The In Flight Messenger Bag is back! Redesigned, restocked, and read to hit the road. This is a limited edition bag upcycled from authentic, retired Southwest Airlines leather seat covers. Each In Flight Backpack has its own visual personality acquired from the seat’s journey.
Each messenger saves roughly 2,400 gallons of water and there is a CO2 reduction of up to 82%. Additionally, we partnered with Relay Resources, a non-profit that employs adults with disabilities to dismantle and clean the seats.

About Project LUV Seat
In order to conserve fuel, Southwest Airlines replaced their heavy leather airline seats with a lighter weight material, and they wanted to ensure that the journey didn’t end for 80,000 leather seat covers. We upcycled the seat leather into the In Flight Collection, conserving an estimated 2,000 gallons of water per pound of leather!
