Air New Zealand upgrades flights

Article content

27 January 2010

People heading away to family holidays in New Zealand could find that the long-haul flight is no longer a reason to go without sleep for many hours at a time.

The Daily Mail explains that this is because Air New Zealand has introduced a new offer aimed at economy-class passengers.

Called Cuddle Class, this allows couples to purchase a third seat at half price, reports the Daily Mail.

The block of three seats can then be reclined to create a flat cushioned area on which to sleep.

Families taking two children to destinations in New Zealand can also benefit, allowing one parent to share the bed-like platform with their offspring while the Daily Mail suggests that the other takes a normal seat.

Air New Zealand chief, Rob Fyfe, recently commented on the innovations being introduced by the airline in its seating areas.

"The days of sitting in economy and yearning to lie down and sleep are gone; the dream is now a reality," he said.
