Air New Zealand unveils new cabins

29 June, 2022

Air New Zealand announced (29-Jun-2022) its Boeing 787 equipment, scheduled to arrive in 2024, will include a new business premier luxe seat, designed for customers looking for more space and privacy, and Skynest sleep pods for economy travellers. Feedback from extensive customer research over five years has highlighted the importance of sleep and the need for more space and comfort. Sustainability has been important in the design process. Using modern fabrics, rather than leather, has saved around one kilogram per business premier and premium economy seat, reducing overall carbon emissions. In premium cabins, the airline will also switch to serviceware that is 20% lighter, helping to reduce carbon emissions, and in economy, the new serviceware will reduce plastic dishes used inflight by 28 million every year. The eight Boeing 787-9s arriving from 2024, and the retrofitted current 787-9 fleet, will have either eight or four business premier luxe seats, 42 or 22 business premier, 52 or 33 premium economy, 125 or 213 economy seats, and specifically on the ultra long haul aircraft, six Skynest sleep pods.
