Premium Economy booming for Air New Zealand

AIR NEW ZEALAND is predicting dramatic growth in premium travel, specifically Premium Economy, with its new fleet of Boeing 777-300 aircraft which has 39% in this cabin than on its 777-200 aircraft and 28% more than on its 747-400 fleet.  To be introduced with the new aircraft later this year the “Spaceseat” is an original concept for this class in the airline industry, providing flexibility and privacy through the angle of the seats.  They will be configured in a 2+2+2 layout, compared to the industry standard 3+3+3 in 777-200s.  The centre seats angle outwards from each other, providing ultimate privacy or the space can be combined so couples can snuggle together or even dine at a common table.  The sets of two window seats are angled so as to offer the ultimate privacy for individual passengers. www.airnewzealand.com
