The new Business Class seats offer two new seating positions - the Lazy Z, a cradling position that ensures your weight is centered and balanced when you're sitting down, and the Sundeck, a lounging position that extends the base and foot of your seat so you can stretch and rest your legs on the ottoman.

Handcrafted from Scottish leather and diamond stitched, the 28-inch seat transforms into a 78-inch bed when you're ready to turn in. Fully-flat with a cushioned headboard for greater sleeping comfort, complete with linen, duvet and pillows.  A side console, specially designed to sit above the armrest, lets you stow and conveniently reach for your laptop, in both seat and bed mode. Concealed within your seat are the ports - eXport, HDMI and USB - and the power supply you need to charge your electronic devices.

Star Alliance Partners Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand offer "Joint Venture" airfares from Auckland.  Rather than flying with Singapore Airlines for the entire journey, these airfares allow us to book clients on an Air New Zealand operated flight between Auckland and Singapore (so clients experience Air New Zealand's Business Premier) before connecting with Singapore Airlines network from Singapore through to the UK / Europe.  

This Joint Venture service allows Singapore Airlines to effectively operate a third daily service from Auckland to connect to its UK / Europe network.
