Japan Airlines has launched a new range of amenity kits for premium passengers on long-haul services departing Tokyo Narita and Haneda airports.
Italian fashion house Etro – which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year – has designed airline amenity kits for the first time, with a first class bag available on flights departing and arriving into Japan, and a business class kit offered on flights departing Japan.
Meanwhile business class passengers on flights arriving into Japan will receive a kit designed by Japanese firm Tatsumura Textile, featuring a fabric woven with a traditional Kikko tortoise shell pattern and ornamented with a Setsugekka (Snow Moon Flowers) textile.
The colour of the fabric will change every three months to depict the four seasons in Japan – blue for spring, red for summer, white for autumn and black for winter.
The first class kit will be offered inflight from mid-March, on routes between Tokyo Narita and New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, and between Tokyo Haneda and New York, San Francisco, London and Paris.
The business class bags will feature on flights from late February, on routes between Narita and New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas Fort Worth, Vancover, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Moscow, Sydney and Melbourne, between Haneda and New York, San Francisco, London and Paris, and between Kansai International airport and LA.
