Whether you’re a couple who’d like a bit of extra room, a parent with a young child or a parent with two restless kids, you’ll find our innovative Economy Skycouch™ is the ideal solution.

Economy 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.

What makes the Skycouch different to other Economy seats is the way the trio of seats transform. With a touch of a button, a footrest will come out from under each of the three seats which you can pull up to create a flat, flexible space for you to use however you like. By booking this three-wide seat space, you really can get the most from your long-haul flying experience. The seats themselves are our Economy seats with armrests that disappear into the back of the seat. There’s also a trinket tray, a winged headrest and a sleep pillow on every seat.

The Economy Skycouch™ is available on our 777-300 long-haul services, and will be progressively introduced on our new 787-9 Dreamliner and 777-200 refurbished aircraft.
