rubber ducky!

  • David Miller

    Air france… because it’s the only one I’ve got.

  • Eric Michaels

    Haven’t received an amenity kit yet but hope to accumulate some soon from various airlines. Would love to get my hands on one of these cool tins from United.

  • Michael Aaron

    I like the pajamas from Qatar airlines.

  • Jeffrey

    Never had the privilege as my awards are usually in coach with kiddos… I’ll leave them back there when they are a bit older. Those 10,000 United points would help me offset some of the deval pain… Thanks,

  • KidMcCoy

    The shorehorn in Cathay Pacific’s amenity kit is a very nice touch

  • Steph

    I’ve never had the privilege of getting an amenity kit, but I have only recently begun to REALLY travel. I hope one day to be fortunate enough to experience all the perks of being a frequent traveler like yourself.

  • Natalie

    My favorite is the Turkish Air business class kit that is re-usable as an iPad cover.

  • James Merrill

    I love the Rimowa kit I got on Lufthansa First last month FRA-DEN. Good contents and super reusable. Thanks!

  • Jack Marsh

    There is no better Amenity kit than those handed out by Singapore Airlines. Everything that you could imagine that you would need for those VERY long haul flights.

  • Ted

    LH’s Rimowa kit. Very handy!

  • Will

    I’ve received a blanket and some peanuts with American Airlines once. Does that count?

  • MerRhosyn

    I fondly remember the yellow rubber ducky in the old Virgin Atlantic amenity kits!

  • ken roden

    I really love the Lufthansa Moleskin Business Class, the notebook inside has a beautifully designed cover great to note memories from your trip!

  • Patrick Mc

    I was given a Lufthansa First Class amenity kit by a colleague who flew on them last year. I am looking forward to receiving my own kit when I fly them later this year back from Munich during Oktoberfest! (Booked pre-devaluation!)

  • Benj

    The TACA kit was a really nice one, mostly because it’s one I really needed. (They stranded us in Los Angeles when we were supposed to be getting to San Francisco.)

  • Zach

    The Lufthansa amenity kit is probably my favorite, my daughter uses the case for her makeup!

  • Blythe

    My favorite is Lufthansa’s first class amenity kit with La Mer products and Rimowa case. It’s my favorite to have such high quality products that are gender specific. Plus, I kind of consider the soft PJ’s as part of the kit too!

  • Alex

    I’ve never received an in-flight amenity kit. So this would be a great way to get my first one, and obviously, it would be my favorite!

  • Steven

    The Turkish Air business class kit that is reusable as an iPad cover – my favorite!

  • Joanna

    Asiana airlines first class amenity kit for its Bvlgari products!

  • Stompey5

    I enjoyed my Brussels Airlines kit, it wasn’t flashy but got the job done (esp since I forgot toothpaste!)

  • Yi

    My favorite is the for-men CX business class kit. It’s made by agnes b and its lip protector is the all time best!!

  • Narayana

    Emirates business class kit with Bulgari products and is very complete with even a shaving razor and foam

  • LC

    Qatar’s is my favorite amenity kit, no doubt…

  • Chris Nigon

    The Tumi kit from Thai is what I use regularly when I travel now.

  • Andrew

    The British Airways First kit has an awesome box

  • Dan J

    I haven’t had an amenity kit yet, but the United miles could help me get my first!

  • Lauren

    Loved the American Airlines First Class kit on our way back to DC from Tokyo last year. IPad case, tissues (which I always need) and Dermatologica products that were actually pretty good. Liked the scent better than the Hermes products that I got with on my Thai First flight from Bangkok to Tokyo. All of those flights were free thanks to TPG!

  • David

    Continental… because it’s the only one I’ve ever received.

  • SC

    Emirates Amenity Kit, has Bvlgari products and useful things.

  • jbreg11

    I’ve never had the privilege of flying long haul in global first, but I’ll be glad to put the miles and kit to use on my European vacation next month.

  • Danielle

    I’ve never had an amenity kit, but i sure could use the miles to get me to Norway this summer!

  • Matthew Stamper

    I have never had the pleasure of receiving one. This one would be my first and I can use the 10,000 points towards my European trip this fall.

  • Urbanist

    Delta’s Tumi is the best I’ve ever received. The little bag is large enough (fits a standard toothbrush and standard comb perfectly) and durable enough to reuse for short trips. I toss it in a duffle or a backpack when I’m only going to be gone for a night or two. The products are ok, nothing to write home about, but the bag is great.

  • dean

    flight to FRA had compression socks, face/eye cap for sleeping and some treats..though it was Xmas season too

  • Joey

    I love cathays zegna kits, nice and sleak

  • James

    Ive never gotten a amenity kit, hoping the 10k miles will help!!

  • nagrom9

    I love the tin!

  • Andy

    I’ve never received an amenity kit, but am looking forward to it next year!

  • Jeff

    I wouldn’t mind the United kit. I wish we were flying first class on our upcoming Hawaii trip!

  • J.T.

    Love the Rimowa hard shell amenity kit. Be it form Lufthansa, Thai, ANA or Eva Air…all of them are great!

  • Mike S.

    Etihad has a pretty decent first class male amenity kit that contains La Prairie toiletries, a Schick razor, shaving cream and other standard items – all of which comes in a very handsome re-usable leather box. I like amenities that are high quality and practical. An i-Pad case is nice and practical, except that most likely you already have one. This leather cuff-link box is unique and can serve many purposes for a long time.

  • Mary W

    Some mouthwash, toothpaste and toothbrush of high quality would keep me happy.

  • John N

    As much as I’d like to convince myself that I am a man of class, I have never received a single amenity kit. But if this one sways me, I may have to fly Business/First when I go on vacation this year!!

  • Truthiness

    Delta’s business elite kit by Tumi, the malin + goetz products are good, but it’s small, durable, and has a shoe horn! Love that they gave it out on my flight from JFK to SEA yesterday.

  • railingk

    Asiana Airlines’ came in an elegant but rugged zip-bag that is the perfect size for holding USB cables and various electronic doodads.

  • Anand

    Bulgari on Emirates

  • frenchman619

    I’ve only gotten one, and it was China Eastern at that. But I like the sound of the Delta Tumi kit though

  • slomichael

    The Korean Air First is a very nice kit, and why the best? Because
    they gave me TWO!

  • Joshua Nard

    The EVA Air Rimowa was certainly nice on a trip to Taiwan.

  • WesB

    This United kit looks like a winner to me!

