Yes, men can have pink too. Qatar Airways loves pampering its flyers, and they have come up with special edition pink amenity kits, which will be handed out only in the month of October. This is not just a fancy whim. The airline is keen on doing its bit for breast cancer awareness, and October is the month for that. So this month, passengers on long-haul flights will be offered BRIC’s limited edition pink themed amenity kits.
If you want to support the cause but pink is a little too girly for you, they have charcoal coloured ones for men, with pink accents.
The kit sports a message printed on the outside that reads: ‘Support the fight & think pink’. But wait till you hear what’s inside the box. Each kit contains socks, eyeshades, ear plugs and an organic range of products that are from Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio from Italy. All products are nutrition-centric and includes olive oil in some of the formulations. Qatar has also included a lip balm, hydrating facial mist, and anti-aging moisturizer to the kit.
The first class pack has all of this, plus extra goodness packed in. It has a night recovery Cream and an eyeglass pouch. The bags are able to hold eyeshades, socks and ear plugs. The women’s version has the goodies in pink, whereas men have it in a greyish tone.
If you’re flying economy and feel bad about being excluded, don’t. Qatar will be handing out these pouches to long haul economy passengers as well. But these will only include eyeshades, plugs, lip balm, toothbrush and toothpaste, with the pink ribbon.
