The Economy Skycouch, available on Air New Zealand’s Boeing 777 and 787-9 aircrafts, transforms a row of three Economy Class seats into one flat space to maximize comfort. Adjustable footrests and armrests allow each passenger to personalize their Skycouch and is a great option for families, couples, or solo travelers just wanting extra personal space.
“Our supplier relations team is constantly working with our airline partners to find new ways we can improve our product offerings, and our ancillary attachment team continues to lead the industry in integrating these complex, added-value products on our sites,” said Sam S. Jain, CEO of Fareportal. “Air New Zealand is changing the way passengers fly in Economy Class and we are excited to be a part of their growth and innovation.”
