Cuddle class

In an important transformation from “cattle class” to “cuddle class”, Air New Zealand is set to unveil the world’s first passenger plane with a radically redesigned interior that will allow economy class flyers to turn their seats into beds.

The idea is that two passengers travelling together should buy their seats at full price and pay about half-price for a third seat in the same row. By retracting the armrests and raising footrests, it forms a Skycouch, on which the two passengers can stretch out and relax, the Telegraph reported. Around 30 other airlines are now interested in licensing the design.
