    These things are just junk; I’d rather have them have an amenity kit that was usable after the flight. I still use a KLM neoprene case from 2002 for electronics and a 2009 Iberia as well, because they had handles and functionality afterwards.. Seriously there is nothing special about these, they’re tin cases w/ a terrible slogan from a crappy airline.

      Agree with you, Scott, that United seems to half-ass promotions like these. While I *do* appreciate their attempt to be creative, they consistently fall short when it comes to the actual quality of any products like these. I mean, they have a barely adequate Global First amenity kit as it is. I’d prefer they put some effort into improving their hard and soft products across the board to be more on par with other international carriers than waste money on cheesy, gimmicky nonsense like this.

    SYD is also on the list — I got one last week. So if the others are correct, there must be more than 8.

    Sometimes due to operational screw-ups I’m a Debbie Downer on UA as well, but I like that they do something like this. A little variety is fun and I’m looking forward to grabbing a couple on a trip to Europe next month.
