Air New Zealand has revealed “The Economy Skynest” - 6 Bunk Beds for Economy Class passengers
Air New Zealand is once again revolutionizing travel.
First, they introduced the “Skycouch” for Economy Class. Now, they plan to introduce lie-flat beds in Economy Class.
As Air New Zealand operates some of the world’s longest flights, such as their upcoming Auckland to Newark flight, the airline intends to “put more magic back into flying”.
Each Skynest pod/bed will measure around 200cm (78 inches) long, and around 58cm (23 inches) wide.
Every “Skynest” features six of these pods so they could add more depending on available space or demand for the pods.
Air New Zealand will decide in 2021 whether to introduce the Skynest or not after assessing the performance of its Auckland to Newark flight during the first year of operations.
