Emirates Introducing Pajamas In Business Class

Emirates Introducing Pajamas In Business Class

23

Emirates has just announced a very nice enhancement to its business class experience.

Emirates adds pajamas on flights of over nine hours

As of February 1, 2024, Emirates will be introducing new amenities for business class passengers, which will automatically be distributed upon boarding:

  • On flights of nine hours or more, Emirates business class passengers will receive a set of pajamas, plus slippers and eye masks
  • On flights of 2hr30min or more, Emirates business class passengers will receive slippers and eye masks

These complimentary amenities will be available to enjoy onboard, and can then also be taken home. The new loungewear set for business class passengers is comprised of a relaxed cowl neck top and drawstring pants. The loungewear is designed to reflect athleisure trends, and is in a light blue color, and available in two sizes.

It’s described as being “perfect for sleeping in, but also suitable to wear for a social drink at the A380 onboard lounge, or as a casual outfit that takes you from aircraft to arrivals in style” (now that I’m a bit skeptical of, hah).

Emirates states that these new amenities have been in development for more than a year, and are designed in-house by the Emirates team. The airline had even been trialing this on select routes to New York and Boston, and it’s now being rolled out on a wider basis based on positive feedback.

Emirates’ new business class amenities

This is a very nice investment from Emirates

Emirates is one of the world’s best known airline brands, and the company has an amazing reputation. When people think of Emirates, they immediately think of a luxury airline. That’s largely thanks to the halo effect of the carrier’s A380s, from the first class shower suite, to the business class bar.

However, the reality for a lot of business class passengers is very different. The backbone of Emirates’ fleet is the 777, and the airline continues to have angled business class seats in a 2-3-2 configuration on these planes. Not only that, but Emirates’ business class soft product doesn’t really compete with rivals like Qatar Airways.

Emirates doesn’t have dine on demand, hasn’t offered pajamas, etc. So it’s nice to see the airline investing in actually making its product competitive, as several top airlines now offer pajamas in business class. Interestingly Gulf carriers seem to be the most consistent with offering this, so I’m curious if we see Etihad match as well now.

Emirates’ new business class amenities

Bottom line

As of February 2024, Emirates is introducing new amenities in business class. On flights of over nine hours, passengers will receive complimentary pajamas, slippers, and eye masks, while slippers and eye masks will be offered on all flights of over 2hr30min. That is a very nice improvement from Emirates, and I’m sure it’s something many passengers will appreciate.

What do you make of Emirates’ new amenities?

    Would like to have heard that any overnight flight would get the full set. London to dubai overnight would be ideal for trying out the new pj's, nearly 7 hours pj's would be nice. Maybe they could consider all night time flights to get these.

  2. Randi Jacklin Guest

    I have a pair of these and an desperately trying to find out who makes them as I would buy more!! If anyone knows please share.

  3. Margaret Guest

    Looks nice from the picture. If we are all in our jarmies we might get mistaken for the surgical operating team taking a break before starting their next case
    Not really, I am soooo looking forward to my pjs cause I always travel BC EK & this next trip will see me in the gear.

  4. MiltonS Guest

    Checked with Emirates that if you have a connecting flight that would bring the total hours above 9 hours it would not count too.

  5. TB Guest

    I have flight from DXB to IAH (16.35hours)on 1/2/2024. No any pajamas or even any information about this but there has eyelashes with the new pack already. I will ask about my pajamas to aircrews on the returning flight 3/2/2024 (including pajamas for the first flight also ).

  6. SharonC Guest

    Bit stingy still. Flights over 9hrs? Hold on, most ex-Europe flights are about 6.5hrs, especially from the UK and Scandinavian countries and you can easily get some sleep time on that length of flight……but no, no PJ’s for us!

  7. Rob Guest

    Bit of a first world problem and not very planet friendly tbh but who wrote an article spelling pyjamas pajamas?

  8. WIN Guest

    Pajamas will be nice. Why only for 9 hr flights? I can understand for flights less than 4 hours but if you are competing the Qatar style they are gracious and gives for flights less than 9 hours.
    My real and recent disappointment is the 2 3 2 seat configuration in the 777 business class for some airlines. No privacy and the seat/ bed is too cramped.

  9. Carrigvet Guest

    Finally Emirates have been shamed in to providing pyjamas for business class. It's only been 7 years since qantas code share passengers started asking for pyjamas on over night flights. Perhaps so many passengers wearing Qatar night gear prompted Emirates to wake up .now they need to fix business class on their 777s as it's no longer competitive

  10. Zenobia Guest

    The same for ladies? And what about kids?

  11. Crosscourt Guest

    I've said it all along, emirates is an overcrated airline. And do these PJ pants have pockets?

  12. Math Guest

    Learn from Air India business class..they provide pyjamas even for 4 hours on flying time and the price is very comparative...services are much better than other airlines..

  13. Global travel magazine Guest

    Meanwhile their economy is to be brutally honest, sub par at best. Adding insult to injury, emirates have become over reliant on their brand and charge exorbitant fares.

  14. Vivek Guest

    Seriously? Now? What were you doing so far? Qatar airways has it for over a year now. I honestly think Emirates is overhyped airline. They don’t come anywhere close to service, quality of Qatar!

    1. VT-CIE Diamond

      I’m afraid it’s not the way you think. Surely you have the understanding that QR’s unparallelled reputation comes at the cost of the wellbeing of its employees? I haven’t heard as many sordid tales from the Emirati airlines, EK and EY, as I have from Qatar.

      That said, EK does seem to be acting a bit like BA at times — we’ll have the world’s best F product but we won’t roll it out on...

      That said, EK does seem to be acting a bit like BA at times — we’ll have the world’s best F product but we won’t roll it out on more than nine planes for nine years (until, ahem, 2026). At least BA manages to do ‘just about enough’ in J, but EK’s J on the 777 remains as woeful as it was a decade ago… but EK knows that their cachet and brand recognition is immense, so they see no need to change. Show them the glamour and they will come by the dozen.

  15. yoloswag420 Guest

    How about they introduce direct aisle access on their 777s? No set of PJs will entice me enough to endure dozens of hours in their godforsaken 2-3-2 business class

  16. Patti Guest

    PERFECT timing!

    Flying them from JFK to CGK in a bit over 2 months!

    Maybe I can retire my Qantas and AA ones now.

  17. misterpoppins Member

    Very nice. Too bad the JFK-MXP flight doesn’t qualify at just under 8 hours. Would be nice for the overnight flight.

    1. Mike O. Guest

      I remember years ago, you still got a pair of pajamas on CX on YVR-JFK albeit in F. And if you were coming all the way from HKG, you got a second pair as you had to disembark in YVR.

    2. KD Guest

      It was a good way to stock up on CX F PJs. I went to the shop in HK with the coupon that came with CX's PJ to buy more, but the organic cotton version was exclusively available inflight.

    3. brendo Guest

      I was so excited when I read the headline and am now sad. I am slightly hopeful they might distribute them since the flight does continue onto dubai but I doubt it.

    4. Dominic Kivni Guest

      JFK-MXP doesn't qualify, but EWR-ATH is over 9 hours both directions...

  18. KD Guest

    Always nice to get PJ in J. These look comfy and stylish enough to take home. Will try to request it on my next EK flight. EK, LH, and CX are my favorite F PJs.
