Delta announced that they would be adding some swanky new loungewear for Delta One passengers on select flights from Los Angeles. Starting today, December 15, Delta One passengers flying between LAX and Sydney (SYD), and LAX and Shanghai (PVG) will be receiving these new amenities.

Delta One Sleep Suit

Here’s what Delta has to say about the loungewear:

The sleep and lounge suits are the latest in a number of enhancements Delta has made in the Delta One cabin including full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access, Westin Heavenly In-Flight Bedding, noise-reducing headsets and Tumi amenity kits complete with eye shades, ear plugs and striped on-board socks, among other items. Delta One customers are also now treated to a culinary experience inspired by the flavors of the season and a wine program developed with wines from acclaimed global vintners. 

Beginning in March 2016, Delta will add the light gray cotton loungewear to all its flights between the U.S. and China (Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai). Customers will be able to choose between a small/medium and large/extra-large unisex suit and are encouraged to take the outfits with them to use at home, in the hotel or on future Delta flights.

Bottom Line

If you happen to be flying between LAX and Sydney or Shanghai in Delta One, look out for the loungewear, but as Delta mentions coming in March 2016, it will be rolled out on all their flights between the U.S. and China.

My guess (nothing confirmed from Delta) that if this is perceived well from Delta fliers, I would expect these to be making their mark on other long haul Delta flights in the future as well.

Report back if you’re able to try out the new Delta PJ’s on your next flight!

  1. I’m sure there’s a cultural reason for adding these but it’s bad business not to offer on all flights over 10 hours in business-class, in my humble opinion. The same is true for the slippers, which Delta provides in business-class on all flights to and from Asia. If I pay $10,000 for a business-class ticket to Tokyo or Hong Kong, I should get slippers — especially for 14-plus hours to/from New York. To say nothing of the 18 hours to/from South Africa.

  2. Slippers are a particularly Asian amenity, though more specifically Japanese. To be culturally appropriate for South Africa, one would go bare foot…as I’ve noticed not a few passengers go on some flights in business and domestic F! The media release says all overnight business flights will get the PJs by March. This is likely a supply issue since the decision was made on a short time frame it seems. Given all the eligible flights DL has, it would take almost 1,000 a day to supply them, not to mention the logistics of getting the PJs to various stations.
