Over the past decade, Etihad has distinguished itself as one of the finest international airlines in the world. One of the Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates-based carrier’s calling cards is it swanky first and business class cabins. In 2017, consumer aviation research firm Skytrax named Etihad’s first class cabin the best in the world. While its business class cabin was named the fourth best in the world by Skytrax.
Etihad’s arsenal of luxury accommodations includes The Residence, a 125 square-foot, flying home found exclusively on its fleet of Airbus A380 superjumbos. Then there is its standard 45 square-foot private first class suite, dubbed The Apartment. Finally, Etihad’s business class passengers travel in a more intimate private suite called The Studio.
An important part of that premium performance is a well-equipped amenity kit. It’s a set handy items that really help round off the complete in-flight experience.
Here’s a closer look at Etihad premium cabin amenity kits.

Passenger's travelling in The Apartment get a smaller, but still incredibly lavish first class suite.
Etihad offers two different first class amenity kits both with leather cases by Christian Lacroix. Female passengers get a plum fold over bag designed to double as a stylish clutch.
Male passengers get a grey amenity bag that can be buttoned down to form a traditional wash bag or used as a flat case for phones and keys.
The Etihad first class kit features four anti-ageing and rejuvenating items from Hungary's Omorovicza. The items, including a balancing moisturizer, nourishing hand treatment, perfecting lip balm, and a cleansing wipe were selected from the brand's 'gold' collection. According to Omorovicza, the gold in its products is supposed to 'heal micro-damage and strengthen skin.'
The kit also comes with a care pack made up of ear plugs, cotton pads, and an emery board. There's a dental pack with a toothbrush and Colgate toothpaste. Passengers also get a sleep pack consisting of comfortable socks and an eye mask as well as a relax pack with pillow mist and pulse point oil.
Finally, there are ear plugs and a comb.
The men's kit features the same contents as the women's kit but adds a shaving kit with razor and shaving cream by London-based skin care brand Scaramouche + Fandango.
Etihad teamed up with LUXE City Guides to create its business class amenity kits. The business class kits come in a variety designs reflecting the architecture of the various destinations served by the airline.
Etihad's business class amenity bag features a comfort kit by Scaramouche + Fandango complete with a facial hydrator and honey shea butter lip balm. The bags also contain a sleep pack, a dental pack, and ear plugs along with a city guide full of dining and recreation options.
