Qantas customers travelling in First are set for an even better night’s sleep with a new range of luxurious bedding products created exclusively by Australia’s premium home and lifestyle brand, Sheridan, for the airline’s A380 First class suites.
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.
Qantas Head of Customer Product and Service, Phil Capps said the bedding ensemble by Sheridan was part of the airline’s continued investment in passenger comfort on long haul flights.
“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 Mr Capps.
“Sheridan is an expert in comfort and we’re pleased to be working together to provide our customers in First with the ultimate luxury sleep experience.
The Sheridan bedding ensemble has been crafted using natural, luxury materials in neutral and soft earthy tones to match the First class cabin interior.
For the first time, customers will able to choose from a pillow menu featuring a selection of three styles to suit different comfort needs. Set on each seat prior to take off, Sheridan’s Ultimate Comfort Pillow is lightweight and soft with superior head and neck support. The Memory Foam Pillow and Feather & Down Pillow are available on request, all designed to help provide a comfortable rest.
The ensemble also includes a memory foam mattress which moulds to the body’s contours for total comfort and support while providing the pressure point relief advantages of memory foam, as well as super-soft Sheridan sheeting, a duvet cover made from soft-touch tencel, a 100% combed-cotton woven throw and a soft-touch bolster cushion.
Sheridan has also designed a soft baby blanket in pure cotton for infants aged under two years of age travelling on all international services in all cabins. Devoted to safety and comfort, the baby blanket adheres to the highest international safety standards and is approved by Red Nose (SIDs & Kids).
Paul Gould, Sheridan’s Group General Manager, said of the partnership: “Sheridan is celebrating 50 years of beautiful Australian living and we’re proud to partner with Qantas in 2017 to bring our trademark quality, craftsmanship and artistry to their First customers.”
“Our talented team of in-house designers have created a bespoke bedding ensemble that matches the unsurpassed luxury of Qantas’ First class offering. We have also created a beautifully soft baby blanket to ensure that even the tiniest of travelers are comfortable during their flight in all cabins. We’re proud to partner with another iconic Australian brand that shares our ongoing commitment to excellence,” Mr Gould added.
The Sheridan designed baby blanket will be available in Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First on all international services and the new bedding ensemble will be available in First class on A380 services to London, Dubai, Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth progressively from early October 2017.
