#TBT – First In-Flight Amenity Kit

Here it is, my first in-flight amenity kit dating back 11 years ago. The crazy thing is that this kit was provided in economy class!  My college friends and I purchased Virgin Atlantic tickets to Europe in 2003 when they (along with BA and American) were running a buy-one-get-one free promotion during the international travel slump in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Inside the drawstring bag from Virgin Atlantic was a smaller pouch, a notepad and pen, tissues, socks, eye mask, headphones, ear plugs, toothbrush, and toothpaste. Quite a bit more impressive than the kit provided on my recent Virgin Atlantic flight in Upper Class (thanks to points now)…

  1. That’s funny. I just flew VS from LAS-MAN and was surprised to get an amenity kit in Economy. The contents were virtually identical to what you’ve pictuted here for the UC pack – the only difference is the enclosing bag.
