Qantas' new pillow menu will make your first class dreams even sweeter

Travelling first class is always luxurious, but Qantas customers are going to be even more spoiled thanks to its new pillow menu. Passengers on select long-haul flights on the airline’s A380 fleet will be able to choose from one of three different pillow styles to make their sleep experience even sweeter.

The pillows are from Australian home and lifestyle brand, Sheridan, and its Ultimate Comfort Pillow will be set on each seat prior to take-off. It’s lightweight and soft with superior head and neck support, but the Memory Foam Pillow and Feather & Down Pillow are also available on request, to give passengers a choice and ensure a better night’s sleep. The Sheridan bedding ensemble has been crafted using natural, luxury materials in neutral and soft earthy tones to match the first class cabin interior.

The ensemble also includes a memory foam mattress which moulds to the body’s contours for total comfort and support. The new bedding range marks the first stage of Qantas’ major A380 fleet cabin upgrade, including refurbished first class suites with new contoured cushioning and a larger, higher resolution entertainment screen. “A comfortable bed combined with our focus on inflight nutrition and wellbeing are all part of our strategy to help our customers feel energised when they arrive at their destination,” said Qantas Head of Customer Product and Service, Phil Capps.
