From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 29 June 2022

The borders are open, the airports are buzzing and long-haul travel is about to get a whole lot cozier.

Air New Zealand is unveiling new cabins, seats and even beds - promising they'll let travellers get the best sleep in the sky.

The new product will be introduced on the new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners which are due to arrive in 2024.

Chief customer and sales officer Leanne Geraghty told Corin Dann new cabins have taken the airline 170,000 hours of research and design over the past five years.
