American Airlines is rolling out updated Cole Haan amenity kits on its flights this month, and we at TPG got a chance to check them out before they hit the skies. There are four kits that American Airlines provided us to test out, each with a red-and-black motif.

Transcontinental Business Class and Premium Economy

The simplest kit is for transcontinental business class and international premium economy passengers, and includes an eye mask, earplugs, socks, bag of Scope and a “refreshing” travel kit.

Routes: You’ll be able to find these kits in business class on American Airlines’ premium transcontinental flights between New York’s JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO). Also, you’ll find the same kits on American Airlines’ international premium economy routes. Considering the airline now has at least 70 aircraft with premium economy, these routes have become too extensive to list.

Transcontinental First Class

A slightly nicer kit is being stocked for passengers in first class on some of AA’s transcontinental flights. The kit includes an eye mask, earplugs, socks, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and an “uplifting” travel kit.

Routes: You’ll be able to find these kits in first class on American Airlines’ premium transcontinental flights between New York’s JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO).

International Business Class

The next step up are the kits provided on international business class flights. These kits include an eye mask, earplugs, socks, a pen, tissues, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and a larger “refreshing” travel kit.

Routes: The kits will be stocked in the front cabin on most American Airlines international flights. However, flights to Canada, most of Mexico and the Caribbean don’t qualify as “international flights” for most service elements.

International First Class

The top-of-the-line kit is provided to international first class passengers, and includes an eye mask, earplugs, socks, a pen, tissues, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a mini shoe shine kit, and a larger “deluxe” travel kit.

Routes: It’s going to be hard for you to find these in the skies considering that American Airlines only has a few international destinations with first class, and only operates 20 Boeing 777-300ERs with international first class service.
