Air New Zealand's Sky Couches
The first eleven rows of Air New Zealand’s economy class will now contain 22 “sky couches."
The first eleven rows of Air New Zealand’s economy class will now contain 22 new “sky couches.” Added this past December, these couches allow fliers to fully lay down together as the footrest can be brought up to enable the seats to become a flat couch. It's a perfect arrangement for parents flying with small children as well. In terms of payment, each couple pays for their own seat and then the 3rd seat is approximately half the price.
The first routes that offer “sky couches” to travelers will be between Auckland and Los Angeles in December 2010 and Auckland to London in April 2011.
