Club Suites and bedding
 
Slightly reluctantly (in that I was downgraded from First by a change of equipment) I flew in Club Suites overnight ORD/LHR the other day. It was very superior to old CW, for which I was grateful. But I was a little confused, in that I had read a review of the White Company bedding which I am sure had talked about a 'mattress' sort of pad, a blanket and a sheet. But all there was on offer was a blanket. Did I get that wrong, or has life been enhanced already in this regard?

If you had the pack it should have contained a quilted blanket and smaller blanket and something that looks like a panty pad.

DominicB Aug 4, 20 2:07 pm

There was simply a blanket wrapped in clear plastic. And the (young) cabin crew member I asked seemed to suggest that this is all there ever was...?

No there should be three things in the pack.

Yes, I assume it still should all come in the White Company zipped up pack as well, as opposed to individual items. There's a mattress topper, a lighter blanket, and a heavier duvet. If you only got a blanket then it sounds to me as if this may have been a WTP blanket by mistake?

Currently only the duvet and pillow are being provided. The day blanket and topper are temporarily removed.

There is usually a pack containing a mattress, duvet and day blanket. However, for the last couple of months only the duvet has been provided. Presumably cost saving.

In that I cannot see why providing them all rather than only one can be COVID justified, this feels inappropriate.

Realistically, I think MFCC above has given the reason. The Covid fig leaf has been deployed again.

What a shame that the mattress topper and blanket has gone. Surely having the mattress topper is more hygienic, as without it, consecutive passengers will be sleeping on the same seat fabric.
Ill now have to take a single bedsheet in my carryon, in addition to the champagne flute.

Iím sure the full bedding set will return at some stage. They were a genuine improvement and I canít see a reason for them not to come back. I presume the short term cost of laundering the extra bits just couldnít be justified at the moment.

With how empty the flights are just take another duvet and use it as a mattress pad, problem solved!

Depending on how much you drink, you will need to pack additional flutes, sealed and sanitized, for each additional pour....wink

I would have hoped they were laundering them all after every pax and pre-covid anyway! If not then OMG

I can concur with OP. Only a duvet and pillow provided. Blanket and topper not being provided at present. This is firsthand from 2 long hauls flown last week.
