Of course, I am looking forward to the Rimowa, too.
Both are very nice, if you want to use it for waring when travelling the no name has a bag of better quality. The Boggi's bag is a disappointment.

Even my mother likes both, I gave her one of each type.

My next flight is outbound only, so I’ll only get the no name one, which is fine by me, as long as it’s big enough.

Bright pink rimowa on BKK-SYD. Asked for a different color, but they said they didn‘t have any.

My daughter may like it ...

Flew HND-BKK last week. Asked if they had any Rimowa kits and the FA produced two gold ones and we traded in the Porsche ones for those.

I flew CDG - BKK two days ago. They only had the Porsche Design kits and no luck to trade them for any left stock Rimowas.

The flight attendant mentioned that it's possible to pre-order your favorite Rimowa kit color when flying out of BKK by calling the TG hotline two days ahead of flying.
Anyone tried this?

If that’s true, they should tell passengers beforehand. I would certainly never have ended up with that ugly-as-hell pink Rimowa that was all they had on BKK-SYD a few days ago. To load only pink ones still leaves me flabbergasted, what was the person who decided that thinking...

not everybody has the same taste as you
and more often than not, the colors are not assorted and only one, max two available….

There are no doubt different tastes. But there were 4 males sitting in viewing distance of my seat and all (!) looked at the pink Rimowa in disbelief, and some asked for alternative colors which were not available. It‘s not just me then ...

But then again, I am probably spoiled by LH, LX and the like, which have separate kits for males and females.

Tastes are different again, maybe also cultures.

In most European cultures, a pink amenity kit is just completely unthinkable for all but the most extroverted heterosexual males. An (albeit ugly) silver one is not.

Take a step outside your comfort zone and rock the pink! Maybe TG was trying to expand your amenity horizons...
