Thomas Cook Airlines is rolling out lie-flat beds in economy class, enabling economy passengers flying long haul to bed down in comfort.

The new 'Sleeper Seat' transforms a row of three seats into a bed, which consists of a mattress, fitted sheet, head rest, pillow, blanket and amenity kit.

The Sleeper Seat is only available on Thomas Cook's long-haul network, which flies to destinations including Orlando, New York and Cancun in Mexico.

Air New Zealand was the first airline to roll out the lie-flat bed in economy concept, with its Skycouch on long-haul flights.

When boarding, passengers will be be seated in a row of three seats. Once in the air, they can ask cabin crew to make up their bed before hitting the hay.

Henry Sunley, commercial director at Thomas Cook Airlines said: “We always look for ways to innovate for our customers and Sleeper Seat is a UK first that we are really proud of.

"It is a fantastic way to transform your flying experience and enjoy some extra comfort when flying in economy.”

Prices start from £200 one-way and booking is now available online for selected long-haul flights from 13 May. Only adults and children over 12 can book one.

In February, Thomas Cook said it was putting its airline up for sale following increased first-quarter losses.
