Inside the Amenity Kit: Cathay Pacific Business Class (Men)
We come across some downright awesome airline amenity kits in our travels, and the surprises of each zippered pouch can often make or break comfort on a premium flight. With this in mind, here's to our new series: Inside the Amenity Kit, wherein we unzip, unwrap, and expose the loot inside:
Traveling from North America or Europe to Hong Kong means a long flight no matter which way you play it, but it's HK's hometown airline Cathay Pacific that leads in premium plush to make the hours pass a little faster.
Up in business class, Cathay keeps passenger happy with lie-flat seats (all with aisle access), many-course meals complete with signature drinks, and luxe little amenity kits.
Just after take-off on a recent flight, we were presented with a black and gold bag filled with travel-sized potions and a few other accessories. The airline has called upon French fashion designer Agnès B to outfit the business class kits, and each pouch is gender-specific.
Once unzipped, we found the standard socks, ear plugs, toothpaste, and Agnès B-branded eye-shade, toothbrush and shoehorn. The airline has also partnered with SoCal skincare line Murad for body lotion and shave cream.
In a nod to Mother Earth, the bag is not only reusable, but the shoehorn and toothbrush are biodegradable.
