Female passengers in the US no longer find Hugh Hefner that cool, going for Johnny Depp (38%) and George Clooney (36%) instead; while US passengers would rather cuddle with Orlando Bloom (31%), Prince Harry (18%), Prince William (14%) and Robert Pattinson (11%).
The shocking results come from male passengers in the US, who favor Sarah Palin (24%) as a cuddling partner, before Kim Kardashian, Mila Kunis and Beyoncé. But the top favorite remains Jennifer Aniston (47%), followed by Megan Fox (37%) – maybe they should consider a political career? In the UK, male passengers would cuddle Catherine Zeta-Jones (40%) and Emma Watson (30%).
Skycouch is already famous for its tongue-in-cheek approach to marketing. If you don’t remember their #cuddleclass sheep twins Mason and Jason, here’s a brief reminder:
It is not the first time Skycouch uses celebs in advertising: aside David Hasselhoff, Kristina and Karissa Shannon have already graced (or scared, still a matter of debate) Mason and Jason with their presence. But regardless the approach to marketing and advertising, the point of the matter is: Skycouch delivers.
Skycouch is indeed the first in its class, and a novel idea, that brings value to passengers flying long distance. Although couples who want to use it still have to pay for a third seat, this is still a more affordable proposition than flying first class. But for families flying with a child, the option is a life saver. The “couch” can be anything from a resting place to a playground.
Skycouch is still at the beginning, being available only for 777-300 planes, flying between Auckland, Los Angeles and London. Upgrades are available for exisiting customers on the official Air New Zealand Skycouch site.