  • http://www.JustinDoesBlog.com/ Justin Does…

    I like ANY amenity kit that has a case that can be used for other things. I use one of Delta’s TUMI kits to hold all of my cords and wires in my backpack.

  • Kalboz

    Years ago got a nice amenity kit in First on Japan Airlines

  • Andrew Stergio

    I have not received one as of yet, so I hope today will be my lucky day!

  • cathn

    I’m still working on getting my first one. I hope a visit to Oz will be my first opportunity, too!

  • GetToThePoints

    The United Global First kit was great. I really liked the reusable design of the bag itself and the philosophy brand of skin care items were wonderful.

  • Huang Y

    Love the EVA Air Rimowa kit!

  • Amanda K.

    I’ve never had one so this would be a good way to start!

  • markus

    I’ve never gotten one either and this one looks like a great start!

  • augias84

    My favorite? Alitalia’s amenity kit by Ferragamo! It’s beautiful and I loved the products

  • Darin

    I enjoyed the slippers I got on Asiana. Kept my socks clean while walking the aisles.

  • Uri

    The only one I have (and thus favorite by default) was abandoned by a fellow passenger on a Lufthansa flight who got it as compensation from the flight attendant for some unknown reason and did not like it… It looks very similar to the ones you are dicsussing

  • HV

    Rimowa-shaped amenity kit on Thai Royal First

  • Troy Schmidt

    I obviously need more miles so I can experience an amenity kit. Thanks!

  • Tim

    I’ve not had an amenity kit so I don’t have hands-on experience, but the Eva Air Rimowa kit looks really nice in the photos, like a miniature suitcase! The limited edition United kit has a nice design too, perfect for a vacation (or mileage run!) keepsake :)

  • Ian

    I love the Bvlgari Lufthansa Kits. Look good, everything you need. I kept the one I got and still use it! Only cost 140,000 miles!

  • Chris P

    definitely the Delta’s Tumi kit with Malin +Goetz products. it’s got a little bit of everything you need for the long flight from socks to lotion. nice Tumi bag for future use that is not a hard shell case takes up room in the luggage or not fit on the odd shape colons

  • Joel Ang

    I would love to tell you my experience of first class amenity kits, but have never had the privilege of receiving one!

  • Roger

    It’s hard to go wrong with the Rimowa kits.

  • Daniel

    China Airlines about 8 years ago gave me an amenity kit for my Brisbane–Tapei–Bangkok flight that included eyeshades, slippers, socks, and chopsticks for the all-you-could-eat freeze-dried noodles bowls on the long haul. Gotta love quality chopsticks.

  • Nick O (PIT)

    Southwest doesn’t have amenity kits, and I’ve only flown coach anyway. I’d like to find out what the hype is about though.

  • sanyi

    Rimowa-shaped amenity kit

  • Phil

    Rimowa-shaped amenity kit

  • Dave Westhed

    I love my Tumi kit issued by Delta; any Tumi (plus the contents…)is a good thing.

  • Angela

    Cathay Pacific used to give out kits for economy class. It has an eye mask, socks, toothpaste, tooth brush, and breath mint. I always bring my owner ear plugs.

  • Amit

    Yet to collect enough miles to fly where they give you amenity kits. Like the blog and especially the posts about how to use my points/miles more efficiently. Thanks!

  • RD

    I only have one from Qatar Airways – not a fancy tin box but loved the ear plugs, eye masks and the toothbrush combo.

  • Yaniv Shapira

    The united kit and for a weird reason – the mints…

  • suzsy

    Cathay Pacific First kit and pj’s would be my favorite so far. I think EVA Rimowa might top it but haven’t gotten one yet.

  • SMG

    Well, I can say I wish I’ve had a chance to get an amenity kit in first class myself, but alas I cannot. Would love to win one to see what’s it’s like in first class. It would be my first! They all look great to me!

  • Ralph

    Love me some Rimowa kits

  • LXZ

    never had one, but maybe this it’ll be the united one? :D

  • Mandy

    I have never had an amenity kit, but the United kit sounds awesome!

  • Biggles209

    I love the LH First Class nutcrackers at Christmas

  • Patrick

    Pan Am kit. It was amazing.

  • janie

    TWA is my favorite amenity kit, which tells you how long since I’ve been in first!

  • Eric Chang

    Cathay Pacific First kit and pj’s would be my favorite so far.

  • Steve Burman

    Rimowa kit for me.

  • Raymond_G

    My favorite is definitely Cathay Pacific’s amenity kit, which is a Zegna case with Aesop products and PJ’s… a flight I booked on miles with tips learned from ThePointsGuy!

  • Steve

    Ah, I haven’t had many, but I like the BA amenity kit. I’d love to try the others!

  • Jed

    Got to be the Bvlgari Lufthansa kits

  • Bismay Mishra

    I’ve never had one so would definitely like to get one. Although the miles would be more of a practical help.

  • md9802

    Looking forward to getting my first Cathay Pacific kit in a few months!

  • David Scott

    Sadly I have never had one, I use my miles for economy because I sleep like a baby on a plane (a great talent) So I would rather save my miles for more trips than spend them on higher class tickets. I would love for this one to be my first though!

  • Jacob

    Air Berlin Tumi kit. It’s stylish and is great for reuse.

  • Marc

    I love the United Global First amenity kit because it holds just the right amount of items and can lay flat in my suitcase. I use the case for all of my travels.

  • ZB

    Turkish Airlines ipad case.

  • Kristen Connolly

    When I was little my Dad would come back from European business trips with these little porcelain houses courtesy of I believe KLM. We collected them in our hutch. In my thirty years of flying I have never seen something as unique and memorable as those were. Little did I know they also had alcohol in them!

  • nhmomjcd

    The great pajamas type outfit that Virgin Atlantic gave us in First Class to travel to London!

  • Marc

    I really like the Swiss Air amenity kits with the Valmont products.

  • steve

    The Delta’s Tumi kit with Malin +Goetz products
    it’s the only one I’ve ever gotten

  • Thomas

    The British Airways First Class kit with D.R. Harris & Co. products gets my vote.

  • http://www.adventuresofbrian.com Brian

    I have never received an amenity pick, but I choose United’s by default!

  • SRf

    British Airways’ amenity kit is very practical!

  • Michele

    I’m hoping my (new) favorite amenity kit will be Etihad’s after we fly them to the Maldives.

