- A nice kit design!
- Too bad the launch is happening during the pandemic travel slowdown
- Great that SIA finally has a J amenity kit, although I did agree somewhat with their previous position that if you were a frequent traveller, these kits would just pile up at home.
- I always thought green was the colour SQ designated for Y (e.g. the old green boarding passes)...

I’ll report back in 3 week’s time if they are being offered onboard! And curiously book the cook options are back although on a more limited scale but it’s definitely appreciated! Right now little things that I used to take for granted in the past are making me excited again!

As we are now in an age of reducing waste this does seem like a step backwards.

Sharp observation. Maybe theyíll change it to the Blue or beige that coloured those sockette bags?

Good point, even UA gives out PJs in Business (Very nice PJ's in fact!)...

But there are probably very heated arguments in Airline House right now over the right COVID-19 strategy: Invest even more in luxury and amenities to better attract what little business/top-end travel still happens, or cut costs further to improve margins in these challenging times...

SQ did do a tender for PJs last year... so they have pretty much committed to them... but.. COVID...

My fear is with all the cutbacks during covid you won't see all the little things come back.

SQ has been cutting back for years as well

At least their hard product is great

I am not bothered about the amenity kit - I would love to see PJs.

I wonder if this is more of an unavoidable spend due to Covid rather than a genuine enhancement, ie. give everyone a bigger amenity kit but remove most loose toiletries from the bathrooms for hygiene reasons?

I am not sure this means we will see PJs due to cost but would love to be wrong on this...
