Qantas Now Has a Pillow Menu to Make First Class Even Fancier
Sometimes unlimited champagne and lie-flat beds just aren’t enough.
Now passengers on Qantas flights can make first class even classier by choosing from a menu of different pillows.
Starting this month, Qantas passengers on long-haul flights will be able to select one of three different pillows (from Australian luxury brand Sheridan) to make their sleep experience just right.
The Ultimate Comfort Pillow will be the standard option laid out on seats before takeoff. But if passengers find that ultimate comfort is not comfortable enough, they can request either a memory foam pillow or one made from feather and down.
The bedding refresh will also include a memory foam mattress. First class passengers will sleep inside Sheridan sheeting, including “a duvet cover made from soft-touch tencel, a 100% combed-cotton woven throw and a soft-touch bolster cushion,” according to Qantas.
The new bedding options will appear in Qantas’ first class suites onboard the A380 planes.
“A comfortable bed combined with our focus on in-flight nutrition and wellbeing are all part of our strategy to help our customers feel energised when they arrive at their destination,” Phil Capps, the airline’s head of customer product and service, said in a statement.
Qantas isn’t the only airline to place a renewed emphasis on better sleep in the skies. American Airlines just last week announced a collaboration with mattress company Casper. The sleep products — which include pillows, lumbar pillows, pillowcases, duvets, blankets, pajamas, and slippers — will be available to first, business, and premium economy class passengers on international and transcontinental flights.
