Cuddle for Less on Air New Zealand’s Skycouch This Fall


Cuddle for Less on Air New Zealand’s Skycouch This Fall

Airline offers discounted Skycouch upgrades from Los Angeles to Auckland and London

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (July 15, 2011) – Enjoy more room for less on Air New Zealand. Upgrade to the Skycouch for long haul travel this fall from Los Angeles to Auckland or London and save up to $200 off regular pricing.

Passengers traveling from Los Angeles to London can enjoy discounted Skycouch airfare for travel between September 1 – November 30, 2011. Travelers can upgrade to the Skycouch for an additional $75 for a party of three or $300 for a party of two.

Passengers traveling from Los Angeles to Auckland can take advantage of discounted Skycouch airfare for travel between August 1 – November 30, 2011. Travelers can upgrade to the Skycouch for an additional $100 for a party of three or $600 for a party of two.

Passengers must book their discounted airfare by July 31, 2011. Discounted rates on the Skycouch are available through all Air New Zealand sales channels.

The Skycouch is a trio of three economy seats that together create a flexible space for a number of uses – an area to relax and stretch out or for the kids to use as a play area. With the touch of a button, a footrest pulls up from under each of the three seats to create a flat, versatile space. Also dubbed “cuddle class,” Air New Zealand’s Skycouch option is available on the first 10 outboard rows of the economy cabin in its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on flights operating between Auckland and London, via Los Angeles.

Onboard, passengers enjoy award-winning Kiwi wines, renowned cuisine, on-demand entertainment and even a fun in-flight safety video.

For direct booking, please visit www.airnewzealand.com or call your travel agent.
