Qatar Airways has upgraded its onboard product significantly with the roll out of Diptyque amenity kits to business and first class passengers. The new kits, which come in three versions, are a big step up from the BRIC and Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio it has used since 2019 and rival Etihad’s luxurious Acqua di Parma kits.
The kits come either in a small square unisex gift box (photo below) or a similarly sized black pleather pouch for men and a white and black clutch for women. Both contain lip balm, body lotion, face cream, eyemask, socks and Diptyque’s Eau Rose or ‘34 Boulevard Saint Germain’ eau de toilette.
For now, Qatar is only guaranteeing the new kits on select routes, including flights to the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and A380 services from London and Paris. That said, Rhys got the new amenity kits on three of four Qatar Airways flights on his trip to Thailand earlier this month so they are clearly being loaded more widely.
He described the kits as ‘seriously impressive’ and one of the best he had ever received, with ‘very generously sized’ creams.
Last year Qatar rolled out Diptyque toiletries in onboard toilets and in lounges so the arrival of the amenity kits completes the rollout.
