Which Airlines Provide Pajamas in Business Class?

Which Airlines Provide Pajamas in Business Class?
Ariana Arghandewal

 Nowadays, the difference between business and first class is miniscule. Both cabins offer flatbed seats, great food and good service. The difference is really in the details: The size of the cabin, the luxuriousness of the seat, the quality and size of the food, and the amenity kits. Amenity kits usually contain a pair of socks, eye mask, toothbrush, toothpaste, and moisturizer. In first class, the amenities are supersize – and a pair of pajamas are thrown in.

There’s no better way to get comfortable on a long flight with a flatbed seat than to put on a pair of comfy pajamas. While most carriers only offer them in first class, here’s a list of airlines that offer pajamas in business class:


Qatar Airways Business Class

Qatar Airways is ahead of the game when it comes to business class. Not only are their QSuites one of the best business class products out there (and on par with first class on many other airlines), but they top it off by offering pajamas in business class. It’s a small touch in the grander scheme of things, but it does make the flight more pleasant.


Qantas Business Class

Qantas has been offering pajamas in first class for nearly two decades. I would say it made up for their outdated seats, but it didn’t. Luckily Qantas introduced a new business class product several years ago and has been updating their fleet since 2015.


American Airlines Business Class

Last year, American Airlines announced it would be teaming up with Casper to introduce new bedding and pajamas in business and first class. That’s right, the company that makes those mattresses in a bag now helps make sleeping on those hard flatbed seats in business class a little more comfortable.


Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic doesn’t have a first class cabin, which explains why they offer first class comforts in their “upper class” business cabin. These comforts include flatbed seats (introduced in 1998), meals served with actual silverware and pajamas.


Delta Airlines

Like it’s partner airline Virgin Atlantic, Delta Airlines does not have a first class cabin. That doesn’t mean they haven’t taken steps to offer a superb business class experience, with fully enclosed suites and pajamas. I know, the pajamas part sounds completely trivial compared to the fully enclosed suites.


United Airlines

Launched in 2016, United’s Polaris business class product was a step up for the airline. Aside from an improved cabin and amazing airport lounges. United also offers pajamas in business class, though these can only be requested on flights over 12 hours.


There are plenty of airlines offering pajamas in business class. It certainly shouldn’t be a deciding factor when you’re planning travel, but it’s always good to be aware of what’s available. On longer flights, I’ll often bring a fresh pair of clothes to change into. It’s nice to arrive at your destination feeling fresh and a full amenity kit with pajamas can make a huge difference. And yes, I totally keep those pajamas and wear them regularly.


Which business class pajamas are your favorites?

    Last time I flew with them, EVA gave out very comfortable pajamas in business class.

    What routes does Delta still offer jammies? We’ve been getting them on LAXSYD for the past few years, but at the end of Oct: none.
    Or will they return with the 777 suites?

    EVA Air, definitely: great service in business class including very good quality pajamas and, on selected routes, the famed Rimowa amenity kits. Any reason why EVA Air was omitted here?

    BR has the best pajamas by Apujan. I honestly still use it as it’s also very stylish.

    Virgin Australia — pjs and foam pads on the seats when they make up the beds, at least fall 2017.
