Seat Map Boeing 787-9 Air New Zealand

This airplane may accommodate 302 passengers in three classes: 18 in the business class, 21 in premium economy and 263 in the economy class.


Business class seats are located in the first 6 rows per 3 in each of seats and have 180 degrees recline. All these seats are standard. Only the seats of the 1st row have such a disadvantage as proximity of the galley and lavatory. Also these seats offer bassinet locations for passengers with babies.

Premium economy class consists of 3 rows of seats that have 2-3-2 configuration. For passengers travelling with babies the seats of the 23rd row have bassinet locations.

263 seats of the economy class are divided into two sections. First section consists of 16 rows of seats: 15 of them have 3-3-3 configuration and 1 row with 2 seats.

The main disadvantages of the seats 34JK and 35DEF are: location of the galleys and lavatory in front, reduced width of the seats and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing. Passengers travelling with infants are often seated here.

Passengers of the seats 35ABC will take advantage of extra legroom. However, proximity of the lavatory and galleys, reduced width and lack of floor storage will cause discomfort to passengers of these seats. Also these seats offer bassinets.

As there is no seat in front the seat 35H gas extra space for passengers’ legs but at the same time this seat is often bumped by other passengers and crew members passing by.

ABC seats of the rows 36-43 as well as the seats HJK of the rows 36-41 when purchased together may be converted into Economy Skycouch by raising extendable foot rest and creating couch-like seat that gives additional personal room and comfort during long-haul flights.

Location of the lavatories behind and limited recline make the seats of the 49th row bad seats.

The second section of economy class seats has 16 rows.

Thanks to the exit row located in front the sears 50ABC and 50HJK provide passengers with extra legroom. Among disadvantages: the noise from the galley and lavatories located in front, reduced width because the tray tables and TV are built-in the armrests making them immovable and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

Close location of the galley, reduced width of the seats and no floor storage during take-off and landing are the main disadvantages of the seats 52DEF.

Passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 63ABC, 63HJK, 64DEF and 65DEF while waiting to use lavatories and thus causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.
