It was good to be back in Turkish Airlines Business Class, and here is a review of the Hackett amenity kit provided during our flight from Chicago to Istanbul. The pouch is branded Hackett London, and the contents are from Qiriness. All new brands to me. Photos are stock images from Turkish Airlines and Kaelis who makes the kits.
Welcome to another installment of our amenity kit review series. As in past reviews, I will be reviewing this amenity kit on a scale from 1 to 5 (being the best) and will rate it based on five categories:
- Bag/container: design, quality and reusability/collectibility of the bag.
- Product: quality, size and variety of the facial and body products.
- Comfort items: eye masks, ear plugs, etc.
- Miscellaneous: pens, tissues and everything else.
- Extras: additional items that make your flight just a tad more comfortable including pajamas, slippers, etc.
Turkish Airlines Hackett Amenity Kit
In May 2022, Turkish launched new amenity kits for their long haul (>8 hours) business class flights. Here is some of the information in their press release
Always carrying its travel concept to a higher level, Turkish Airlines continues to host its guests with brands at the forefront of fashion world. Flag carrier signed an agreement with Coccinelle and Hackett for its travel kits offered to its guests flying Business Class on 8 hours or more long-distance flights starting from 29 April.
Global brand breathed a new life to travel kits for women with alluring and elegant designs of Coccinelle, trendy brand of fashion world with its romantic and feminine hand bags. As for men, flag carrier added British brand Hackett, which became the symbol of sportive and stylish men, to its product portfolio. Offered with a special concept, comfort sets contain 3d sleep mask designed to accommodate face contours, breathable socks, ear plug that balances the pressure, toothbrush, toothpaste with increased fluoride and recyclable packaging, hairgrip and of course skin care products.
Perfectly fine, and nicer than some for business class. Score: 3
Items include lip balm and body lotion, which are are the bare minimum, but there is also a facial mist, which I really appreciate, especially for dry air in flight. Rather small containers, so not much to reuse, but not too bad. Dental kit is fine, with a 2 piece toothbrush, and better quality than normal toothpaste, Colgate Total, which I often use at home. Score: 3
Note that the image above is of the female kit, branded Coccinelle, which my wife received. Contents are the same other than color differences, and Cinq Mondes products, and the addition of a hair band. My wife liked it, and used much of it,
The eyemask is better quality that most I’ve seen, with structure to keep the light out, but not hitting eyes/eyelashes while wearing. I remember something similar in the Qantas First Class kit Score: 3.5
Earplugs are 3M branded. Decent quality, and come in a reusable case. Score: 3
Conveniently, Turkish offers business Class passengers slippers, in a shoe bag for use in flight. The slippers are good quality, and I used them on the rest of the trip, and beyond. A nice extra for a business class product. Slippers are a nice to have. These are good quality, and I have continued to reuse them after the flight. I also enjoyed the stickers in the kit, to be placed on the seat, notifying flight attendants whether or not you wanted to be woken for meals. Reminds me of old amenity kits from a decade or more ago. Score: 3.5
Final thoughts on the Turkish Airlines Hackett Amenity kit
The container itself is decent quality, and reusable, but not sure I would use it as a toiletries case. The skincare products are somewhat minimal, but what is included is good quality. Nice eyemask, and slippers help boost the score a bit.
Using the same scoring system for other reports, subjective yes, but I do my best to be consistent across products, I rate this kit 3.2
Have you tried out this Turkish Airlines Hackett Amenity kit? (or the Coccinelle female version?0 Please let us know what you think.
I’m pretty geeky about these amenity kits, and always take them after flights. This means I have more than I need. For this reason, I make donations to a local shelter, where these items are really appreciated. If you have extras, I hope you do the same.
