Emirates flight.do they have pillows and blankets in Economy

Hi...now this may sound like a pretty dumb question but this is the first time I have flown "long haul" and overnight so I was wondering if Emirates provide a small pillow and light blanket so that I will be able to get some sleep.

Sadly I could not afford one of the lovely "bed type" seats in business class but I am hoping to be able to catch a few hours sleep on our flight from Melbourne to KL and then maybe a couple more on the KL to Dubai leg of the flight....then hopefully I will be able to stay awake from Dubai to Paris.

Any other hints about being able to sleep on flights will be welcome.

Our flight leaves at 0235 am on Saturday!!

Some economy flights give out a small kit, toothbrush, shades, socks, and on others nothing (usually daytime flights), just toothbrushes/shaving kits in the washrooms which do go quickly.

Jim-Jams in economy your joking! You dont even get them in Business not even for a night flight only First, along with slippers.

The only long haul flights, I've been on that provide pillows and thin blankets F O C are BEA and Quantas

Quantus being the best.

This airline called Quantas ... where are they from?

I've flown Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Cathay in economy (long haul) and there's always been a pillow and blanket, all wrapped up in plastic, waiting for me on my seat when I've boarded.
