American Airlines will be introducing new amenity kits and bedding when they roll out their new business class suite in 2024. However they have a new set of amenity kits that are beginning to be used now, too, as first revealed by airline watchdog JonNYC.
You’ll see both old and new amenity kits until they deplete current stock. The new bags are Shinola items, just like the new ones they introduced last year.
AA: New amenity kits– HEY WAKE UP!! 😁– coming. Nov 17*, new @Shinola kits in F.
(* will work heir way in as existing supplies are exhausted)
"With this refresh, we now offer four styles of amenity kits to our customers, depending on their class of service."

The first class Shinola pebble grain bags begin rolling out November 17 including
- DS & Durga Rose Atlantic scented cleansing towel; Bombay scented face cream; Radio Bombay scented hand and body lotion; Rose Atlantic scented lip balm
- Dental kit: toothbrush and Miradent toothpaste
- Eye mask
- Shinola socks
- Paper roll pen
- Shinola and DS & Durga discount codes (think of these kits as a merchant-funded offer)
These new bags, and their contents, don’t yet reflect American’s priorities of sustainability, diversity criteria in their suppliers, or local flavor. As JonNYC points out, so far they appear just to have a “foldable toothbrush sourced from eco-friendly wheat straw” which sounds like exactly what I want to put in my mouth.
