    I am trying to figure out/keep track of what to expect on my 5 upcoming long haul flights for a trip to Asia/Australia. I dont have the best back so hoping for mattress pads. On the pajama front, just want to figure out if i need sweat pants or not...

    I cant imagine someone has flown all 5 of these flights but maybe between a few of you I will be able to get the info..

    Just including the 5 long haul flights, obviously my HKG to PVG and SYD to MEL arent going to have a pad or Pj's

    AA from DFW to NRT- Business
    JAL from NRT to SIN- Business
    BA from SIN to SYD- First
    VA from MEL to HKG- Business
    Delta from PVG to LAX- Business


    All those Business class flights dont have a First class if that matters...

    Anyways i know this probably one of the lesser important questions posted on here but if you happen to know if a mattress pad and/or pajamas are provided on these 5 flights i would appreciate you letting me know

    Thanks in advance

    AA only offers PJs and mattress pads on DFW-HKG and LAX-HKG/SYD/AKL, not to NRT, unfortunately.

    And I don't think JAL offers either on NRT to SIN, which is scheduled for less than 7 hours.

    And it looks like DL does not offer pajamas anymore:
    https://onemileatatime.com/united-business-class-pajamas/

    And unless things have changed in the last 15 months, no mattress pads either:
    https://thepointsguy.com/reviews/delta-one-suite-777-refurb/
    "Delta doesn’t provide mattress pads like its domestic competitors American and United do in their business-class cabins, but these seats are very comfortable on their own, and often I get too hot while trying to sleep if there’s another layer of bedding to deal with."

    Finally, not sure about the BA flight. I am fairly certain that BA F includes pajamas and a mattress pad, but SYD to SIN is barely 8 hours. I don't know if they offer it on every route.

    Virgin Australia offers both in business - see Lucky's review:
    https://onemileatatime.com/virgin-australia-business-class-777-review/
    But again, MEL to HKG is about 9 hours versus 14.5 for MEL - LAX, so YMMV.

    Wow this is totally unreal to me. How can it be a 13 hour & 35 minute listed (12 in reality probably) and you dont get a mattress pad? The Pajamas are one thing, i mean i can bring sweats or gym shorts but a matttress pad. So how is it any diff than flying in that same BE Super Diamond seat on my LAX to DFW flight i take once a month? I really cant believe i dont get a mattress pad on such a long flight. I have to make sure to get an extra blanket i guess. One blanket as theh "pad" and one as an actual blanket.

    I now recall reading the same Delta post you linked and ya so PJ's or pads on an 11 hour flight home.

    JAL i was just now able to find something- i get PJ's but NO mattress pad

    Do you happen to know on the BA from SIN to SYD or MEL to HKG on VA? i cant find a statement

    You might get PJs on the BA flight. I got them on the 9h IAH-LHR flight in F.

    Try tweeting Virgin & BA to see if they respond!
