Qantas business class amenity kits get an upgrade

It's been a busy couple of weeks for Qantas. On October 21, the airline announced the launch of its revamped A330 fleet. This week, however, the focus is on its brand-new business class amenity kits that are set to hit the skies on November 1.

The bags, designed by Kate Spade, come in two styles: a popping multi-coloured version for women and a more masculine Jack Spade black-and-red-hued number for men.

The contents, though, are the same: you've got your toothbrush, eye mask, travel socks and ear plugs, plus a range of day spa-inspired products from Melbourne-based brand ASPAR (the same company that operates the Aurora spa facilities in Qantas's Sydney and Melbourne First lounges). There's a tube of sweet orange and shea butter hand cream, vanilla and orange lip moisturiser and an aloe vera, sweet orange and rose geranium-infused face moisturiser to help combat the high-altitude dry air.

The kits will debut on A380 services between Australia, London, Dubai, Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth, before rolling out to other international services.
