Pajamas Coming To Delta One Cabins?

Hi All-

Just saw this thread on Airliners.net, but couldn't find any press-release/post confirming the same. Thoughts?

From the post:

"Sleep suits will be introduced on Lax to Pvg and Syd routes starting on December 15. Other routes to be added starting early in 2016."

LAX-PVG is relatively short compared to some other TPAC routes, although LAX-SYD is long, as are ATL-JHB, ATL-SVO, JFK-TLV and the about to be eliminated ATL-DXB,

Interesting.

Doing ICN to DTW in the spring on 747. Assume we would just use PJs from other flights on that trip (Emirates, Quatar, Singapore)

Why would they provide pajamas? About half the people in D1 show up virtually in pajamas anyway. Never ceases to amaze me what people are willing to wear in public in the name of comfort.

Well, I would fly w/o wearing my PJs. But it gets real cold sometimes :-)

On a more serious note, I was slumming around at the local mall and saw a pair of pants that looked a bit unusual. Checking them out, they basically would be what one might want to wear on long flight. Very elastic and lightweight, but looked almost like normal slacks.

Don your (nicely tailored) flame suit.

1) DL doesn't fly ATL-SVO, even seasonally.
2) Even if they did, ATL-SVO would be significantly shorter than LAX-PVG (ATL-SVO: 5,380 miles; LAX-PVG: 6,485). JFK-TLV, at 5,677 miles, is also shorter than LAX-PVG.

I can confirm this. But Delta is saying little other than: “We expect to have more to share in the coming weeks.”

They did. I flew it in the dead of winter.

And I can't understand how wearing a suit the whole time in D1 is comfortable.

Not sure which is crazier:

a) People that wear a full suite with jacket on a flight - even cross country.

b) People that wear suit AND an overcoat - even on a short flight

c) People that are unable to wear casual clothes and have to get into jammy/sweatpants, etc

It is just a chair and the temperature is usually somewhat normal.

People fly on day trips all the time for meetings where suits are expected. Packing what you need instead of wearing it makes no sense and creates issues of having to change clothes. Conversely, people will fly home after meetings and after checking out of their hotel and wear home what they wore during the day. A well-made suit and shirt that fits well should not be uncomfortable.

It's easier to wear an overcoat than try to pack it if you will need one at your destination. If you have a nice overcoat, it will go with anything including jeans and should be pretty warm. Mine is.

I change into sweats all the time when flying overseas. It's comfortable and I sleep better. I change back before landing. One benefit: the clothes I plan on wearing on arrival don't look as though I've slept in them. I feel pretty grungy if I am forced to wear clothes through the next day that I've slept in. I will sometimes skip the changing into and back part if I am staying near the airport and will be checking into my room right away and just wear sweats on the flight.

I tend to dress casually most of the time, but there are exceptions when I will wear a suit on a flight, mainly due to what I have planned at the destination. Yes, dress is a lot more casual these days, but there are occasions where a suit is expected. Lawyers, for instance, generally will wear suits for court appearances and client meetings. While the latter is changing, particularly in the tech industry, most corporate and financial clients still expect suits.

So, none of this is crazy at all.
