This move is part of the airline’s work to reduce single-use plastics, and Delta estimates that by removing plastic bags from the TUMI kits, it will divert 30,951 pounds of plastic from landfills in just the first year. According to the airline, that saving is equivalent to the weight of one Delta CRJ-200 jet.
The new kits are not just for Delta One flyers, as the airline is also introducing redesigned amenity kits for Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin long-haul customers. The Main Cabin and Delta Comfort+ kits now include packaging sourced from customer photos, featuring real snapshots from around the globe curated through the airline’s #SkyMilesLife social media content.
“Every detail has been thoughtfully designed with customers’ needs in mind,” stated Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta’s director of onboard product and customer eExperience. “From a rejuvenating lineup of skin care products to help customers decompress, to small touches like a new hand cleansing towelette — these updates are a direct result of listening to our customers to understand what they value most and what would make their in-flight experience even better.”
Here’s a sneak peek at what customers can look forward to in Delta’s refreshed amenity kits:
