Westin Heavenly In Flight bedding

Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines began offering new in-flight bedding products in its BusinessElite business-class cabins.  The new blankets and pillows, created in partnership with Westin Hotels & Resorts, are supplied to passengers on all international Delta flights with BusinessElite cabins as well as on Delta’s transcon flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.  They are also available on Delta’s Atlanta-Honolulu route.

On a recent flight from New York to Los Angeles on a newly-refurbished Boeing 767-300ER (known internally as a 76Z), I had the opportunity to test out the new, all-white bedding.

Upon boarding, I noticed that the new white comforters and pillows (sealed individually in plastic bags to keep them clean) had been placed at each seat.  While I understand the need for keeping them clean, the plastic bag greatly diminishes bedding’s visual presentation, as it looks unfinished.

Foto1At my seat, 1C, I found a Westin Heavenly In Flight pillow measuring 18×22” and comforter, which measures 48×81”.  The hypoallergenic pillow, which is almost the size of a standard pillow is encased in an 18×23” pillowcase that felt soft to the touch, thanks to its microfiber fabric, The pillowcase closes with a French envelope design and the pillow itself is filled with EnviroLoft, a down alternative.  Had my flight been over 12 hours, I would have also received a lumbar pillow.

The 262-thread-count quilted duvet had just the right amount of fluffiness.  On one side was the Heavenly signature herringbone stripe, while the other side was soft, brushed microfiber.  The duvet has a baffle box construction that keeps the fill from moving around too much.
