Delta takes Tumi to new heights for First Class passengers

Carrier upgrades First Class amenity kit

Cool kits

If you fly in the  Delta One cabin starting in September you'll find an improved  TUMI amenity kit at your seat. Delta’s TUMI hard-case amenity kit, which is based off of the company’s popular 19 Degree collection, will allow customers to monogram a patch on the front of the case, a first for any airline amenity.
According to Delta senior vice president if in flight servie, Allison Ausband, “Every detail incorporated into our TUMI amenity kit has been thoughtfully selected with our customers’ needs and preferences in mind – no matter how big or small.” “We are excited to offer customers the ability to monogram their amenity kits and create a personalized souvenir to take with them as they jetset across the globe.” 
The kits  combine two premium, high-quality brands – TUMI and Kiehl’s Since 1851 – to create a spa-like experience in the sky, revitalizing skin on Delta’s longest flights. Contents include a hand cleanser, a mouthwash stick, TUMI eyeshades ,  updated striped socks,  Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 and grapefruit-scented Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion with Aloe Vera and Oatmeal,  Crest toothpaste, tissues, mouthwash and ear plugs.
The kits will be available on all Delta One flights, including coast-to-coast flights between JFK and LAX/SFO, BOS-SFO and DCA-LAX, and will feature hard- and soft-cased TUMI kits. Passengers will score a silver hard-sided amenity kit outbound from the U.S. and a soft-sided black amenity kit inbound to the U.S., allowing them to add variety to their amenity kit collection each way. Complimentary monogramming will be available at any TUMI retail store aside from airport or outlet locations. Customers should bring the patch, which is located inside the kits, to the store to be monogrammed.
In the Delta Premium Select cabin, which debuts on Delta’s first Airbus A350 this fall, here  will  be a soft TUMI blue pouch at seats that include Malin+Goetz vitamin B lotion, a dental kit featuring Colgate toothpaste, an eye mask, socks and ear plugs.
On  international and select long-haul domestic flights, Delta Comfort+ customers receive a Rest and Refresh kit with eye shades, ear plugs and a dental kit featuring Colgate toothpaste, while Main Cabin customers receive kits that include eye shades and ear plugs.
Just another reason why this  Travel Diva recommends always flying First Class if you can.
