American Airlines is the latest airline to introduce branded bedding to the skies of North America. Beginning in December, AA customers seated in long-haul international and transcontinental First or Business class and Premium Economy can enjoy a suite of advanced sleep offerings designed by Casper’s award-winning engineering team.
The Casper line of sleep products will include a mattress pad, duvet, pillow, day blanket, lumbar pillow, pajamas and slippers, with the exact offering varying based on the route.
Casper, famous for its mattresses, studied the travel environment for months to better understand the challenges of in-flight sleep. Casper’s in-house sleep engineers then designed an innovative product suite specifically for air travel and made exclusively for American Airlines.
American put these designs to the test with customers on some of its longest flights, including Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand. The airline also tapped the expertise of some of its most frequent travelers, its flight attendants, for advice on fit, durability and comfort.
“Customers and crew members who tried Casper on our flights said they loved it,” said Kurt Stache, American Airlines senior vice president for Marketing, Loyalty & Sales. “Casper has set a new standard for premium sleep products and our new line showcases their attention to detail and design, and their commitment to providing the best rest possible for American Airlines customers.”
Casper products will be available on traditional long-haul international and transcontinental routes as well as the following shorter-range routes:
- Boston (BOS) – Los Angeles (LAX)
- New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) – Seattle (SEA)
- Miami (MIA) – Seattle (SEA)
- Miami (MIA)– San Francisco (SFO)
- U.S. to Hawaii
- U.S. to Northern Rim of South America (MAR, MAO, BOG, CCS, CLO, GYE, LPB, MDE, UIO, VVI)
