Rebecca Vallance designs pyjamas for Qantas Business Class

Qantas will operate three weekly flights on the route, increasing to four per week from October 2023. Business Class guests flying on the new route will be offered a navy sleeper suit emblazoned with a monogram of the Qantas ‘roo’ and a Rebecca Vallance logo.