  • catalett

    TAP Portugal amenity kit for kids – crayons, a puzzle, a toy plane, various snacks and a ton of stickers that my daughter loved. Reminded me of when the airlines made flying an adventure for the kids.

  • Matt

    Rimowa Kit For The Gold!

  • CJ

    Eva Air business class amenity kit

  • Andi

    definitely EVA’s Rimowa Kit.

  • Jonathan

    I like the United Flyer Friendly kits shown here. Retro and good typography? Sign me up!

  • RS88

    My favorite will be this kit which I can give to my fiance as a bit of a teaser for our honeymoon, which will be her first trip in a premium cabin! Here’s to hoping you can help me start off on the right foot!

  • Chris

    I’m sure there’s better but I actually find the united business first kit to be very complete with lots of good reusable items.

  • Susan Pertierra

    The only amenity kit I received was from Lufthansa a long time ago and it was very basic. The Delta Tumi one with Malin & Goetz products sounds like a good one.

  • Ben Looney

    My favorite is the United BusinessFirst kit because it’s the only one I’ve ever gotten because I just recently came across TPG blog and learned how to fly “up front”. Here’s to more amenity kits in my future!

  • KP

    Dear lawdy! Mine is KLM’s houses!

  • Michael Bollhardt

    My favorite is the Lufthansa First Class Bogner Kit. it was just a classy kit and I still use the bag today!

  • Jake Weinstein

    The International First Aid kit on United. As a nurse and Paramedic who travels frequently, including repatriotting US patients, I have cracked this kit on several occasions. When you need drugs and IV fluids at 35,000 feet, nothing beats seeing all your needs in one large black box.

  • Jimmy

    Favorite would have to be EVA Air’s rimowa kit!

  • Jonathan M

    Lufthansa First Class Kit!

  • Frugal4Life

    I haven’t had many of the kits since most of my travel was domestic but the Singapore Airlines one with eye shades, super cozy socks, ear plugs, toothbursh and toothpaste were perfect for the long flight from LAX to Singapore. Definitely helped me feel more refreshed upon arrival :)

  • Sol

    Austrian Airlines First Class Kit.

  • bhanik

    Cathay Pacific because thats the only kit I ever received :)

  • Oliver Palley

    My favourite in-flight amentity kit item (which I was given) is british airways first class eye mask. It has these little nubs that go over your eyes so the mask doesn’t press on your eyes.

  • http://www.michaelwtravels.com/ Michael W Travels

    My favorite is the Lufthansa Oktoberfest kit which I got in early September.

  • ayjay

    love the cathay pacific pjs and slippers

  • scott

    It would have to be Turkish Air with the slippers, eye mask, toothbrush and toothpaste. It’s the only kit I’ve ever received!

  • MSV

    Would love to have a nice amenity kit.

  • Jon B.

    Delta’s Tumi Kit does sound pretty great, but I’m a huge fan of United and not Delta so I’m gunna be biased and say this one is away better.

  • Mike D

    These United ones are the only that I’ve seen before and are very good. Would love the miles, headed to Asia & Europe the next couple years

  • Melissa Morrison-Webb

    The delta kit is the only one I’ve had (on a surprise upgrade from Venice to JFK) but I don’t think it was tumi then.

  • Paul

    Turkish Airlines! I have re-used their small kit to hold my own toiletries everytime I travel.

  • Scott

    never had an amenity kit before! economy flyer here :-/

  • Siddharth

    Etihad airways amenity kit

  • gerardo

    The Salvatore Ferragamo Kit of Lan Airlines

  • michel

    Joining the crowd of haven’t gotten one, as when I fly overseas I’m either paying or redeeming for coach. I would love one though :)

  • SharonB

    Welcome to the Land Down Under! Top of my Bucket List is a Dream Upgrade to First or Business with a lie-flat bed and superb amenity kit! So until that happens your prize would be a real Dream come true

  • Scott

    the Rimowa amenity kits by far. it’s the only kit I show off to my friends!

  • MichaelG

    The Lufthansa Oktoberfest amenity bag is pretty awesome.

  • Lupo

    The Thai Airways Rimowa kits are nice collectables!

  • nick

    Hard to beat the hardshell! Rimowa kit, baby.

  • Dina

    The Rimowa kit is the most stylin

  • Kevin

    The Delta Tumi kit is classy, one of the better parts of the Delta first class product

  • Ben Price

    The DL one is the only one I’ve seen before, but of course, I’d love to see the United one too!!

  • bmp412

    The facemasks from Emirates are nice and very useful.

  • Brad

    I’ve never receives an amenity kit…. so if I win this one would be my favorite?

  • Bruce Hsu

    Rimowa kit is awesome!

  • Eddy

    It’s not exactly an amenity kit but I’m a big fan of the personal gift that Asiana gives you at the end of the flight if you’re in F (last time I got a leather passport holder).

  • FSUmac

    Never had one but that looks nice!

  • https://twitter.com/ProfCharlotte Charlotte (TYR)

    Loved the Rimova amenity kit that ANA handed out on the way to Japan, almost as much as the pajamas, especially the lotion.

  • Devin

    My favorite (and only) amenity kit would be that which I was gifted at a very young age flying Thai Air after being upgraded to First along with my mom.

    If I remember right it was a Thai Air brand amenity kit, but that was years ago. I love Thai Air, with the wonderful service, comfortable slippers and hot towels, can’t beat em in my book.

  • Billf

    I like the Delta Tumi kit. I make long flights that much more bearable.

  • ingvar

    Id love to have one as I’ve never had one before.

  • Sheng

    I love the AA kit on route PEK-ORD.

  • James Horne

    Thai Airlines. I just remember it had very nice quality goodies.

  • Dustin

    United has a pretty nice one so I’d love to check out the commemorative one as I don’t have any upcoming flights during the giveaway time.

  • Andrea

    Haven’t had an amenity kit before so I feel the commemorative United kit would be a great way to start!

  • MSPpete

    i received a Bulgari kit on Alitalia with great smelling colonge and hand cream

  • randall mack

    Turkish Airlines Business Class amenity kit by Porsche

  • Lynn

    So far, I only have one amenity kit – a British Airways kit I got on a totally unexpected upgrade to Club World. I love it just for that reason! I use the pouch to carry my various flash drives and markers to class and am “saving” the Elemis toiletries. I’d love to have a kit from another airline!

  • Jake

    I have this great old TWA amenities kit that I got back when I was a kid flying with my parents. Besides case itself, I still own the deck of TWA playing cards that came with it!

