Earlier this week I wrote about a new United Airlines safety video that celebrates United’s partnership with Team USA in the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games. A flight attendant passed on news to me that beginning this month United will also offer passengers in United BusinessFirst, GlobalFirst special edition amenity kits to further commemorate the upcoming Olympics.
There will be three kits — one for BusinessFirst, one for GlobalFirst, and one for business class passengers on premium service (p.s.) flights. The Business First and GlobalFirst amenity kits look similar, shaped like an aircraft fuselage, while the p.s. tin is more conventional in shape.
Supposedly, the socks will have Team USA and Rio-themed designs that will resemble the sidewalk pattern at Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. I had to google this, but I assume something like this–

The new tins will be offered through September and will continue to contain Cowshed Spa products.
