Air NZ to increase Premium seating 

Air NZ is to spend over $100 million increasing the number of premium seats on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and refurbishing the Boeing 777-300 fleet in response to customer trends.

Increasing demand for premium travel means from February 2017, the Boeing 777-300 fleet's Premium Economy cabin will be progressively refurbished to incorporate Air New Zealand’s luxury leather Premium Economy seat which first debuted on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and has proven to be extremely popular with customers.

The new Premium Economy seat will progressively replace the Spaceseat onboard Boeing 777-300 aircrafts and increase the number of Premium Economy seats onboard. These changes ensure a consistent Premium Economy product is offered across Air NZ's long haul fleet.

Please be aware that as the refurbishment programme rolls out there will be a mix of Premium Economy seats onboard the Boeing 777-300 aircrafts and for operational reasons Air NZ are unable to confirm in advance whether customers booked in Premium Economy will be seated in a Spaceseat or a new Premium Economy seat.