  • Matt A

    My favorite is actually Turkish Airlines business class kit. It has those socks with grippers on the bottom which reminds me of when I wore them as a kid. :D

  • Ilija

    I have never had one. Wil use miles to visit family @ Europe. Thx

  • Rick

    I’ve only flown ANA so can’t compare but my wife loves the L’Occitane amenities

  • Sandeep B

    The Rimowa kits are probably the best looking ones in the sky

  • Michael

    Eva rimowa kit for sure. Like the color and shape

  • Seth

    I wish I could say I’ve had gobs of kits in my travels, but my favorite was Air France a few years ago. It had a great case that you could keep and use for years!

  • CVG_Traveler

    I love my Lufthansa A380 commemorative tin amenity kit!

  • Leigh

    The only amenities kit I’ve ever gotten was the BA Economy Plus kit, but I can’t complain about a sleep mask and ear plugs!

  • Elliott C Bäck

    The socks that come with them all!

  • Melinda

    I haven’t had one since the late 80s/early 90s (AA, BA and DL). I must’ve preferred the AA one because I saved it for 20 years. Nothing compared to how fancy they’ve gotten now. Btw, really enjoying your Australia posts. Keep up the great work!

  • Kesi Irvin

    Cathay Pacific on my trip from NYC to Hong Kong! Great socks

  • Andy C

    KLM! Not for anything in the kit, but for the Delft miniature houses that are an extension of the kit. I’m amassing quite the collection.

  • Greg

    I love ANA’s kits, particularly the pajamas that accompany them!

  • Jasmyne

    Never traveled first class but got some socks on South African airways! Hoping to win the united miles!

  • http://www.laviajeramorena.com/ Chanel @ La Viajera Morena

    I would use the Delta Amenity Kit with the Malin+Goetz lotion because my skin is always dry when I change climates :D

  • Pazpeaceman

    I love the air france amenity kit – it had everything I needed for a long haul flight, and it made my day to find one on every seat in…wait for it…economy!

  • LRZ

    My favorite amenity kit would be the one I might win…..I’ve never had one!

  • PRH

    Still have a Pan Am kit from the 80′s – sleep mask, socks, comb. Good stuff

  • Patty

    I was surprised that Singapore Airlines doesn’t have a cute amenity kit. But the slippers are warm. Hope this challenge can bring SIA inline with the other top airlines! I’m going to Brazil, could certainly use the miles to explore some special edition TAM World Cup amenity kits, if there is any.

  • Ryan

    Not really a “kit”, but I used to work in Thailand for a high school study abroad company which required a lot of travel between NYC and BKK. There is nothing better than the scent of those fresh warm towels passed out at the beginning of every Thai airways flight! I haven’t been back to see my friends in close to 5 years and I’m just about 9,500 miles short from a roundtrip flight to see them again. Whether I win this contest or not, this blog is definitely helping me get closer and closer to making it back!

  • Murillo Mathias

    I dig TAP’s environmentally correct kit.

  • Vikram

    My favorite is the EVA rimowa kit. Can’t beat the luggage shape!

  • Rob P

    Singapore Airlines Sothys kit for the Givenchy pajamas! Thank you!

  • Sanders

    Never had that one but the Malin + Goetz one from Delta sounds great!

  • AB

    Only flew first class on Delta a few times, but love the amenity kit. And the small Tumi pouch is awesome for carrying my toiletries on the next flight.

  • Nick

    I need one! I just flew UA from CDG-EWR in BF and got the other amenity kit

  • Steve

    Like many others her, I have never had an amenity kit, so this would be my first… And some awesome miles to boot!

  • SL – SFO

    I’ve never received a kit before, so this would be my favorite!

  • Linda

    EVA Air’s rimowa luggage kits!

  • Cory

    I don’t have a favorite. The most recent was Delta’s Tumi, and it might be the only one I can remember right now. So, I’ll say that one.

  • Ritam B.

    Lufthansa Rimowa kit – just something about those germans and their engineering!

  • Ryan Y. Kellett

    I’m partial to a nice pair of socks. Simple.

  • GDF

    Sitting in a middle seat in economy in a 747-400 flying AKL-LAX overnight, the personal reading light above my seat would not turn off. My favorite amenity kit was the one that the Qantas flight attendants opened to give me a blindfold so that I could sleep. :)

  • Martin Bartels

    I have yet to receive an amenity kit – let this be my first.

  • Chad

    I like the LH Rimowa kit. Very classic and unique look! You know the Germans always make good stuff.

  • Adam

    This would be my first one, which also would make it my favourite one

  • melissa

    Delta Tumi kit is the only one I’ve ever gotten so I’ll pick that

  • homerica7

    AA First Class with the IPad cases were pretty nice

  • Jessica

    I’ve only had the Delta first class amenity kit once, and I was underwhelmed, but I’d love to try a deluxe kit!

  • roddy

    Cathay Pacific pajamas

  • NVD

    I love my Thai amenity kit – it’s the perfect size and the beautiful rust color with leather trim make for an elegant pouch I reuse frequently.

  • Eric

    It’s all too simple, but Lufthansa’s kit with the socks is a favorite.

  • Aaron Holquin

    Does the pack of peanuts from Southwest Airlines count? If so that’s the best I’ve received! Saving up miles to try the stop over in Africa on a round trip ticket to Asia thing via United. I’m planing to do business class for the first half and then economy for second. I’m almost there, just have another 23k United Miles / UR points to accumulate. Extra United miles are always appreciated =)

  • Beersmith

    Amenity Kit? I have been flying for 40 years, and still never in First Class. I’m just happy to get Bischoff cookies! My first First Class trip is coming up in April – I’m looking forward to seeing what an amenity kit is!

  • Diego

    I actually like Copa Airlines’ amenity kit given that it’s more than I’d expect on medium haul.

  • Clark

    My favorite kit was the one I received on an Air France business class
    flight from Paris to JFK. It is not the best kit for sure but it was
    the most memorable. The flight was full and I was able to snag a seat in one of the few 2-seater setups in the mostly 3-4-3 configuration economy
    section. When I was checking in, I was asked if I would be willing to
    give up my seat so a couple could sit together. For my generosity, I
    would have had to move to an aisle seat in a 4-seater configuration.
    Not a fair exchange in my option but I said yes anyway. For whatever the
    reason, the computer did not allow the exchange. To make a long story
    short, I made it to my economy seat and the husband approached me later and asked if I would still do the switch. In exchange, he would give me
    his seat in business class!! The kit serves as a reminder that good
    deeds are not only rewarded in heaven but also rewarded in the form
    of a business class upgrade!

