Air New Zealand completely redesigns seating

Forward-thinking airline Air New Zealand has really taken a step into the future with a new cabin design that totally enhances the comfort of passengers on long-haul flights. And not just in First Class either! They made extensive changes in the Economy and Economy Plus cabins too. The picture above is actually from their new Economy seating where couples or families can purchase all 3 seats in a row for only 2 1/2 times the single price. The three seats then convert into a completely flat bed.

If you want real comfort though check out these pictures of the new Business Class.
