American will be introducing Casper mattress pads, duvets, pillots, blankets, lumbar pillows, pajamas and slippers.
New comfort amenities aren’t limited to long haul international. They’ll be introduced to premium transcon business and first class routes and also premium economy as well.
They’ve already been tested, apparently, on the Los Angeles – Auckland route though I wasn’t aware of this. Los Angeles – Auckland, Sydney, and Hong Kong along with Dallas – Hong Kong have been premium roues where business class has received elevated amenities including pajamas over the past couple of years.
Specific routes where some elements of the new offerings will be available beyond transatlantic, transpacific, deep South America and the New York – Los Angeles and San Francisco premium markets include:
- Boston – Los Angeles
- New York JFK – Seattle
- Miami – Seattle and San Francisco
- US – Northern South America including Bogata, Guayaquil, Caracas, Maracaibo, and more
I’ll be asking questions about which items are offered at which flights and in which classes of service shortly.
Long haul first class

Business class for non-premium Pacific destinations
