Travel bag trails
A travel bag is an opportunity for an airline to show off a little, to say its the one prepared to go that extra inch to give its key business class customers something welcoming and caring. Radio producer and long distance traveler Joanna Luke unzips a bundle of business class bags and judges what she finds.
“Three of the bags I looked at Iberia’s bmi’s and Qantas were a joy to open. They gave my tired psyche a lift and roused as Ah that, nice.”
Less than half the bags contained moisturizers in 2003
Joanna’s favorite bags:
bmi – with enough goodies to fill a Christmas stocking: mouthwash, a pair of eye gel soothing goggles, spray gels, socks with pads and a full-size toothbrush
- EL Al – good kit with extras like nail clippers, a mirror, sewing kit and Q-tips
- Virgin – famously combine first and business, they go the whole hog with a sleepsuit, sleep remedy and balm.
