Words by Tim Phin
A week in Los Angeles after travelling all the way from New Zealand is exhausting, especially if you’re there on business and don’t have time for jetlag! The same applies coming home when I’ve got heaps to do back on the ground in Auckland.
So I jumped at the chance of been able to travel to and from Los Angeles on the on Air New Zealand’s Skycouch for Remix Magazine’s big week in Hollywood.
Air New Zealand’s Skycouch is basically three seats that turn into a couch. The footrests click up and flatten out, creating a mattress across the whole three seats. I was able to sit up and work on my computer with the power outlets, which are in all the seats on the 777-300s.
When it was time to sleep, I was able to curl up and sleep on my side. Being able to lie down and sleep the whole time made a huge difference! In Los Angeles I was able to get to meetings right away feeling well rested. Same deal coming back home – I slept so well on the plane last night I was back in the office this morning!
It’s a great option for those who travel regularly on business and want the comfort of a proper lie down without having to fork out for Business Premium. It would also suit families travelling with one child or one adult with two children, because it gives them more space to use however they want.
Upgrading to the Skycouch is only an extra $400 on top of your ticket. Trust me – as soon as you lie down to go to sleep, you realize the $400 was totally worth it!
