Air New Zealand has announced the pending debut of its “Skycouch” option, which will allow passengers to fold out a row of three economy seats into one flat surface. The airline’s fleet of Boeing 777-300 operating between Auckland and Los Angeles or London will be equipped with 22 Skycouch units, beginning in April 2011. The company plans to make its “cuddle class” an option on all long-haul aircrafts by early 2012. For a couple traveling, buying the middle seat will cost an extra $1,400 per person, but the total cost for the trio of seats (averaging about $7,600), is substantially less than the cost of one lie-flat business class seat (nearly $10,000).
