What is the Air New Zealand skycouch?

It's like getting a whole row to yourself, only better.

Air New Zealand's skycouch is an entire economy row to yourself with an additional footrest that folds up to create a flat bed where you can stretch out and rest more comfortably than if sitting upright. The arm rest next to the window in these seats is also adjustable for added comfort.

When fully reclined, the skycouch is 1.55 metres long.
