Hats off to NZ for doing something to both Economy and Premium Economy. So many of their flights are ultra-long-haul (for me, ten plus hours in the air is ultra long haul), this would be an ideal solution, esp. for a couple or a family with a small child.
Apart from seatbelts, what about being seated on your own when loads are light – will the seats be operating as normal seats, or could you make a bed out of it?
The new Premium Economy looks super. Air NZ already serve a business class style meal (take note other carriers) which makes this product very attractive. And the new Business Premier obviously works – to the point where Air NZ have a new patent on the seat.
Anyone note the new crew uniform? That pink sure is…um…different.
Well done, Air NZ! Top carrier for innovation 2010, I think!
