Here is an observation I had made:
We have that A is k-connected, we can show that susp A is (k+1)-connected
and then show that loop susp A is k-connected. This gives us a k-connected
map A -> 1 and a k-connected map loop susp A -> 1. This gives us a diagram
which commutes with A and loop susp A in the top corners and 1 in the
bottom. The LHS composition is homotopic to the RHS composition hence
naming eta : A -> loop susp A, we have eta o unitmap being k-connected
hence eta must also be k-connected. This isn't quite there.
Now I was hoping to use the fact that loop spaces are pullbacks hence there
are maps coming out of 1s hence (k+1)-connectedness appears, but I couldn't
get it to work.
