A trip on the 787 Boeing Dreamliner is well worth trying and it’s easily obtainable using Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars. Read on to find out all the things we love the most about Air New Zealand Dreamliner business class.
1# Enjoy fast track check in and lounge access before your flight
Air New Zealand international business class Dreamliner passengers enjoy fast track checkin, before being warmly welcomed at a departure lounge.
Travellers departing Auckland enjoy Air New Zealand’s flagship lounge which opened in 2015. It features an ultra-modern design and a covered outdoor terrace. A generous range of refreshments are offered to help travellers relax before their flight.Travellers departing from Australia have access to some great lounges, too. The stylish Sydney Air New Zealand Lounge features a long bar and is a great space to perch in for an hour or two before your flight.
2# Relax in a luxurious lie flat seat
The Air New Zealand Dreamliner business class cabin features a 1-1-1 seat configuration. Seats offer a width of 22 inches and are upholstered in soft leather. The seats and feature privacy barriers on each side and flip to create a bed with a foam mattress.

3# Enjoy an excellent business class champagne
Air New Zealand currently alternates between Billecart-Salmon NV and Laurent Perrier NV champagne in their Dreamliner business cabin. Both wines are some of the nicer non vintage champagnes you can find. We’ve found the Air New Zealand Dreamliner crew to be very proactive with refills – so enjoy, but in moderation!

4# The Air New Zealand wine list is exceptional
Along with its champagne, Air New Zealand takes its Dreamliner Business Class still wine selection incredibly seriously. You’ll usually find two sparkling wines, three whites and three reds on offer, most of which will be from premium New Zealand wineries. And if you’re not sure what to choose, simply consult your friendly Air New Zealand ‘wine specialist’. This is a crew member who has completed an intensive training course in food and wine matching.
5#… And the Air New Zealand Dreamliner business class food is even better
We’re not usually inspired by airline dining, but Air New Zealand has changed all of that. You can expect to dine on local New Zealand product, and the crew take pride in serving food that is well above the standard we often see in business class.

6# Air New Zealand Dreamliner premium economy is a cut about the rest.
Ok, so this reason doesn’t exactly cover business class. However, we’ve chosen to include it anyway, as we believe that Air New Zealand operates an incredible premium economy product on their Dreamliner. Nicknamed ‘business-lite’, the premium economy cabin features leather upholstered seats arranged in a 2-3-2 configuration. Each seat offers a width of 19.3 inches and seatpitch of 41 inches. Food and beverage offerings are some of the best you’ll find in a premium economy cabin.
All in all, Air New Zealand really does offer one of the best business class products in the skies.
