If you've ever flown on a plane with a baby, you know that it can be...a challenge, to say the least.
The good news is that there is a better way — if you fly (or ever want to fly) Air New Zealand, you can book special seats that will make sitting, eating, playing, and sleeping with your baby that much easier.
The "Skycouches," as Air New Zealand calls them, are basically a dream come true. They're located in the economy section, and are the same as any standard airplane seat, except they have a footrest that pops up, which turns the row into an extra-wide area to stretch out.
Basically, the new features, which are still pending approval, will let your infant stay lying down while a plane is in the air (!!!), even when the fasten seatbelt sign is on.
That means no more bouncing your infant up and down until they maybe fall asleep (and you definitely don't), a slightly more private space for nursing, and extra room without having to upgrade to first class.
