If you’re on an overnight flight, a considerably long flight or lucky enough to score a business- or first-class seat on a plane, you’ll likely receive an in-flight amenity kit, which might contain travel-sized versions of basic necessities like an eye mask, earplugs and hand lotion. Here are some of the industry’s best amenity kits.


Delta Air Lines
Delta’s TUMI amenity kits that are given out to business-class passengers have undergone a recent makeover and now include new products from fragrance company Le Labo. Kits also include a pair of socks from Bombas, and for each pair of socks given to passengers, Bombas donates a pair to Covenant House to help homeless youth.


United Airlines
United passengers are gifted with amenity kits that include a small bottle of hand sanitizer and toothpaste, just like most other kits, but what sets United apart is its charitable use of unused kits. United flight attendants collect the unused items from unused kits and donate them to Clean the World ,where volunteers repackage them into new hygiene kits for women, children and veterans around the world.


Virgin Atlantic
Widely known for its style and flair, Virgin Atlantic’s amenity kits are no different. Named Goodie Bags, they come with compostable toothbrushes, pens and REN Clean skincare products.


Four new designs for Finnair’s amenity kits were introduced in March and feature eco-friendly touches like cardboard bands around the outside of the kits, wax paper wrapping and cornstarch bio-plastic toothbrushes.


Icelandair recently launched four new amenity kits for Saga Premium seats that celebrate four of Iceland’s indigenous animals: puffin, arctic fox, Icelandic horse and raven. The vegan leather kits include items like biodegradable toothbrushes and socks made from recyclable materials.
