Air New Zealand upgrades its Skycouch to deliver comfortable air traveling for individuals, couples, or families. The Skycouch was first showcased back in 2010 and essentially allows flyers to purchase a row of seats with the option for it to be transformed into a Skycouch seat. The elevated new upgrade receives additional footrests that can be opened up to again, transform into a couch across the row of three seats. Additionally, there are also a supply of blankets and pillows.
Some elements of the Skycouch that make it couple-friendly and efficient for families is the 'cuddle belt' and the 'infant pod.' The cuddle belt ensures safety for more than one traveler, providing ease when flying. The infant pod is a bassinet feature that provides additional protection in the air.
