Exactly & LH have done the same, Rimowa are universally liked & none of the replacements LH have come up with have been appreciated, seems like LH & TG have no idea of passengers preferences for amenity kits

Yeah, the Porsche one is so ugly, itís worse than Samsonite one NH replaced their Rimowa one with.

The probably just don't care?

I have to give TG one thing: I do not mind so much when airlines (such as TG) replace the Rimowa in one direction, but getting rid of them altogether is what bothers me.

Can anybody verify amenity kit being offered on ex-KIX flights? Rumor has it no kits and no PJs.

Amenity kit not provided. I asked about a toothbrush or amenity kit and was provided a toothbrush. My seat mate had a Porsche amenity kit so I asked and he seemed to think everyone got one. I mentioned it to the purser and a few minutes later was provided a dark blue Porsche kit.
BKK to SYD had the new Rimowa kits (yellow) with straight zipper pulls and the nice pajamas with the tall collar.

Ok. I've got one to BKK and one from BKK. So I guess I can sample both!

On 31 May SYD-BKK-KIX:
First segment (1000-1620) - Porsche kit waiting at each seat (dark blue) and Boggi pajamas offered despite being a daytime flight.
Second segment (2359-0730) - Rimowa kit waiting at each seat (lemon yellow w/ beige zipper/straight zipper pulls), pajamas only provided upon request, they were the high collar/button placard.

Also of note, the shower in my massage room was not working so I showered in the main spa restroom. There is a full steam room and sauna in there for all first class passengers. I didn't realize that this was available, but all you need to do is to give them about 20 minutes notice to get it warmed up and you're set. I'd image that the rooms are hardly ever used given how much they promote them.
Also, I didn't realize until this visit that their lounge scotch (Chivas Regal Royal Salute 21 year) and cognac (Hennessy XO) both retail for $180 per bottle. Great siping to be had on my 7 hour layover.
