Alas, I am not going on a transatlantic flight. On Monday, I attended a pop-up event for Air New Zealand. I was excited to try out their immersive flight experience, and see why they keep getting voted Airline of the Year. It turns out that Air New Zealand is full of style and comfort.
First of all, there are some seriously comfortable seats. Even the Economy seats were nice. And Air New Zealand offer Economy Skycouch – which means that one button turns your seat into a sofa (the footrest comes out to create a bigger area). My daughter has been on loads of long-haul flights and she always had trouble sleeping. Only when flights were empty and she was able to lie flat on her stomach was she able to sleep. Skycouch is basically the answer to every parent’s flying problem.
Besides comfy seats, Air New Zealand has some lovely food on offer and friendly service. And don’t worry if you’re not planning to visit New Zealand. They fly non-stop to Los Angeles daily. That’s right, you could visit the best America has to offer – California. There are mountains, and beaches, and wine. Surely you’ve heard of ‘wine country’. And imagine driving along the coast or hiking amongst the redwoods. You could not ask for a more beautiful and fun destination (not that I am biased or anything).
If you would like to experience a #BetterWayToFly with Air New Zealand, head on over to the pop-up. It is at the Unit London Gallery in Soho. It will be open 9am-8pm on Wednesday the 26th April, and the entry is free. You can book your place here, to minimise your wait. Bon voyage!
