From the champagne-filled beginning in Los Angeles to the on-time arrival in London, flying Air New Zealand Business Premier 777-300 was pure pleasure.

Air New Zealand Business Premier, advertised as First Class service at Business Class prices is one of the top Business Class flights I have experienced. As a multi-year winner of the world’s best airline award, Air New Zealand managed to exceed my already high expectations.

Air New Zealand Crew

New Zealanders, known as Kiwis, are famous for their friendly demeanour. The Air Newland Business Premier flight crew were no exception. With their warm hospitality and the attention to detail, they may be the best flight crew in the sky.

The 22″ wide leather seat converts to a fully lie flat 6’7.5″ bed – one of the longest in the sky. When you are ready to sleep, a plush mattress, duvet, and full-size pillow transform the spacious seat into a sleep-inducing bed.

Air New Zealand’s Surfing Safari, in-flight safety video, was the first sign that the entertainment on the flight from Los Angeles to London was going to be world-class.

Premium New Zealand wine, coupled with a menu designed by internationally acclaimed consultant chef, Peter Gordon, ensures that passengers flying Air New Zealand Business Premier enjoy exceptional food and drink on the 9-hour flight from Los Angeles to London.
