United Airlines continues to add new ways to celebrate the retirement of its Boeing 747 fleet. The last United 747 flight will take place on November 7 and will retrace the route of the airline’s first 747 flight in 1970, from San Francisco to Honolulu.

The Chicago-based airline said it is rolling out a line of 747-themed amenity kits starting October 23. The new amenity kits will be presented to passengers traveling in both United Polaris business and first as well as on Premium Transcon flights.

The contents of the kits include the usual items found in the bags, including eyeshades, earplugs, lip balm, and hand cream. The airline is adding 747-branded travel socks in the international kits and all kits include collectible 747 trading cards. Each card features a different 747 image on it as well as information about the 747’s history at United.

Passengers in the United Polaris business-class cabin will receive a blue oval 747 amenity kit, while passengers in the United Polaris first-class cabin will receive a silver oval kit. Those traveling in business class on the carrier’s Premium Transcon routes receive a square tin kit.

United is printing 15 different versions of the 747 trading cards and each kit will include five.
