Inside the Amenity Kit: Air New Zealand's Business and Premium Economy Pouch
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:
Hopping across the Pacific is not a short, quick flight by any means. Thus, any little added comfort is a welcome bonus for passengers on flights that approach 12 or 13 hours, depending on the route. With this in mind, Air New Zealand provides an amenity kit both quirky and functional.
Passengers gearing up for extended period of time on the airline's 777-300s are greeted with a small, light grey felt pouch filled with goodies to ensure a comfy flight. We flew in Premium Economy one way and Business Class the other on a recent trip, and were offered the same exact amenity kit for both.
While it looks basic, it's actually pretty neat and the pouch itself can be easily reused after arrival. The soft felt is both environmentally friendly and will be a perfect size and material for keeping travel documents safe, or even housing a small tablet.
If you're lucky enough to score some of the plush seats on these flights to New Zealand, here's what you can expect tucked inside your slim-line kit:
· Clarins HydraQuench face cream
· Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
· colorful striped socks to keep your feet warm and looking cool
· eyemask with a cheeky quote like Beware I sleep walk and Are we there yet?
· toothbrush & toothpaste
· ear plugs
· Air New Zealand-branded pen
