A mother of two who traveled from Melbourne to Los Angeles has revealed how a cheap upgrade gave her family just as much extra space as traveling in business class.

Adele Barbaro shared the details of the upgrade on her Facebook page explaining how she, her husband, her son, three-year-old and 21-month-old daughter could experience the Sky Couch from Air New Zealand for just $ 200.

She said the & # 39; unique economy option & # 39; – with which she could turn her entire row into a bed – was as good as upgrading the cabin.

& # 39; Paul and Harvey had a bed and Chloe and I too. It is the second best thing to do business (but much cheaper) and perfect for long-haul flights with young families. And we all slept, & Adele said.

Sky Couch seats are the same as an economy seat, except that they come with an additional footrest that can be folded out to form a sofa and reads information about Air New Zealand & # 39; s Place.

Passengers can purchase the flight add-on from $ 200 each way (based on a flight from Sydney to Los Angeles) when three people have booked the seat row.

Adele said on arrival, although the family was slightly thrown by the time difference, they were much better because they had slept during the 14-hour flight.

& # 39; We are a bit thrown by the time difference, but it is nice to arrive and start our vacation without a lack of sleep!, & # 39; she said.

The unique travel arrangement struck a chord with others on Facebook with Adele & # 39; s post on her page The real mom 24,000 responses and more than 30,000 responses.

& # 39; Skycouch was great during our recent trip to the US. Pillow etc supplied. Plus Air New Zealand has decent vegetarian food, & a person said.

Another added: & # 39; Oh, we've had this before and we love it. It was just us and a baby – a much better option than the crib seats because I could lie down and feed and both me and the baby could sleep (while his father was watching movies! Haha!). & # 39;

Bed linen and pillows are included as part of the service and additional extras are available for guests traveling with babies.

A third, who is a travel agent, said the option she always recommended to her customers traveling long-distance with Air New Zealand.

She added that she had also booked the option for herself when traveling with her baby, and described it as & # 39; so worth it & # 39 ;.

Another said: & # 39; This was the best travel decision we made. My son and I slept 11 hours in a row! We never sleep that long at home. & # 39;

The Sky Couch option works by letting passengers buy the seat next to them for half the price if they travel as a couple.

Those who travel alone can also take advantage of the option.

However, the costs are slightly higher.

The upgrade is currently available on Boeing 777 and 787-9 aircraft and prices depend on demand, availability and destination.