    I’m personally a huge fan of the Emirates kit in the Bulgari leather bag. Some of the items in side aren’t super high-quality, but the bag is beautiful. http://b-i.forbesimg.com/matthewstibbe/files/2013/08/Emirates-First-Class-amenity-kit-w480-h480.jpg

  • Richard

    Delta Tumi kit but I haven’t had many others to compare with.

  • John Ruda

    My favorite amenity kit if my ziploc bag that I take on long haul flights. My favorite item is my hydrating mist.

    I have not been lucky enough to get any kit since I haven’t traveled in business or first. But I remember traveling to Asia as a child and getting little toys like playing cards and puzzles. Those were nice :-)

  • phil

    Rimowa kit for me!!

  • Kevin C

    Only kit I have received was from Delta and I liked the one time use dental floss.

  • Ryan

    Delta Tumi kit is pure quality.

  • Pumpkin_Pie

    I’ve never gotten an amenity kit but I’ve had my eye on the Korean Air one. I often fly with them and they have great products!

  • JG

    My ELAL kit was pretty cool.

  • Elijah Nouvelage

    I hate to go with the obvious choice, but duh, the Delta Tumi amenity kit.

  • Jamey

    My favorite is the AA one. The case is actually useful after the flight.

  • iris

    I’ve actually never received an amenity kit. Hoping this will be my chance.

  • john

    I know it is cheesy, but i don’t mind the UA business first ones.

  • Dave

    Anything with an eye mask!

  • Joseph Alberts

    another in the “i’ve yet to receive an amenities kit” crowd, but those 10,000 miles would more than make up for it!

  • Dealsformelanie

    I’ll say Rimowa luggage-shaped kit but really I would have no idea. I could use 10,000 more miles exactly to get my 3 kids, husband, and me to China on united for the Chinese New Year next year. That would be our first international trip ever. 350,000 united miles is a HUGE number for us.

  • Joediver

    My Tumi FC amenity kit from Thai.

  • Kabukijuul

    I once got a russian wooden inlaid box in business class on Aeroflot back in the days of the USSR. Great souvenir!

  • Benett Lapray

    Psh, I wish I could say what my favorite amenity kit was. I recently got a couple chase cards and flew my wife and I to Hong Kong to do a study abroad. I wish we had enough points to fly first, but I’ll just have to live vicariously through the Points Guy, and possibly score a giveaway amenities kit!

  • Duane

    I have never received an amenity kit, but United’s GlobalFirst kit looks to be very useful and space saving.

  • mg

    South African Airways! Very practical and highly reusable!

  • shonuffharlem

    I have yet to fly first class or business class so any amenity kit works for me!

  • benstephens

    Easy – Rimowa. I like the Thai ones especially, but that’s probably irrelevant.

  • Jpgsg9

    Haven’t had the chance to travel on too many business or first but I had a good one from Thai a few years back with a nice small kit that I use for toiletries.

  • Bushwood

    Delta Tumi

  • sue

    the kit to tahiti. had some socks in it.

  • TheFlyingScholar

    I actually really loved my Thai Air J kit from Porsche Design!

  • Davey G. Johnson

    I’d have to say the best amenity kit ever was the one I got from TWA back in 1983. It’s not the fanciest one I’ve ever had, but those red sleeping socks were hard to beat. As the first kit I ever received, it’s more memorable than any of the examples that I’ve either taken with me or left on the plane since I started flying as an adult.

  • C2.Explorer

    eVA Hello kitty for my daughter

  • SFOPhD

    I like the AA First amenity kit because it doubles as a tablet case!

  • Mary E. ICN

    United Airlines Global First, flip bag, two pockets, and snap. I now use it to store travel documents. It’s perfect and lightweight. I, especially, like the mesh as I can see what’s inside the pockets.

  • Quoc

    Never had one, but don’t mind getting one!

  • James

    BA – Love the smell of the lotion. Also, the soft leather bottom.

  • Sean

    I like the LH, TG, NH, and BR Rimova cases, but also really appreciate the UA GF case — great for re-use.

  • Newo

    10,000 miles would help get at least one from United

  • RedRobster

    My fav so far is the ANA First Samsonite one – very useful and I’ve reused it the most since it opens up as a hanging toiletry bag!

  • Joe S

    Cathay Pacific kit – love the look!

  • Scott S.

    Cathay Pacific, no contest. Stylish pouch and separate kits tailored for men and women.

  • Or N

    My favorite inflight amenity kit has gotta be Emirates leather Bvlgary kit. It is just beautiful in my opinion.

  • Noy

    I love Thai airways Rimowa first class kits. It looks like a toy more than an amenity kit!

  • Joseph Lum

    Singapore Airlines Sothys kit and the Givenchy pajamas.

  • Grosscar

    AA- but I would like one from united!

  • Junlan

    The Delta Tumi Kit is the one I prefer…goes with my other Tumi bags…classy.

  • stuart

    British Airways First Class kit was very nice.

  • Tim

    My favorite “amenity kit” would pretty much have to be anything edible…. : )

  • Eric

    I’m in the group that hasn’t had one to compare!

  • flyer708

    Would love to add this to my collection!

  • Saurabh Agarwal

    Rimowa on Eva!!

  • EMOjunky

    I like Qatar Airways – they give you nice lounge pants that make for some good comfort on a long flight.

  • James

    I actually really enjoy my Delta Tumi kit. It’s well made, versatile stylish. I take it on every trip. Thanks bud!

  • keara

    wow they give these out for free? i had no idea. if i could use the miles to get that cool SF tin then that would have to rank as my favorite kit!!

  • Ben Wise

    I was only given one on TAM flight and this was… in economy!

  • Andy

    American, because it’s the only one I’ve gotten so far…

  • mm

    I like those Rimowa kits because its so durable and beatiful as well!

  • Jamie

    Tumi Delta kit is great for the practical and reusable case.

  • ASD

    TPG, my favorite amenity kit is the TG rimowa kit. Such a cool little bag!

  • CS

    Emirates First Class kit! I love the bag and all the bulgari products! Amazing.

  • Yati

    Japan Airlines with their Hello Kitty socks ;)

  • Linda

    I’m among those who have never received a kit, so the United one would be my favorite!

