The last international flight I was on with Delta this past December was my crazed escape from 4 million over the top insane football fans in Buenos Aires Argentina. I am really not kidding when I say insane (as you can see in this post).
On that flight, I was given what I think is still the current stock Delta business class amenity kit that I called in the post “NoOne NoWhere” because it is such a piece of junk that even using it in Premium Select (a.k.a. Delta’s premium economy) would be an insult. Why Delta, charging such sky-high prices vs. other airlines, is offering something so weak is beyond me.
Beyond the cheap contents is the kit itself. I mean I have, as you can see, a bunch of old Delta kits and I have used them for many many years to hold all kinds of things. For example, the bottom left one holds a battery brick and power cord and lives in my golf bag as I often use my phone for GPS on golf shots (for distance). It is one of my favorite kits ever as it is a good size and has quality construction.
I have never been a big fan of the hard case Tumi kits but it has its uses as I put stuff in my travel backpack that I don’t want to risk being crushed and it works very well for that purpose.
The skinny and mini-skinny kits have worked well for cords of all kinds as well as N95 masks. While I don’t wear a mask when up in the air, I do still tend to put one on when I move about on the way to the plane.
The old trusty blue flap one has been the home to a number of generations of laptop power cords as well as my travel mouse. The few-generation back gray soft side one at the top holds my power splitter with USB ports and the old NWA one holds a power cord for a high-capacity power brick I still have.
Heck, even the much-hated round red kit I use for my GoPro and its battery fits perfectly into the thing and it is a good reminder (being red) to grab it before I go on a trip.
Overall I love almost all of the kits Delta Air Lines has used over the years and they are all fond reminders of the trips I have taken (until the latest version clearly). Do you have a favorite old kit that you still use or one you also just hate and tossed out when returning home? Let us all know! – René
