Items include Cowshed amenities and amenity kits as well as pillows and blankets. Furthermore, United will sell you its proprietary scent, called Landing, in the form of soap, candles, or incense sticks.

Please folks, don’t ruin it for everyone by stuffing bedding in your bags. It might not even be worth the risk…what’s the difference between a pillow and a bag?
