In the past I never really “got” onboard duty free, since I kind of assumed there were never any good values. And while that’s probably mostly true, I’ve come to realize that sometimes they at least have some neat airline souvenirs you can’t find elsewhere. For example, in June I picked up a Cathay Pacific pilot bear from onboard duty free, and he does a great job guarding my Rimowa amenity kits.
So I once again browsed the duty free catalog on my recent ANA flight, and saw this spiffy iPhone 5 case:
I thought it was just about the coolest thing ever, and after a series of about five “thank you or waiting” phrases by the crew as they scoured the cart for it, it was mine.
Heck, I’ve gotten more compliments about my new iPhone case than I have about my post-Hong Kong wardrobe!
I was planning on buying a couple of extras to give away, though sadly I snagged the last one. Next time. But if you’re in the market for a new iPhone case, ANA is where it’s at!
