Boeing 777-200 and 787-9 Dreamliner
Enjoy more legroom with the largest seat pitch in its class and relax with 50% more recline than Economy.
We have customised a beautifully comfortable ink coloured luxury leather seat with generous armrests, a leg rest and foot support. Seats have a 41” pitch, 9” recline and width of 19.3” with a 5” wide armrest.
Premium Economy refit
We are progressively refitting our 777-300 fleet to align our customer experience with the high level of inflight comfort already enjoyed on our 787-9 and 777-200 planes.
The refurbished 777-300 aircraft will feature Air New Zealand’s luxury leather Premium Economy seat which debuted on the Dreamliner in July 2014.
Until this refurbishment is complete in November 2017, some customers will still experience our Spaceseat™ in Premium Economy on our 777-300.
About the Spaceseat
The seats that run through the inner space of the cabin have been designed for couples, so you can relax together, or turn to face each other to share a meal.
The seats on the outer space of the cabin cater more for those who need some uninterrupted work time, or for people who prefer to keep to themselves during the flight.
Our menus are full of fresh, high quality ingredients, delivering deliciously satisfying flavours with a modern Kiwi twist. We also offer a wide selection of premium New Zealand wines to complement each meal. The extensive wine list features some of New Zealand’s most awarded winemakers and the country’s best loved wine varietals, selected by top wine consultants.
You can also pre-order special meals when you book.
The vast selection of activities on our inflight entertainment will keep even the most fidgety of flyers engaged for the whole flight.
Enjoy over 1,700 hours of content - including latest movies, TV box sets, video games, and a dedicated kids section - all on a personal touch screen in widescreen format. If you need more, there are always the USB and iPod connections to plug in to.

We realise it's those little extras that can make a trip and that's why our Premium Economy customers will enjoy premium check-in.
On board you'll also find an amenity kit with key toiletries and other items to ensure a comforting journey. The amenity kit is available only when travelling long haul, Perth and Hawaii.
