Mystery Airline Amenity Kit Giveaway

Update: Wow! Huge response. To keep things rolling as we fly past 100 entrants, I am adding a second amenity kit to the draw, same rules as the first. We’re covering the world in weather reports.

I am heading to Las Vegas for CES and in a gaming mood. I also have a duffle of amenity kits that I want out the door. So let’s start a periodic giveaway. I’ll randomly select a recipient and randomly select the amenity kit, here’s the current inventory (all are from business class in the past several years):
