What is the Air New Zealand Skycouch?

It’s like getting a whole row to yourself, only better.

Air New Zealand’s Skycouch is an entire economy row to yourself with an additional footrest that folds up to create a flat bed where you can stretch out and rest more comfortably than if sitting upright. The arm rest next to the window in these seats is also adjustable for added comfort.

When fully reclined, the Skycouch is 1.55 metres long.

Does Air New Zealand offer online check-in?

Yes. You can check in online at Air New Zealand’s website and print off your boarding pass. You can also use the Air NZ mobile app for an electronic boarding pass, however this may not be accepted on all flights due to transit requirements (i.e. destinations requiring a visa or proof of onward ticket). It’s recommended to check directly with Air New Zealand whether your electronic boarding pass will be accepted.

What’s Air New Zealand’s baggage allowance?

  • Economy: One carry-on bag up to 7kg is included in your fare. Checked bags aren’t included in the basic economy fare, but you can upgrade to Seat+Bag (or The Works to also include food and entertainment) to include this in your ticket.
  • Premier Economy: Two carry-on bags up to 7kg each and two checked bags up to 23kg each are included in your fare.
  • Business Premier: Two carry-on bags up to 7kg each and three checked bags up to 23kg each are included in your fare.

Does Air New Zealand have in-flight entertainment?

Air New Zealand offers screens on every seat (or tucked into the armrest) on all international flights, with a few exceptions including select flights between New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands, Honolulu and Bali.

Domestic flights in New Zealand are quite short, and don’t offer anything beyond a monthly in-flight magazine, so we’d recommend looking into options like downloading shows and movies to a personal device.

Does Air New Zealand offer in-flight Wi-Fi?

Yes, and it’s completely free until 28 February 2018. It’s available on 777-300s, 777-200s, A321neos and A320neos. The rest of the fleet will have Wi-Fi installed with the aim to have all planes online by 2019. After the free period is up, an in-flight Wi-Fi pass will cost between $30-$40.

Is there an Air New Zealand frequent flyer program?

Yes, Air New Zealand’s rewards program is called Air New Zealand Airpoints. In a nutshell, you’ll earn Airpoints Dollars on eligible fares and on flights with select partner airlines. You can use the points toward flights, upgrades, rental cars and more.

Is Air New Zealand part of Star Alliance?

Is Air New Zealand affiliated with Qantas?
