Air New Zealand's customer experience manager Anita Hawthorne expects the changes to be popular with family groups.

She explained: 'The Skycouch has proven to be a real game changer in the Economy cabin. While we initially marketed it to couples, we quickly found the product suited parents with young families especially well.

'Parents can relax while their children are able to have their own space and flat area to play without interrupting other passengers.

'Through this process, we've spoken to many customers who have travelled on the Skycouch and their feedback has helped to inform the updates and refinements we’re introducing this year.'

Pending certification and regulatory approvals, the airline plans to make the modified Skycouch product available progressively onboard its Boeing 777 and 787-9 Dreamliner fleets in the coming months.
