First Class Amenity Kits

It's a while now (~two years) since I last flew in BA F. Has the design of the first class amenity kit container, or its contents, changed much in the interim, please?

Thank you, darthlemsip, for such a prompt response. ^

As for the container and its contents, I see that there have not been any changes since my last F flight. Am I the only male passenger who would like to see a small comb included in the kit?

As a man with a finely cropped head of hair and a distinct 'monk patch' developing arounf the crown, a comb is unfotunately the last thing I need - but yes, I could see it being a worthwhile inclusion

On EK, the ammenity kits in J are different for male and female (not sure about F as I didn't get one - only given out on overnight flights I think). Would like to see BA do that, and up their J one as it's pretty poor

On EK F it's a male and female kit, the male one is a lovely brown leather wash bag.
These awful BA bags are only fit for eBay totally impractical and a razor would be good.Please can we have something like the old flying boat bags, both wife and I still use these.

Not only is the quality of the BA F bag slightly questionnable, the products are horrid! CW products are better (Elemis), but the bag is cheap and nasty. Would be good if BA could offer Emma Hardie products in F

I'd swap it all for a decent sized tube of toothpaste.

Nope, current F bags still useless and get left on board. Contents are ok, but bags total rubbish.
In contrast, I still use the older F and J bags for cables and things....very useful.

On a related note, does anyone happen to have an older spare F tower bridge (or possibly boat) Anya bag (no contents) they would be willing to part with? Mine is now looking a little worse for wear... More than happy to send a few in return and of course cover postage

Bring back the Flying Boat bag. ^ At least some of the DR Harris product has been ditched in favour of REN.

100 a bag? They are that useful and hardwearing. Once has done 9 years service and is barely worn.

Great idea.

Another vote for something like the old bag to be returned. the current offering reminds me of the sort of container used by some Chinese take-aways

First Class Amenity Kits

The contents are so miniaturised it's almost impossible for anyone with adult size hands to use them.

Current F bag is a total waste of time, energy and money.

I've been using some contents and leaving mine behind for 2-3 years now.

The flying boat one was much better.

EK and QF bags make fantastic presents to kids... I'm taking a bunch of QF F ones and PJs from recent trips (unused!) to Uganda tonight on the BA63 as gifts for kids in an orphanage I support.

I nearly brushed by teeth with eye gel (or something) recently.

The F bags really are terrible.

Also, the quality of the PJ's seems to have gone south. The large size always used to fit quite nicely, but now I can't fit into them (despite losing a fair bit of weight before you start tittering). The material also feels a lot thinner/cheaper.
