Economy sleeping arrangement arrives

Air New Zealand says its much anticipated Skycouch Economy and Spaceseat Premium Economy seats should make their initial public showing towards the end of this month with the anticipated introduction of the first of five Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The first 11 window rows in Economy Class will feature the Skycouch, which folds out to provide a space for kids to play or two adults to sleep but there are no privacy curtains.

The 338-seat aircraft will have 44 seats in Business Premier, 50 seats in Premium Economy Spaceseat and 244 seats in Economy.  The airline plans to reduce its Boeing 747 fleet from six to just two with the arrival of the new ‘planes. www.airnewzealand.com
