If you ever wonder which airlines give pyjamas in business class, read on. Lip balm, eye mask and ear plugs are expected in amenities kits in business class. But pyjamas are rarer.
Business Class has evolved a lot over recent years with many airlines significantly improving their business class service giving us a product that is often barely distinguishable from first class. On a long haul flight, a business class seat can make a huge difference, and if you’re on an overnight flight, the luxury of being able to lie down on a flatbed seat rather than trying to snooze sitting upright is wonderful. Flying becomes a pleasure rather than a chore to be endured. You’ll get delicious food and drink to enjoy on your journey, and those little extras that make your flight special. From a complimentary glass of Champagne as you board, to a stylish amenity kit, we love these treats, and now several airlines are starting to provide pyjamas in business class too.
Once you change into a comfortable pair of pyjamas, you can truly relax. No one wants to sleep in their clothes so it’s great that airlines are now giving out pyjamas in business class. It might be a small detail but it can make a huge difference to in-flight comfort levels.
So which airlines will provide you with pyjamas when you fly business class?
Qatar Airways has won awards for its innovative business class QSuites and its high level of service, so it’s no surprise that it provides pyjamas for its passengers. Qatar Airways was voted best airline in the world in 2019 and also won the best business class in the world award in 2019. A business class flight with Qatar Airways is very close to a first class experience.
2. Virgin Australia
The business class pyjamas provided by Virgin Australia have been designed by Juli Grbac, winner of Project Runway Australia. She also designed the crew uniforms.
3. Delta Airlines
Not only do you get comfortable pyjamas when you fly with Delta Airlines, you also get a fully enclosed suite, perfect privacy for sleeping your way through a night flight.
4. American Airlines
American Airlines has its bedding and pyjamas provided by the famous mattress brand Casper. This is available to both first class and business class passengers.
5. United Airlines
United Airlines too will offer you pyjamas on your business class flight, but only if your flight is 12 hours or longer.
Along with fleet updates, Qantas has improved its business class product over the last few years and these days you also get that all important pair of pyjamas when you fly with the airline.
On some long haul flights, ANA will ‘rent’ you pyjamas in business class. Unfortunately you won’t get to keep them unless you’re flying first class.
8. EVA Air
On long haul flights with EVA Air, you’ll be treated to pyjamas designed by Jason Wu, famous for designing clothes for the Obamas. EVA Air has been voted #10 business class airlines in the world.
9. Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Atlantic has an Upper Class cabin, which is its version of both business and first class in one. This means you get a lot of the extras you’d find on a first class flight, including pyjamas. It’s also famous for the cute aeroplane salt and pepper shakers marked with ‘pinched from Virgin Atlantic’ on the feet.
