I find it quite amusing (and at the same time quite sad) how just a few years ago you expected a little amenity kit filled with those items in the post above plus maybe even a pair of socks or slippers. Now we see this as a novelty and a luxury.
Quite sad. But hey, at least B6 is reintroducing the amenity kit concept in cattle class!

Thanks for the pictures. Certainly puts jetBlue head & shoulders above the competition in red-eye transcons. While UA offers pillows and blankets, they don't offer anything remotely close to this in Y, and the rest don't offer anything...would certainly consider jetBlue on my next trans-con red-eye!

Remember VS having the amenity kits in Economy, they were brilliant! You got a proper drawstring bag which you could actually use, sunglasses, socks, toohbrush aand other stuff I can't remember. Those were the days!

Just a few years ago? I can't remember a time at all in the last 20-25 years when airlines have offered an amenity kit in coach on a U.S. domestic flight. This is a first in MANY years.
