Air New Zealand to put economy travellers to sleep.
Air New Zealand has unveiled a ground-breaking new lie-flat prototype sleep product for economy class travellers.
The Economy Skynest, which provides six full length lie-flat sleep pods, is the result of three years of Air New Zealand research and development.
In preparation for its upcoming Auckland-New York service, which is planned at up to 17 hours 40 minutes one way, the airline is committed to putting more magic back into flying. A clear pain point for economy travellers on long-haul flights is the inability to stretch out. The development of the Economy Skynest is a direct response to that challenge,” says Chief Marketing and Customer Officer Mike Tod.
Air New Zealand will make a final decision on whether to operate the Economy Skynest next year after it has assessed the performance of its inaugural year of Auckland-New York operations.