  • James Gaffney

    I have only received one, in AB economy!! Next week I will get my second, in Swiss Biz flat bed!! YAY

  • Mark

    I like Delta’s Tumi Kit

  • Carl Cervone

    Ethiopian Airlines. The amenity kit’s brand is unknown, but it features yellow flight socks and a red flip comb.

  • jfadds

    Delta’s Tumi Kit

  • Matt

    TG rimowa kit.

  • PC

    Never have had one

  • jimmymurphy

    Classic American soft-kit, such a useful holder for toiletries and is holding up well 3 years out!

  • Brett Albertson

    Delta’s kit from Tumi

  • Denise L

    I love the Delta Tumi kit because I love Tumi!

  • iwantmoremiles

    I have only received a couple and non are memorable.

  • Fawna

    Delta’s Tumi Kit!!!

  • dsamso

    I received my favorite amenity kit many years back on an Aer Lingus flight. They had green socks. I still have them :-)

  • Elizabeth

    I can only imagine my favourite, since I have never received one. I still use my Jet Blue blankie and pillow, though!

  • Mike R

    I’ve never had the opportunity to receive an amenity kit, I’m hoping to use the miles towards receiving one ASAP!

  • tparmar

    Oddly, i’ll say i liked the Virgin Atlantic economy kit with the drawstring bag. When i was a kid, i used the bag for almost a year and got compliments all the time!

  • TTN

    I don’t have any to compare to this kit.

  • Sruti

    I haven’t flown international first class or business to know amenity kits!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Jon Nason

    The amenity kit we bring along ourselves that says thank you to the flight attendants for assisting with our little boy (extra snacks, saving the empty row of seats together at the back to spread out in, etc.)

  • Brendan

    I haven’t received one yet – but I’ll probably have a favorite after my business class trip to Africa this summer on *A partners.

  • Kestie

    My favorite is the amenity kit from Air New Zealand because it makes me feel like I am already in NZ while I’m still on the plane.

  • Xavier

    Thai Airways Rimowa Amenity Kit

  • scott

    I’ve never had an amenity kit that I can remember since I haven’t flown in business in the last 15 or 20 years. I do remember they were not all that exciting but these commemorative tins look really cool

  • Annie

    I’ve only had an ANA one, and it was pretty ordinary. I’d lovet o get a Rimowa one though, perhaps from Thai or LH? :D

  • Michael

    I’ve only had 2, from Iberia and British, and British was by far the better one. But what good are the socks? They barely make it to my heels. The eyeshades are the best.

  • lori bremner

    I rarely get upgrades and when I do, they are n short flights, so no amenities kit! Would love to put the 10,000 miles towards an upgraded ticket!

  • Matt Mainey

    United global first from Denver to Rio De Janeiro Brazil…it had everything but the kitchen sink in that bag.I still have it and use it as a supplement to my carry-on and keep it restocked!

  • Randy

    Haven’t had an amenity kit yet. Thanks to the miles and points game though….soon!

  • ZB

    Air Canada, mainly because I actually use the container.

  • Brian Beneke

    I’m thrilled with all the amenity kits, so long as they have the footies to cover my socks!

  • TerryH

    Thai Air Tumi – case is great.

  • Justin

    I can’t remember the last time I picked up an amenity kit but I could definitely use the miles! So close to finishing off our Scotland/Ireland Star Alliance award flights in August. Thanks TPG!

  • ashley

    To me its Tumi,I think most collectable

  • Katey M

    I have never received an amenity kit but If i win this week the United Flyer Friendly campaign would definitely be my favorite! :)

  • Karl

    This looks fun! The only “real” amenity kit I ever got (I fly economy) was on AA from RDU to LHR. It had eyeshades, ear plugs, and 4 small squeeze tubes of lip balm, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.

    Other than that, I’ve gotten mini-amenities. An earplug/eyeshade set on Delta, and another set on Hawaiian. Clearly, the AA amenity kit was the best :)

  • Johnny

    My favorite so far was United Global First kit I got from Dulled to Beijing. It had so much useful stuff.

  • Candy

    My favorite so far was the Lufthansa First kit I got from Bangkok to Frankfurt. I just love the pajamas.

  • Sean

    I have never gotten one. I hope to real soon.

  • KR

    I’ve only experienced the United kits, which I always appreciate. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Chase

    I think United’s tins are a fun idea and I’d love to have one!

  • Rick Frendt

    Has to be the cushy eye-mask – the perfect tool for beating jet-lag!

  • fd2020

    Delta Tumi is the one I like.

  • Sean

    I’ve never received an amenity kit. Hopefully, this will be my first.

  • Zeke Kersey

    The only amenity kits I ever got were the pre-9/11 British Airways regular economy kits they used to give out. It was an eye shade, a couple of lotions I think, a toothbrush/toothpaste combo device, and the best part, really warm comfy socks in the same weave and color as the blankets they used to have. Those blankets were the warmest plain old airline blanket I’ve ever had.

  • Jon

    Can’t say I’ve had the luxury of receiving many kits…but I the one I did get was pretty sweet – Delta Tumi

  • Bri

    ANA for the Ginza products.

  • Sandeep Kor

    Never had one, though I have seen a 1990ies Air France First Class amenity kit which my father-in-law had – best thing I liked from it was the neatly folded shawl and the comfortable eye-cap. I still use that eye-cap on every flight I take.

  • Guest

    The Lufthansa kit a few years ago was my favorite!

  • Michelle Randolph Turner

    The Lufthansa kit has always been my favorite!

  • Michael Paul

    I like southwest’s kit: bag of peanuts and a drink.

  • Terry

    The chapstick in most kits because I always forget it when I fly.

  • Toby

    I’ve never had one! I’d love to see what it entails

  • Neb the Serbian

    Lufthansa Business Class Kit toiletry bag is very compact but practical to be used as a toiletry bag for overnight trips.

  • Taddox

    My favorite amenity kit I got was on Ethiopian Airlines. I had a 16 hour flight from Dc to Addis and I used everything in the kit, including the warm yellow socks.

  • Rick

    Hopefully this summer I will know what that is!

  • Brian S

    Unfortunately I’ve never received an amenity kit…but I’ll use the 10k miles to hopefully get my first!

  • Max

    Never received one before! Maybe I just haven’t traveled enough!

  • Helen S

    I’ve had only the Delta amenity kit when I was lucky enough to be bumped up to Business class once. So, for now, Delta has to be my favorite. I didn’t even know that amenity kits existed.

  • Mark

    The Lufthansa Kit is my fav due to its practicality.

