Air New Zealand Chief Marketing and Customer Officer, Mike Tod, said, "Since we introduced the Dreamliner, we have seen strong customer demand for our award-winning Business Premier and Premium Economy cabins and the products and service that come with these. Increasing the size of these cabins on our new 787-9 Dreamliners will give more customers than ever the opportunity to experience why Air New Zealand has been named by as the best airline in the world for the past four years."
