Default New Lalique F Amenity Kit and Sleeper Suits

On SQ 7 LAX/ICN yesterday.

I didn’t take pics of the Pajamas but they are way better fit. The Pajamas have a Lalique logo on the pocket vs a SQ logo. Same goes for the slippers.

The usual amenities in the toilets are also by Lalique.

Are the new amenity kits available across the full fleet offering first class, or only on those offering the new suites?

SQ7 is a 77W. The kit has a candle believe it or not with a paper that says ‘don’t operate in aircraft... !’

Also has some sort of crystal ornament. No real amenities.... bizarre.

Lalique is first and foremost known for their glassware. SQ approached them to design the new glassware onboard in First and Suites.

The crystal ornament is by Lalique as well and can be purchased on Krisshop. For Suite passengers it's a free gift.

As part of the deal with Lallique, they secured the 'naming rights' for PJs and the bedlinen so you can't miss the brand name.

My wife and I got them on 319 last month: as an amenity kit it's pretty hopeless. The PJs are ok though.

What makes a good amenity kit (i.e., what items should be included)? What items should be excluded as they are useless?
We know that toothbrushes (good quality ones IMO) are provided in the lavatories.

Well, providing high quality re-use items (so not quite sharable in a lavatory for example) is always good. Seems rest of it are novelties or souvenirs to keep the journey memorable.

Agreed. Kits aren't particularly great (I've got half a dozen unopened at home, not sure why I keep bringing them back, and neither is the missus....) but the PJ's are OK.

Slightly unusual for them to have three different versions. I wonder how many other airlines do that ?.

A good case/shell so that you MIGHT actually use it for something...and a pen...

If an airline is going to go the trouble, and cost, of producing these kits, they ought to be useful, not just a gimmick. I can't really see any value in a candle on a plane.

A corkscrew might be handy though...

You get a perfume/cologne on the outbound and it will last you for the way back. The idea is to give you something you take home and 'bond' with SQ later at home so you come back and fly SQ again.

Agreed- a candle on a plane is a tad ironic. Various safety administrations might have issues with corkscrews though.

What would be really nice to get in an amenities kit- saline eye moistening drops with a saline spray for the nose and fancy chewing gum for the descent. Would show some thought for the flying experience and be more useful than a candle on a plane.

(Actually "Candles on a Plane" could make a great comedy spoof movie...)
