Sleep Soundly at 40,000ft

In an effort to ensure the best night’s sleep on its long-haul flights, American Airlines has teamed up with sleep product gurus Casper to introduce new amenities to the airline’s long-haul routes.

It’s not always easy to sleep on planes, even if you’re travelling in the comfort of business class or first class. However, airlines know how important a good night’s sleep is for modern travellers jetting across the globe and are always trying to innovate their inflight product to make it easier for you to count Zs at 40,000 feet.

Passengers traveling in American Airlines’ Flagship First, Flagship Business or newly-launched Premium Economy cabins on trans-continental or trans-Pacific routes can now enjoy new mattress pads, duvets, pillows, day blankets, lumbar pillows, pajamas, and slippers from linen brand Casper.

The company’s award-winning engineering team, who studied the travel environment of long-haul flights for months to better understand the challenges of inflight sleep, tested out more than a dozen versions of the onboard pillow, with a variety of fibers, to find the perfect balance, while the new signature duvet, available exclusively on AA, is inspired by performance outerwear and features sewn-through seams that create small, rectangular chambers for a consistent fill.

The Casper products will be available on all long-haul American Airlines international routes as well as several trans-continental routes.
