Cathay Pacific's regional arm Dragonair is rolling out a funky new amenity kit for first class and business class passengers.

Modelled on Cathay Pacific's new business class amenity kit, the bag is supplied by Hong Kong designed luggage company Seventy Eight Percent.

Inside is a selection of natural skincare products from world-leading Australian brand Jurlique including day cream, citrus hand cream and lip care balm, along with 'anti-skid socks', an eyeshade mask, toothbrush, toothpaste, earplugs and a monitor cloth for giving your laptop or tablet's screen a quick clean.

The Seventy Eight Percent washbags come in 12 colours that will be rotated throughout the year.

But not every passenger in Dragonair's pointy end will get one of these bags to take home.

The airline says distribution will be limited to late-night flights on selected routes between Hong Kong and Bangalore, Beijing, Busan, Dhaka, Kathmandu, Kolkata, Tokyo and Yangon.

These look fantastic (much better than the new VA domestic amenity kits..) However I really have a problem with the domestic airline line of just offering kits on late night flights...

If the ticket class is the same and the cost is the same, the same level of service should be offered on all flights.

While I'll always appreciate an amenity kit (well a decent one) on a short sector flight, they are an oddity for travel of just a couple of hours. There's an expectation on flights of six hours or more, where there is a couple of meal services, for an amenity kit as freshness necesitates some in-flight touch-ups. For shorter hops, you are not likely to need to use them on-board (which is what the amenity kit was designed for). Still useful to take with you off the aircraft, but more a bonus than a essential requirement in my view.

Received one of these on Jan 2 coming back from Kathmandu; much nicer than the old Agnes B bags; although they have no zips the fabric is much more natural and the interior of the bags appear larger and more practical to use after all the goodies have been removed. The Jurlique products are great and the size of the products are generous. Well done CX and KA, look forward to collecting all the different colours.

Im sure we would appreciate this kit as we will be getting off in Hong Kong and straight on to dragonair for Beijing..  Agree with Jack, you pay the fare you should be intitled to the kit...
