From the Hangars

Care in the air

Jul 01, 2015

With Delta debuting refreshed TUMI amenity kits on flights this month, it's a great time to explore the evolution of airline in-flight amenities.  

Variety of Delta amenity kits from early 2000s-2014.

One of our favorite amenities is this 1950 Pan Am President Special shaving kit in a small metal tube. We found it at the recent 2015 Airliners International Collectibles Show hosted by the Delta Flight Museum. 

Pan Am's luxury "President Special" flights flew from New York to London, Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. 

For more in-flight amenties from Delta's family of airlines, see this timeline and photo gallery at the Delta News Hub.

Happy flying!
