LH introduces pyjamas and mattresses in Business Class

Passengers on selected long-haul flights lasting ten and a half or more hours can now relax even more with the new "Dream Collection"

From now on, Lufthansa Business Class passengers on long-haul flights to and from South Africa, Latin and South America and the West Coast of the USA can enjoy an even more relaxed night's sleep. The Lufthansa Dream Collection makes it possible! In addition to a new pillowcase and a large, warm blanket, a comfortable mattress topper makes for beautiful dreams. In addition, our passengers can make themselves comfortable on night flights with the new sleep shirt from Van Laack.

The soft and padded mattress topper was developed especially for Lufthansa in cooperation with the renowned German bed manufacturer "Paradies". While the upper side is made of 100 percent cotton, the underside is made of non-slip terry cloth. This enables an ideal air exchange, which prevents strong heat accumulation. A similarly soft filling is provided by the new blanket and pillow, which provide pleasant warmth and comfort. Both the blanket and the pillowcase are designed in Lufthansa's new brand design. Since Lufthansa is also setting standards in terms of environmental friendliness, the plastic packaging of the blanket was replaced by a paper banderole.

The increase in sleeping comfort in Business Class is symbolic of Lufthansa's premium standard. Last December, the airline was the first western airline to receive the five-star seal from Skytrax, the British management consultancy specialized in aviation.

The Dream Collection will be successively introduced on all other long-haul flights. From June the Dream Collection from Germany will also be available on selected Asian flights. The other long-haul flights will receive the new blankets and pillowcases from autumn 2018.

LH introduces pyjamas and mattresses in Business Class

From now on, select Lufthansa long-haul flights (10.5h or more) now feature the new “Dream Collection” – a larger, warmer blanket, a new pillowcase, a comfortable mattress pad, and a new “sleep shirt” from Van Laack.
Lufthansa’s long-haul flights in Business Class to and from South Africa, Latin America, South America, and the West Coast of the United States feature the new Dream Collection and enhanced amenities ensuring passengers enjoy relaxing sleep.
Starting in June, the Dream Collection will also be available on select flights to/from Asia.
The remaining flights will feature new blankets and pillowcases later in the year.

This is great news, I really prefer changing into PJs on the long haul flights!

You won't get PJs, just a sleep shirt. A comfortable mattress will be welcome. A photo of a mattress on VFT looks nice.

Tiny step in the right direction.
But with more and more airlines going to all aisle access the LH product looks pretty ancient - even with a matress.
royng and 24left like this.

Darn.. DEN-MUC is 10.5 but DEN certainly isn't west coast. I'm assuming this would not contain them..

The matress seems to be a thicker blanket with a very thin padding to level out the bumps. Kinda like my makeshift solution: get a second blanket from the stash above the bulkhead row and make your own matress

BTW, its making an appearance on all flights longer than 10h30m that fly at night. Examples on the VFT thread are SJO-FRA, LAX-MUC, DFW-FRA, PTY-FRA etc. This is contrary to the initial announcement that it will only be ex MUC/FRA ...

No mattresses and PJs on MCO-FRA, which is a real night flight leaving MCO at 20:01 but just a tad too shorter. Many pax skip dinner on board and probably sleep as long as pax on a 17:00 departure from the west coast and would appreciated the new amenities.

But will it be *only* on night flights? So no Gemany-West Coast flights? You could argue that MUC-SFO is a "night flight". Arriving at 7.05pm in California is 4.05am in Munich. Most people will sleep on that flight.

The mattress in the picture actually fits the shape of the seat unlike your spare blanket.

Didn’t they originally announce flights longer than 10 hours? If so I wonder how much they are saving many flights have been excluded? It makes sense for eastbound TATL flights to be included as they are night flights. TATL flights ex-MUC/FRA are (long) day flights.

According to the press release:

“The Dream Collection will be successively introduced on all other long-haul flights. From June the Dream Collection from Germany will also be available on selected Asian flights. The other long-haul flights will receive the new blankets and pillowcases from autumn 2018.”

It still sounds a little vague exactly which route will receive what and when.

Judging by the fact that the PJ pants in F are horrible (and such a difference from the shirt) I don’t think we’re missing much.

They may not be the best but I don't find them to be "horrible" and they have side pockets compared to other carriers' F pants.

Seriously, giving a shirt and no pants?! And you can imagine the beancounter that came up with the "0.5" in 10.5! Pretty lame considering that the hard product looks to be WAY behind the competition.

Out of curiosity I've tried to find what the beancounter has achieved.
(All times are block time according to LH.com)

FRA - ATL 10h10m
FRA - DEN 10h10m
FRA - MIA 10h05m
FRA - SEA 10h10m

Eastbound TATL flights take much shorter, so...
MUC - DEN 10h30m / DEN - MUC 9h45m
FRA - IAH 10h45m / IAH - FRA 9h45m

Will there be PJs on the way back?
