Space to stretch out
How do I use a Skycouch?
The seats are the same as an Economy seat, except you have an additional footrest that folds to form a couch. Each person can choose if they want their footrest up or down. These adjust to 60 and 90 degrees.
The arm rest on the window side goes all the way up to create a comfortable lounge space. All the armrests in the middle seats also disappear in the back of the seat.
When it's time to rest, we'll help you get your Skycouch set up. We even have an extension seat belt for when you want to lie down.
What are the dimensions of a Skycouch?
With the side wall armrest up the length of the Skycouch is 1.55m (5ft 1”). And when the cushion and leg rest are combined the approximate depth of the Skycouch is 74cm (29”).
Where are the Skycouch seats located?
The Economy Skycouch seats are located in the forward Economy cabin of all our 777 and 787-9 aircraft. Seat and row numbers vary by aircraft but can be found on our seat maps.

Please take note that for safety reasons, children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult 15 years or older when seated on a Skycouch.
When travelling with infants on Economy Skycouch the infant may lie down when the seatbelt sign is not illuminated. However once the seatbelt sign is illuminated the infant must be returned to the upright position and secured in the infant seatbelt.
