If you've been lucky enough to fly internationally in a First or Business Class seat, then you know it's quite the treat and not only because of free-flowing champagne or the extra legroom. Some bonus fun comes in the form of a special gift, an amenity kit. Sometimes these amenity kits contain the basicseye shades, socks, ear plugs, toothbrushbut in the case of Emirates, the kits are a luxury sampler.
Here's our peek inside the elusive first class amenity kits for both ladies and men who cough up lots of cash (or frequent flyer points) to fly up front in the airline's A380s. We should mention that both kits are Bulgari-branded and chock-full of stuff that will last beyond your time onboard the plane.

Economy doesn't look too painful
There's something new in the air. Smell it? That's the scent of a refreshed American Airlines and their shiniest new toy: the Boeing 777-300ER. AA is the first US airline with the plane and we just stepped off one of its first flights. So let's talk about it.
The Jaunted Series on American's Shiny New Toy
1. The New Hotness
2. Getting High
3. The Final Word
Over the past several days, we've shared what's new inside the American 777-300ER and what happens during the flight, but now it's time for a final judgement and what you need to know for when you're all set to jet.
Although we flew in Business Class (window, seat 7A if you're looking to snag the same), we made a point of spending time back in Economy (Main Cabin) as well, to get to know the new bird in for both the premium and budget travelers.
If your international travel plans are on Delta AND in the pointy end of the plane any time after the end of this month, there is a good chance you will be handed a hot new amenity kit by the flight attendants. With a little help from premium luggage maker, Tumi, and super cool apothecary brand, Malin+Goetz, the airline will be helping their passengers get comfy while keeping them in style.
The flash new kits consist of a Tumi-branded bag made from an abrasion-proof ballistic nylon fabric set to stand the test of time and look sharp after many, many flights. Even the contents have a sense of stylethe eye-mask will sport the same Tumi fabric.

Though to us sitting up front is still something for special occasions or mileage redemptions, it's always reassuring to know the slippers and champagne are there on the other side of the curtain. That’s why we’re pleased to hear that American Airlines is getting ready to up the ante on some of their premium class freebies.
We already knew that the carrier is set to go all out with the interior upgrades and finishes on their brandy new Boeing airplanes, and now they’re turning their attention to the little things. For the most part the refreshed goodies will arrive on international flights headed to spots in Europe, Asia, and Latin America (so nearly all over).
The new amenity kits for first class passengers will be filled to the brim with Dermalogica products, and the whole thing can serve double duty as a case for your tablet device. New slippers, mimosas, and an extra pillow round out the offerings.
Who doesn't like free stuff, especially when it comes to complimentary items on flights? As rare as a gratis pillow or warm snack is these days, it's nice to see some airlines offering more than just extra legroom in Premium Economy. Specifically, on long-haul flights with their brand new Premium Economy seats, Cathay Pacific passes out little amenity kits.
Though they're not stuffed with the little lux lotions and lip balms of the Business and First Class kits, they do come complete with an eyemask, socks, toothbrush/toothpaste, mints and earplugs. To liven it up a bit, Cathay has even just now introduced new pouches for the kits, branded with a funky design from Hong Kong design and homewares brand Goods of Desire (G.O.D.).
