An airline pampers economy class passengers with berths


Skynest cabs on European and American flights promise a relaxing journey.

Anyone who has traveled on a long-distance bus knows exactly that even between two Hungarian cities it is not pleasant to wrestle with our feet on our necks, and this is double or more triple in the even narrower tourist classes of airplanes, which force us into a claustrophobic experience.

However, Air New Zealand believes that cheap (bb) tickets could offer more than Spartan conditions, so it will try to make the longest flights more bearable in the future with a special service.

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which will be included in the airline’s fleet, will provide 6 berths for economy class passengers on flights to Europe or the United States. The service, called Skynest, offers 200×85-centimeter rest beds with bedding, a charging port and a reading lamp. An important stipulation is that a passenger can use Skynest for up to 4 hours, for which a surcharge of an unknown amount will be charged.

The Skynest, which does not lack retractable curtains, required only 5 seats, while the Boeing 787-9 will only be available at Air New Zealand from 2024 onwards, so there is still some time to sit for those looking to relax, with their legs and elbows carefully retracted.
