Long-haul economy seats aren't recognised for being particularly comfortable. However, Air New Zealand intends to quickly alter that. According to CNN, it is testing the "Skynest" idea, which includes six full-length sleeping pods.

According to the outlet, they will allow passengers to spread out and take a nap on actual beds.
The next Boeing 787 Dreamliners, scheduled to go into service in 2024, will include these sleeping pods. They will be made available on 17-hour flights that are extremely long-haul, according to a story from the UK's Express.

The source added that travellers will be able to reserve a four-hour bunk bed time.

On its official Twitter account, the airline has published images of the "Skynest" sleeping pods.

Five economy seats will be removed by the airline to create room for six "Skynest" sleep pods.

Between the Premium Economy and Economy class cabins, there will be two rows, each with three beds, according to CNN Travel.

According to CNN, these beds will have a full-size pillow, sheets, earplugs, a reading lamp, an USB port, and a ventilation outlet.

An airline spokesperson was reported as saying, "A typical sleep cycle is around 90 minutes, so a four-hour session gives the opportunity for customers to wind down, fall asleep and wake up."
