Air New Zealand has recently revealed their new ‘Skycouch’ seating option on their long haul flights.

Heralded as the first ‘lie-down economy bed’, it’s being called the first major improvement in economy class travel comfort in 20 years.

How the Skycouch works
Two people buy a row of three seats together. These can then be converted by moving the specially designed foot rests up to form a slim, but nevertheless flat, bed.

The third seat comes at half price.

So – would you pay the extra to get a Skycouch and if so, who would you want to share it with?

Suggestions from the Skyscanner office included:

  • Kate Moss – doesn’t take up much room
  • Pamela Anderson – extra pillows
  • Jessica Rabbit – how much room can a drawing take up?
  • Keira Knightly – gets boring quickly, so easy to fall asleep
