United unveils limited amenity kits

16 Jan 2015 by GrahamSmith

United Airlines is offering two new limited edition amenity kits for its Global First and Business First customers.

Until the end of March, or while supplies last, the carrier will provide special edition amenity tins to premium passengers on international flights departing its seven mainland US hubs and Honolulu.

Each tin will feature the skyline of London, Frankfurt, Toyko, Beijing, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, Dubai or Honolulu and contain Philosophy brand skin-care products and socks, an eye mask, toothbrush, toothpaste, tissue and ear plugs.

Global First and Business First passengers on international flights arriving in the US will continue to receive the airline's traditional amenity kits.

From April until the end of June, or again while supplies last, United will offer amenity kits with a PGA Tour golf theme on international flights departing and arriving in the United States.

These kits "come in the form of shoe bags [and] will include traditional amenity kit items plus tees, United-branded Bridgestone Golf balls and a promotional offer for a future Bridgestone Golf purchase".

Mileage Plus members can receive discounts on starting times and golf club rentals at properties within the PGA Tour's TPA Network.

Last month, United revealed it is trialling a new mobile app which allows members to use their smartphones to pay for items at US retailers, and earn Mileage Plus miles for their purchases (see news, December 5).
