New Sky Couch Will Let You Get More Comfy In The Air

I'm not sure if this is cool or creepy. Air New Zealand recently unveiled a design for coach seating that turns three seats into a “sky couch,’’ letting 'couples snuggle, kids jump around or single travelers spread out.' The part about single travelers spreading out is good with me, but couples snuggling and kids jumping around on a flight? That's what I go on vacation to get away from.

The seats have large flip-up cushions that fill the space between the end of the seat and the next row of seats. Arm rests retract for a flat surface. The new design will go into service in December. Travelers will have to buy the three “Sky couch” seats together, even if only two are traveling. Here's a video of what it will look like. Let me know what you think.
