What is Skycouch?

The Skycouch is a row of three Economy seats that together create a flexible space for whatever you want it to be - an area to relax and stretch out in, or for the kids to use as a play area. It’s like having your very own couch on the plane.

You'll enjoy the same great dining and inflight entertainment experience already offered in Economy.  

Book a Skycouch for your journey

You can add Economy Skycouch to an Economy fare when booking long haul flights online. You’ll see ‘Skycouch on board’ beneath the price if the option is available. You’ll find costs and details when you get to the ‘extras’ page.

Choose your configuration based on how many people you’re travelling with. We offer options for one Skycouch, one Skycouch plus an Economy seat or multiple Skycouches.

How do I use a Skycouch?

The seats are the same as an Economy seat, except you have an additional footrest that folds to form a couch. Each person can choose if they want their footrest up or down. These adjust to 60 and 90 degrees.

The arm rest on the window side goes all the way up to create a comfortable lounge space. All the armrests in the middle seats also disappear in the back of the seat. 

When it's time to rest, we'll help you get your Skycouch set up. We even have an extension seat belt for when you want to lie down. 

What are the dimensions of a Skycouch?

With the side wall armrest up the length of the Skycouch is 1.55m (5ft 1”). And when the cushion and leg rest are combined the approximate depth of the Skycouch is 74cm (29”).

Where are the Skycouch seats located? 

The Economy Skycouch seats are located in the forward Economy cabin of all our 777 and 787-9 aircraft. Seat and row numbers vary by aircraft but can be found on our seat maps.

How much does a Skycouch cost?

Like all our fares, the pricing for Skycouch varies depending on the demand of any given flight. For example, for a couple going to North America, a Skycouch can start from $649.
