As of today, passengers flying on Delta’s International business class ‘Delta One’ will be laying back in their own sleep suits on flights between Seattle and Shanghai, Detroit and Shanghai, Seattle and Beijing, Detroit and Beijing, and Seattle and Hong Kong.
Launching a similar product to that found on sister airline Virgin Atlantic, the new sleep suits, available in small/medium and large/extra large, will join the airline’s other long haul routes between Los Angeles and Sydney and Los Angeles and Shanghai that were launched back in December 2015.

The new sleep suit joins a wave of improvements going on at the carrier, which include a new wave of Delta Sky Clubs, fully flat-bed seats with direct aisle access, Westin Heavenly In-Flight Bedding, noise-reducing headsets and luxury Tumi amenity kits complete with eye shades, ear plugs and cool stripy on-board socks.
“Expanding our loungewear to China is just another way we are investing in the overall experience for our customers,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President – In-Flight Service. “When customers settle in with us on board for a long flight, we want it to feel like home, and expanding our loungewear service, complete with a full flat-bed seat and a Westin Heavenly duvet, is increasing comfort like never before.”
There is also good news for foodies, Delta has been enhancing its chef-curated food programs featuring the culinary talents of Chef Linton Hopkins, Michelle Bernstein and Michael Chiarello on a wide selection of transoceanic routes. The menus highlight the airline’s industry-leading focus on seasonal and regionally-inspired cuisine.
