That depends if it is a Hello Kitty or Star Wars service ... or just an ordinary plane.

The only item I regularaly take is the eye mask. I also have an iPad case that was given out in LH F and a set of JAL pajamas.

The little earbuds that DL distributes for AVOD on domestic flights in FC. I can plug them into my iphone to use DL Studio on flights that don't have AVOD. FAs are supposed to have the earbuds on these flights too, but they never have any.

I also take little bottles of water for the next part of the journey.

I always wanted one of these engines (the ones on the 777-300ER and the 787 are especially lovely to look at) or at least an APU for home use.

But I am quite convinced that the airline would notice and reprimand me in one form or another.

The pursuer on a flight from SEA-HKG was a nice chap and gave me two bottles of wine to take with me. They were probably $10 bottles, but it was awfully nice of him. I've taken a bottle of English cider from the Sky Team lounge at Heathrow as it's impossible to find good English cider back in the states.

Normally, for me, it's amenity kits and my blanket and pillow from business-class (the laundry bags from upscale hotels, which are typically cotton, are handy for this). I donate them alongside my hotel toiletries to my church's homeless shelter.

I've never really understood this. Wouldn't it be better to buy - and then donate - some large bottles of shampoo and soap, rather than driving up demand for those 30ml / 1oz hotel samples that create so much unnecessary plastic waste?

I try to have a copy of each months in flight magazine.

Memories. Some good, some bad, mostly forgettable.
