It’s Faraway Friday, and you’re about to be let into a very exciting experience: a first flight with United’s new Polaris flight experience! My husband and I used a free upgrade on our recent trip to Guam, and it was quite a comfortable experience!
As you can see, there is a pile of amenities for our comfort: a blanket wrapped up with a bow, amenities kit, small pillow (assumedly for the lumbar), a throw, and a large pillow for sleeping! Here’s a look at what’s inside that amenities kit:
On the left side:
- Do not disturb decal: to be placed on your TV screen when you’re asleep and don’t want to be awakened (handy if you’d prefer more sleep over breakfast service)
- Cowshed products: facial cleansing cloth, sleep-enhancing spray for your pillow, chapstick, and lotion
- Earplugs for airplane noise
- Cushy sleep mask
On the Right Side:
- Grippy socks
- Pen for filling out customs forms
- Floss pick
- Hand sanitizer
- Breath mints
Want to feel even comfier? All flights to and from Asia provide plush slippers!
And what was I most excited for the new Polaris Business Class? Pajamas!
I ended up not even wearing them on the flight because, well, the bathroom is tiny and there was always a line! I did, however, try them on when I got home:
This is real life, people. This is what Quick Whit looks like in huge (and delightfully comfy!) PJs after two flights, 18 hours of travel time, and a few hours’ sleep on the plane from Tokyo to DC! All in all, bigger is better when it comes to pajamas, and these were soft, too!
Am I missing something? Oh yeah, the food! Tune in for my next What I Ate Wednesday when I talk about what I ate in Polaris Business!