  • drz

    KLM because they used to give out small Blue Delfts

  • Rharraka

    The new PYE pajamas in First Class Cathay Pacific — still enjoying them at home.

  • Joe Catul

    The EVA Rimowa kit looks great :)

  • Kim

    I’ve never had an amenity kit, but hope to change that on an upcoming trip to Europe. Those United points would certainly help with that!

  • Alford

    The only one I’ve ever gotten was the American Airlines amenity package. It was pretty nice. Much better than the nothing we get in coach.

  • Keith

    I’ve only experienced Business Class amenities on United, Lufthansa, and British Airways. Nothing sticks with me as being noteworthy. I just liked the lay flat seats.

  • Erica Kim

    My favorite and only amenity kit! United’s philosophy set. I love using the lip balm afterwards, because always remind me of my awesome first time flying first class.

  • William

    We received Air France kits last year(my first and only) and while small it had some nice footies and the sleep mask that really helped

  • Kari

    My favorite amenity kit will be the one I receive from BA this fall as it will be my first!

  • http://www.thirdperception.com/ Julie B.

    Never yet had the privilege to receive an amenity kit – but if I did I would dig that United one, LA is my home. And the 10k miles would help me bump up to first class for my New Zealand trip! (:

  • David

    I have never received an amenity kit so I suppose my favorite one would be…any of them!

  • LuvVacations

    I flew Thai Airways a few years ago and had a fantastic opportunity to
    fly 1st class, where they provided a nice hard plastic zipper pouch with 2
    webbing side pockets and expanded upon opening to view non-oily body lotion, face mist, and a few other items.

  • JAY

    We have only flown on Delta and kinda like theirs. Sure would like to try another airline’s amenity kit.

  • Meredith

    My favorite so far since I haven’t received many is the United Kits.

  • ElectionAttorney

    I love the Eames Office kit on AA because of the amenity bag can be used for my tablet! Thanks.

  • baelfire

    my favorite would have to be the eva air rimowa luggage kit. the mini suitcase is just so useful for putting all the electronics and wires necessary when i travel

  • ennelai

    I appreciate that Jet Blue hands out ear plugs and sleeping masks on red-eye flights even for us folks in economy!

  • Vince Bacalan

    I’ve only received it twice, both from Turkish Airlines on way to and from Rome last year. Can’t remember which leg of the trip, but one kit was encased in a nice tin with chapstick, eyemask, footies, earplugs, toothbrush/paste. I still used it and the tin can survive some harsh travel conditions (i.e., check in luggage conditions). I was really surprised because I snagged that airfare for (I thought) cheap (I flew economy on both legs of the trip). Maybe I can start a collection. A United amenity kit would be awesome!

  • Keith

    The custom PJ’s on Cathay Pacific.

  • Ada Chen

    I’ve been flying on EVA since I was born (literally, my first flight ever was when I was a few months old) so I love their Rimowa kits!

  • joshb8403

    Delta’s Tumi kit looks amazing! Have never been lucky enough to get one!

  • Lynn C

    THAI’s Porsche design is my favorite.

  • Yichuan

    Thai Airways’ kit is pretty nice. I Like it.

  • Barry Franklin

    I like Delta ones, because that’s what I usually fly.

  • meghanb904

    Flew EVA airways last year from Taipei to SFO and loved the little luggage kit! Use it to this day!

  • JB Wilcox

    I’m going to have to go with Emirates’ kit.. the Bulgari leather bag is enough for me.

  • JM Lee

    Love the Eva Green Rimowa kit!

  • Adam

    I have never received an amenity kit so this will be my favorite once I win it!

  • Erika Katayama

    Simple but so useful- American Airlines gave me a toothbrush and toothpaste. My teeth were so happy!

  • Tom

    My favorite by far is British Airways’ first class kit designed by Anna Hindmarch. It may not be filled with the most goodies (Emirates gave one out that was basically a mini-Duane Reade) but it’s such an elegant design. Unfortunately mine is grey, but I’ve seen them in navy blue as well.

  • Dan

    Korean Air’s face mist spray is a bit strange but oddly refreshing after a long flight!

  • Mike C

    I’ve never had one so would love this

  • Edgar

    Air France’s children games kits with colouring books, bracelets and a pilot badge.

  • ESAC

    I loved the tin boxes Lufthansa handed out when the A380 was introduced. Similar to the ones in this United “Friendly” campaign.

  • Peter D

    The old TWA kits with the washcloth, comb, and toothbrush.

  • Jason Chan

    Lufthansa has a tin one that I really enjoyed. That would probably be my favorite.

  • Judygrin

    I have only received a few but like Lufthansa’s . I think their eye
    masks are more comfortable than some I have seen and I really love their
    pajamas !

  • Eric

    Air Canada’s Escents Aromatherapy skin care products

  • snakedoc1

    My favorite amenity kit is from Lufthansa. Must be my German heritage!

  • Bruce

    I’m a United flyer. I don’t get to ride in the int’l premium cabin. The UA kit would be great!

  • Myron ‘Sourmilk’ Merced

    I’ve never received an amenity kit, either…but I’ll put those United miles to good use!

  • Liz

    I received my first one on Lufthansa a few months ago! Would love to put those extra United points towards another one!

  • Aya

    I’ve never received one before so would love to win this!

  • Bobbybobs

    Cathay Pacific Murad amenity kit was my favorite.

  • Brennan

    I’ve never received an amenity kit, but would love to win this one! 10,000 United miles wouldn’t be too bad either ;)

  • Lauren

    My surprise upgrade into my first ever business class flight (after only flying with them TWICE) gave me an Etihad Korres amenity kit I absolutely loved

  • Brian B.

    Cathay Pacific’s Murad amenity kit!

  • Christopher Aiello

    I got slippers (among other goodies) once during my AA flight. I thought it was kind of cool that they were basically encouraging me to take off my shoes and stay a while… ;)

  • Ryan K

    I have never received an amenity kit besides a few turkish airlines kits I won… so I guess those were my favorite.

  • SajerGuy

    I love the Cathay kit and PJs!

  • Nathan

    Boeing 747 – UA businessFirst amenity kit, so I am up for this one! First the kit then maybe I get to fly it next…. :)

  • Tricia

    Like many others, I have never had the privilege of an amenity kit, even though I have flown quite a bit. I have, however, bought numerous kits at yard sales, if that counts:)

  • Elaine

    Delta’s Tumi kit!

  • RRR

    An amenity kit would be awesome to travel with.

