Delta made a splash with an update to its amenity kits back in June, thanks to the addition of Le Labo products and the reduction of plastic. The Tumi-branded kits have been gradually phased in around the network all summer, and now there’s an exciting new addition to look forward to this fall.

Come September, Delta is bringing Bombas socks to all of its Delta One amenity kits. Bombas is a popular sock company with a “buy one, give one” model, donating more than 20 million pairs of socks to orgnizations helping homeless people across the US. If you’re flying on Delta One in September, you’ll get a pair of Bombas socks in your amenity kit — and you can feel good about it, knowing that the airline is donating another pair to someone in need. As part of the new partnership, Bombas will donate 300,000 pairs of specially-designed socks to Covenant House. For more than 40 years, Covenant House has provided care and services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked and exploited youth throughout the United States.

Delta has also been a long-standing supporter of Covenant House, providing volunteer support throughout the year to help homeless youth. In fact, many of the airline’s top executives participate in the “Executive Sleep Out” where business leaders spend a night on the streets to show their solidarity.

Additionally, the airline is promising to bring in more onboard enhancements in the near future. The company heard your frustrations about the performance of its current LSTN headphones, and is looking into new earbuds and headsets.
