Emirates has launched new loungewear for business class customers on long-haul services.
Passengers on flights of nine hours or more will be offered the new pyjamas featuring “a relaxed cowl neck top and drawstring pants”, as well as matching slippers and eye mask.
The Gulf carrier said that the loungewear had been designed to be “flight fit” – in other words suitable for both sleeping in, and wearing while moving about the aircraft or walking to arrivals after the flight.
The light blue loungewear is available in two sizes, and is made of “super soft premium modal material”. Emirates also said that “The botanic fibres and jersey knit style means the loungewear has an elegant drape that flatters various body types”.
Business class customers on flights of two and a half hours or more will receive the newly designed slippers and eye mask.
Emirates said that the loungewear had been in development for more than a year, and had been trialed on routes to New York and Boston where it had received “highly positive feedback”.
Back in 2016 the airline launched what it said was “the world’s first moisturising pyjamas” for its first class customers, featuring patented “Hydra Active Microcapsule Technology” which releases naturally-moisturising sea kelp during movement.
The subject of pyjamas being offered to premium customers inflight is one that attracts a lot of interest from our readers.
