Galley Kit?
Hi Everyone:
I am interested to know what FA's carry with them. I heard some have a galley kit they take on every flight. What do you suggest be in the kit?

galley kit
When I do contract, I carry doilies- small, med, large; tongs; white service napkins; wine opener; wine bottle neck ring; clorox wipes; altoids; zip lock bags - small, med, large; travel size febreeze (good for a smelly plane and also to get the food smell out of your suit - so you dont smell like a dirty galley when saying goodbye or if no time to dry clean if flights are too close together); cocktail napkins; small trial size toiletries (for me and pax, if asked); clothe dish towel; oven mit; all purpose seasoning; Wet ones or clothe disposable hand towels; small yellow sticky note pads and pen.

I have heard some FA even bring a bottle of red and white wine, oils for cooking and sauce packets.

Flying contract, I always have my knives, mainly a 5" serrated knife. It's good for fruits, veggies, meats, and doubles as a bread knife. I also bring those thin plastic "throw-away" cutting sheets. I cut mine into sizes I can use easier. I carry a Microplane grater..there is one out there that has two interchangable graters..fine and medium grate...good for chocolate, parmesan, even lemon zest. And a small pepper mill.

More items
A small flashlight (I like Mag Lite) is a must. A spill control agent such a Red Z and disposable gloves along with a nice little container of Purell should be added to your list.

Wasn't there a post once upon a time about this very subject? I need to search it out.

I am getting together a galley kit................. One day, I plan on needing it.

Just in case.

I did hear back from the one I interviewed with, wanting my resume once again.

Thanks for all the info.

Thank you BettyB.
I have bought a couple of thing already. When I get this list all compiled, and see all that I need, it is off to the "outlet mall"
We have a Farberware store, Kitchen aid, Mikasa, PaperFactory. And prices are great!
The ziplocks , wrap and foil, I will get from Walmart.

Soft sided cooler? About what size do you suggest?

Thanks for all the great tips!

soft sided cooler on wheels
I recently worked contract on a plane that was equipped with a couple of soft sided, collapsible coolers on wheels. VERY useful. I need to ask the full time flight attendant on that plane where she found them, as they are great, and I am planning to add them to my "ready kit".
