Emirates unveils new business class loungewear set

Emirates has unveiled its new pyjamas for business class passengers after much anticipation.

The Dubai-based airline said passengers on the pointy end of flights of nine hours or more will receive the complimentary set that features a cowl neck top, drawstring pants, matching eye mask and slippers.

Passengers on flights that have a duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes or more don’t entirely miss out — they will receive free slippers and eye mask sets.

“The loungewear is designed to be the ideal ‘flight fit’, perfect for sleeping in but also suitable to wear for a social drink at the A380 on-board lounge and a casual outfit that takes you from the aircraft to arrivals in style,” an Emirates spokesperson told news.com.au.

“The loungewear was designed to reflect contemporary athleisure trends and be the best-in-class for comfort, style, and reusability.”

Passengers should find the light blue-coloured top and pants “lightweight” and “breathable” thanks to its super soft premium modal material.

“The botanic fibres and jersey knit style means it has an “elegant drape that flatters various body types and ensures the super soft and stretchy feel,” the spokesperson said.

The kit was designed in-house by the Emirates team and has been in development for more than a year.

According to the airline, during the trial period on routes to and from New York and Boston, customers shared highly positive feedback on the loungewear, with sets being taken home by customers to be worn again.

The multimillion-dollar venture forms part of Emirates’ ongoing investment into “elevating customer” experience.

Other investments include retrofitting 120 Emirates aircraft, including its Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ERs. The cabin upgrades were announced in November 2021, and work began in August 2022. At the time, the airline detailed that the 120 aircraft will have upgraded cabin interiors, new menus and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Each aircraft will also receive the new premium economy cabin, as well as new carpets, stairs, and panels.

Meanwhile, Jetstar just announced it is ditching its bright orange cabin crew uniforms after 20 years.

Instead, its revamped the attire to feature a softer orange and blue with three options available for crew.

“The evolution from black to a dynamic blue and orange palette reflects Jetstar’s transformative journey over the past two decades, while the looks were intended to feel like pieces one might instinctively pack for a holiday, whether it’s a linen jacket and cotton chinos, a shirt dress, or a smart polo,” said Aussie fashion designer, Genevieve Smart, who created the looks.
