In the last week, premium cabin travelers across both sides of the Atlantic have had something new and exciting to look forward to. Both JetBlue and British Airways have announced new amenity kits for passengers. British Airways will be to introducing a new kit for First Class passengers from luxury UK store Liberty, and JetBlue has announced new kits for its Mint service from luxury brand Hayward and Hopper.
What to Expect with the new kit from British Airways
The British Airways kit will come in two versions — men and women. The women’s version is a floral print with a small wrist lanyard, while the men’s is black with a stylish paisley lining. The kits will first be introduced on the London to Los Angeles A380 route, before being rolled out across the rest of the airline’s First Class network.
The women’s kit includes products from Aromatherapy Associates. Orange Flower Hand Lotion, Triple Rose Renewing Moisturizer, and Renewing Rose Cleanser are included among the usual contents of toothpaste and brush, deodorant, lip balm, eye mask, ear plugs, socks, and a hair brush and pen.
The men’s kit will include the same grooming amenities as the women’s, in addition to a razor, Revitalizing Moisturizer, and Refinery Shave Gel.
Over the year, BA will roll out more prints so that frequent fliers can have their own collection.
What to Expect with the new kit from JetBlue
JetBlue’s Mint service is upping its game in the Premium travel class with new amenity kits from designer Marin Hopper, daughter of legendary Hollywood actor and Bad Boy Dennis Hopper and actress Brooke Hayward. JetBlue will offer a blue denim kit for women called the Hayward kit, and a light canvas kit for men called the Hopper kit. The company aims to offer kits that epitomize “East Coast sophistication mixed with West Coast ease.”
Both kits will include all-natural, American-made lip balms and refreshing towelettes in addition to all the other usual basics. What makes the kits unique is that each one will also include screen cloths illustrated with images, courtesy of the Hopper Art Trust archives. All the photographs were shot by non-other than Dennis Hopper.
Both kits have an artisanal feel to them, and the women’s kit has a delicate brass Zipper that was designed by Leyland Hayward, grandfather of designer Marin Hopper. JetBlue plans to roll out the kits over the next few months to all its Mint class routes.
We hope you don't plan on changing your travel plans just to check out these new kits, but if you happen to experience either product and receive one of these new kits let us know! The stories behind the kits are fascinating.
