The airline is currently reconfiguring its Boeing 777-200, 777-300 and 787-9 aircraft to fit an Economy Stretch zone at the front of the Economy cabin, with up to 42 of these spacious spots.

Economy Stretch customers will also enjoy New Zealand wine and cuisine, gate-to-gate entertainment and free Wi-Fi on enabled aircraft.

The new product will be available for purchase from early next year and will be rolled out on all longhaul flights operated by the carrier from late 2020.
