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’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 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.

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors.
