United Airlines Celebrates Boeing 747 Retirement With Branded Amenities Kit
United Airlines is celebrating the retirement of the carrier's Boeing 747 fleet by giving out a line of premium cabin amenity kits branded with the United Airlines logo and a picture of the 747 aircraft.
Starting Oct. 23, travelers on United's Polaris international business and first class cabins, and on Premium Transcon flights, will receive the kit, which includes the usual items found in cabin kits, like an eyeshade, earplugs, lip balm and hand cream, according to the Chicago Business Journal.
Additionally, the giveaway includes a set of collectible 747-themed trading cards, which feature different pictures of the aircraft and historical information about the aircraft's history with United Airlines.
The final United Airlines flight on a Boeing 747 will go from San Francisco to Honolulu on Nov. 7.
So, for aviation enthusiasts who can't take United Airlines up on one of the final flights, maybe they can at least get their hands on one of these amenities kits or a trading card to celebrate the history of the Boeing 747.
