Delta is releasing new Tumi amenity kits starting July 1st in their Delta One (their branding for business class) and new “sleep kits” in Comfort+ classes. Delta is unique among domestic airlines in that they use brand-name amenity kits, which I personally think adds a really nice touch. Tumi is a premium brand and no doubt Delta adds some positive brand equity from the name association.
There are two Tumi kits, with the only difference being that one is a hard-shell and the other is soft. They’ll be alternated based on direction of travel, so if you’re flying Delta One on a transcontinental round trip you’ll receive one of each. The contents will be the same regardless.
When I read about the new kits I reached out to some contacts at Delta to see if they could shoot me an example of each kit so I could do a review for my readers. They arrived yesterday and I immediately began a photoshoot. And then I decided to give both of them away to my beloved readers (see the bottom of the post for details).
The packaging is definitely premium. Both kits feel high-quality and relatively durable.
The products inside
Delta’s providing a variety of items inside, from MALIN+GOETZ skin products and mouth wash to a really nice soft-touch Tumi pen. The pen is a really nice touch, I frequently forget to bring a pen along on my flights and am surprised how often I wish I had one in my bag.
The whole package
I think overall I actually prefer the soft-side kit, I feel like I’d be much more likely to re-use that one than the hard-side kit. Either way, I think Delta’s new kits are a nice refresh that have a premium feel without costing Delta too much to put together.
As a reminder, these kits will be released July 1st. I have them right now. I imagine some of you want them right now and don’t want to wait for your next Delta One flight. Solution? Giveaway. I’m giving away both kits, so two winners! That’s right, win them before you can get them!
