Late last year, Air New Zealand took delivery of their first of five 777-300 aircraft. Currently making runs on the Auckland to Melbourne route, it will transition to the Auckland-Los Angeles-London route beginning in April 2011. This aircraft features an incredibly comfortable looking Premium Economy section, along with the introduction of Air New Zealand’s exclusive Skycouch. Several of the 3-seater economy sections have a special legrest that extends upward to create a couch-like setting large enough for two people to snuggle into horizontally. Also termed Cuddle Class by the airline, it will carry a premium over the regular economy fare, although official pricing is not yet available for comparison as of the posting of this article.
Air New Zealand is giving a pair of tickets in the Skycouch away every day between now and Valentine’s Day. You’ll need a Twitter account & email address, and full details on how to enter can be found here. (Tip of the hat to Airline Reporter.) I’m entering every day, so for those of you who follow me on Twitter you’ll see my answers to the daily questions Air New Zealand is asking. The giveaway, by the way, is for two people to fly from Los Angeles to either London or Auckland, so it would be perfect for me since I’m local. Should I win, I’ll have to decide who is snuggle-worthy to join me.
