Air New Zealand has shown off its first 787-9 to media a day ahead of the aircraft’s delivery flight to Auckland. These images show some of the feaures of the 301-seat airliner, including the airline’s famous ‘cuddle class’ Skycouch, new IFE system and off-the-rack premium economy seats (rather than the Spaceseat premium economy seat design as found in its 777-300ERs). A full report on the aircraft’s entry into service with Air New Zealand will feature in the August issue of Australian Aviation.
