I still use my Delta Businesselite amenity kit as my regular toilet kit when I travel. Mine included a toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, razor, socks, eye shades, hand cream, and lip balm. It's really great!

Yeah, some airlines give you socks in Economy class. I love them because (as a previous poster said), you can take your shoes off and pop the socks over and not have to worry about dirtying your own when you go to the lav. this way you dont have to worry about putting your shoes on either eahc time... good esp. on a 24 hour flight like Syd- London
Biz class and F class I think are pretty much the same. Seeing as I never have flown F class I cant vouch for this ... but in Biz class you usually get toothpaste, tooth brush, comb, socks, eye mask, and for women some smellies like handcream and somethign else, and men get a razor with shaving cream, and then also lip balm and Air NZ gave me once a facial mist spray which was really refreshing!!!
I think the only diff between F and J class is the quality and brand of some of the amenities!

Well i guess that is a good idea to give you socks then, because then you dont have to worry about yours. Are they good socks? Are they comfortable? what do these amenity kits come in? Are they in a bag of some sort? Who has the best amenities? who has the greatest amount of amenities? does anyone know im curious as to who has the bets amenities!thanks

Delta, back in the days of international first class, had an amenity kit that could become a case for compact discs or dvd's. I picked up a couple of them about 12 years ago, and still use them. Most of the rest of them I bring home for my kids.

In BA's Club World, the amenity kit includes lotions, lip balm, and toothpaste from Molton Brown. I have become hooked on the MB products, sold in the U.S> only at high end places such as Nieman-Marcus.

Here are some examples:
CATHAY PACIFIC First Class gives out: Slippers and Eyeshades in a Silver Cloth Bag. There are 2 colours(to choose from) for each amenity kit for Men and Women. The products currently used now are Declor of France. Products used in the past include La Prairie and Erno Laszlo. Kits for men would include EarPlugs, Toothbrush and toothpaste, Shaver, Shaving Cream, Facial Moisturizer, Lip Balm, Eye Gel, Face Cloth, Comb and sometimes a cologne. Products for women will be geared for women of course, so a different product range is offered without the Shaver and Shaving cream obviously and substituted with Hand/Body Cream, Brush and Facial Mist. CX First Class lavatories offer either La Prarie or Erno Laszlo facial mists, cologne, face wash and moisturizers.
CATHAY PACIFIC Business Class gives out: Sockettes and Eyeshades enclosed in their repsective 2 colour to choose from, kits for men and women. The current product range comes from Biotherm of France. Past product offerings included L'Occident of France, and Crabtree & Evelyn. Amenities are about the same as found in First Class but obviously quality is better in First. CX Business Class lavatories offer Evian facial mists, biotherm cologne for men, facial moisturizers.. and the usual toothbrush etc.
CATHAY PACIFIC Economy Class passengers receive sockettes and eyeshades upon request.
SINGAPORE AIRLINES only offers amenity kits for First Class passengers on flights exceeding 9 hours. Their products used are currently Bvlgari of Italy enclosed in a Givency Bag. (How unappropriate is that???)
BRITISH AIRWAYS has the nicest products for their FIRST CLASS passengers. Men get NKSpace products, and women get Dr. Haushka products. I've seen people trying to sell these First Class amenity kits on E-Bay for $250 each as they are so sought after by collectors. Men's kits are kept in a square Green Bag depicting Grass. Women's kits are kept in a Red Bag depicting Roses. The products are stored in categories: BEFORE TAKEOFF, DURING FLIGHT and AFTER FLIGHT to offer products that one should use.
Oh yes, all carriers above also give out PYJAMAS (to keep) for their First Class passengers. CATHAY PACIFIC has one of the nicest. Beige. BA's comes in Grey, and SINGAPORE AIRLINES in Light Blue by Givency.

I remember on a flight about 7 years or so ago onboard a Qantas flight from Los Angeles to Sydney they gave out little kits in economy. If my memory is correct it included a pair of socks/slippers, toothpaste and toothbrush, eye shades, and a razor I believe. Does anybody know if they still provide those to economy passengers on Trans Pac routes? Flying United down to Australia last June I know they didn't give out anything then.
Also I remember Qantas handed out a little entertainment bag to children. It came in a backpack that had the Qantas Logo on it and included a deck of cards, coloring book and crayons with a few other goodies. Do they still provide that to the little children or is it strictly upon request.
Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

The kit I was mentioning was a "hand out" on the Portland to Nagoya flight. I used to use that flight frequently (from CVG-PDX-NGO). I don't recall the CD case in Biz Elite. I just remember it from the days of 3-class international MD-11's.
On a different note, as Delta dumped pacific flights from PDX, I wish they would have picked them up in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati to Nagoya flight was always full of Toyota people moving between headquarters in Japan and their facilities in Georgetown, KY.

CAL's BusinessFirst amenity kit included the notice "If you desire to shave, ask the flight attendant for a razor." I didn't, but I wonder if the FA would have asked for it back after use. I guess it's a potential weapon.
I love long German words like 'Freundschaftsbezeigungen'.

thats interssting, on flights out of ZRH to the USA Delta used to hand
out a big, nice amenity kit in first class. they never used the cd case
the first time i ever saw the cd kit was in 99 on a biz elite flight from
ZRH to ATL.
chautauquasaab tells us that the "cd case" handed out in first class on
the point is, that chatauquasaab is talking about pazific flights and
i am talking about transatlantic flights...

On the subject of playing cards:
Above no one has mentioned (except Dinker225) anything about recieving playing cards. First of all I am assuming then that these are not included in most amenity packs then - correct? I have played many card games using KoreanAir and Delta etc. playing cards my friends have picked up in their travels. Where do you get these from? Do all airlines have these available? Are they complimentary? Can I request them from a FA?
Also, what are you allowed to take off an aircraft? I have many inflight magazines and a few safety cards. I know you are allowed to take the magazines, but was it wrong of me to take the safety cards? Also, I am pretty sure that airlines don't like you to take home the headphones, but could I if I wanted to? Would it be wrong to take them? Anything else I can take with me from a flight?
