The cotton rich long-sleeved pyjamas have been redesigned by Qantas to feature a new raglan-style top with a seam from the underarm to the collar bone and draw-string pant in a more relaxed fit.
The unisex pyjamas remain grey, while the Kangaroo logo has been updated and changed to a navy blue. The shirt also features QANTAS printed on the back of the neck.
Qantas Head of Customer Product & Service Development Phillip Capps said the airline was pleased to give the iconic Qantas Business class pyjamas a fresh look, in line with the new Qantas branding.
“There is no doubt that our Business class sleepwear is an important aspect of the overall customer experience. They’ve become part of the inflight dress code with about 95 per cent of people not only wearing them on board, but also taking them home,” he said.
“We introduced sleepwear in the late 1990s and with each design update throughout the years, we’ve made tweaks and adjustments to ensure they offer style and much needed comfort when you are laying in them for up to 15 hours.”
The new-look pyjamas will be available on flights progressively from 7 November.
Qantas offers pyjamas to customers travelling in Business on select international flights between Australia and Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, Hawaii, Santiago, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Tokyo, Johannesburg, Shanghai, Vancouver, Dubai and London.
Qantas recently updated the sleepwear for customers travelling in First class, designed by Australian fashion designer, Martin Grant.
