Airline "Cuddle Class" Has Arrived

"Cuddle class" is an innovative seat design developed to Air New Zealand that has given coach passengers the first real opportunity to lie flat for sleep on long flights. To create the extra space, three seats in a row have fold-away armrests and a padded foot-rest panel that flips up and locks into place, reports WSJ. Two passengers take up three seats and pay an average of half the cost of the third seat.


  1. I think there are other market forces here, since it takes about 37 hours to fly to New Zealand from most of inhabited world.

  2. They must have hired really short models for this picture. I'm pretty sure that even if I sat completely upright (which would be impossible with the curvature of the airplane), my feet would still stick out into the aisle.