  • sriram201

    turkish airlines mostly because it’s the only one I have received so far

  • Russell

    Not to be crass, but on an old AOM French Airlines flight from LAX to Papeete Tahiti, the first class attendant offered a shoulder massage which I remember distinctly. I have no idea what the bag of goodies was! Too bad that airline is no longer flying.

  • mizliz

    I’ve never had an amenity kit, so I’m pretty sure my first would be my favorite!

  • Colin

    Any of the Rimowa luggage kits!

  • bill twombly

    tumi kit is great

  • Dan R

    My favorite was from Air France. Of course it was the only one I’ve gotten.

  • Ncsam

    United GlobalFirst for the Philosophy products (and coupon)!

  • Ivan

    I will find out when I fly Lufthansa Business next week, but I have never received an amenity kit but would love to see one :)

  • cabetca

    My fave amenity kit was the one offered by Qantas when I flew SFO to SYD 1st class on points. Probably the only 1st class amenity kit I’ll ever get!

  • Lita

    I’ve never had the pleasure of receiving one, to be honest, but I do fancy the new one British Airways is putting out with Aromatherapy Associates!

  • Julie Smith

    I’ve never flown in anything other than coach, so I’d love to see an amenity kit in person, and I’d love the 10,000 United miles even more!

  • Scott

    Definitely the Delta Tumi kits!

  • Nguyen

    I have never received an airline amenity kit. I would love to get one. Thanks.

  • Josh

    The favorite is the only one I’ve gotten, United Business Class from IAD to FRA, I use the sleep mask when I sleep at home now.

  • disqus_9MQL1yBSdm

    Qantas Airlines amenity kit came with a cool round pouch and I got a pajama to use during flight and can take home as souvenir!

  • Ernest S.

    Can’t say that I’ve ever had an amenity kit, so I would love the opportunity to experience one for the first time!

  • Uri Hadelsberg

    Delta’s amenity kit!

  • Phil

    Well I have not had one but the Delta Tumi one sounds great! … And I would just LOVE those miles for a special trip!

  • Jansen

    Cathay first amenity. Love the pajamas.

  • benstephens

    Definitely Rimowa on TG, LH, etc.

  • mrsnarbonne

    Of the kits my husband has brought home, I like the soft cases the best because they are easier to pack. I reuse them to separate & hold the kids’ stuff when traveling. The eyeshades and earplugs and tissues always come in handy!

  • Hank

    Never had an Amenity Kit. Seems like a cool concept.

  • WBTM

    Delta’amenity kit; good products!

  • Siobhan

    Mhy boyfriend brought back a Swiss ammenity kit from a business trip. The ear plugs sleep mask and socks really come in handy on my economy flights. My favorite Items from the kit were the awesome hand cream that works so well in the dry northeast winters and the tooth paste which is more mint flavored than other brand I’ve come across.

  • Mark Schroeder

    Simple – Any!

  • dwh

    I rather enjoyed the Lufthansa Rimowa kit in First Class last year

  • Cassie

    Never had one before! Interesting to read the comments to see what people like.

  • Marilyn

    I love the American Airlines kit that doubles as a tablet case. Something you can really use after you are finished with the contents.

  • ASW

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who hasn’t had an amenity kit when flying. I really like the graphics on the United kits that are pictured in this post; It would be cool to display one of those on my desk.

  • Rachel

    I have only flown business class, but love that United has philosophy products the perfect size for my purse.

  • Brad

    Delta’s upgrade to Tumi is nice. I like the kits – they come in handy after a long flight.

  • Mnsotn

    My favorite Vanity Kit is actually what accompanies the kit and that item is the minuature Delft Dutch houses that you receive with the vanity kit for flying Business with KLM. They are wonderful display items and ready reminders of trips to wonderful/exotic places. (Oh and did I mention they have Dutch Gin in them?)

  • Victoria

    I loved the philosophy products in a United pack shared with me by a friend after his business trip to shanghai.

  • Neuron68

    Loved the Singapore Airlines kit on trip to Hong Kong some years back.
    BTW love your website and your mission! THX for all the ideas in support of the flying herd.

  • curtmuell

    My fave is the Turkish Airlines kit. Is it the richest? No. But it’s the most generous, handed to folks in economy. The shape is also handy for a pencil case afterward.

  • rachel

    I’ve never received one, either! Or at least one that was worth remembering…

  • Zack

    Swiss amenity kits – top of the line.

  • Chelsea

    I haven’t ridden first class yet but I am going on a work trip in business class in June!

  • Laura T.

    I always fly coach, so I never get an amenity kit, but my brother flies Business through his job, so he saves all the amenity kits and gives them to me! Yay! One of my favorites is Swiss Airlines, with small samples from the über expensive Valmont skincare line.

  • Dan M

    My favorite (and possibly only) amenity kit has to be from Turkish Airlines, especially in comfort class. You get everything you need to make the flight from JFK to IST better. I believe you get a pair of slipper socks, lip balm/ lotions, toothbrush/paste, and a few small sundry items including a blindfold.

  • Joshua Lewis

    I’ve never had an amenity kit!

  • Francisco

    I’m looking forward to my first amenity kit on Iberia Business Plus this Spring. I’m hopeful that this will be the first of many thanks to the strategies I have learned from reading TPG’s blogs.

  • Colleen K

    While I’d love to get my hands on a Rimowa kit (!!), I’ve found that Cathay’s agnes b. amenity kits are great. The Jurlique products are scented but not overbearing during the flight and post-flight, I’ll use the pouches to organize junk at the bottom of my purse or hold all of my chargers in my carry on during my next flight. Win win.

  • Nihir

    The Etihad kit is my favorite with La Prairie toiletries, and a chic leatherette bundle. Small but effective, just the way every frequent flyer likes the travel..

  • Susan Van Dyke

    My favorite is any that involves socks (Turkish Arirlines was the best I’ve seen so far). My feet are always so cold on planes.

  • FlavCity

    The Spa brand face cleanser in the AA biz class amenity kit comes in handy after a 9 hour flight. No one wants to make a first impression with an oil slick on their face!

  • http://www.safacon.com/ Safacon

    American Airlines first class kit. It is the only one I have gotten so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I was satisfied with the quality of its contents and still use the case as it snugly fits my tablet.

  • Alicia

    The Rimowa kit in Thai First Class is amazing – shame about the contents; cheap L’Occitane and overwhelmingly stinky Hermes cologne and cream

  • curtmuell

    Who was the lucky winner of this giveaway? I don’t remember seeing it posted.
