Getting home need to take what is available. Takes travel time and is more risky considering cute routes. Cost is a secondary consideration:- not the main consideration.
QR have been very reliable for flights to AU & NZ. Many people only look at main popular airports (e.g. LHR SYD AKL). They do not consider less well known international airports( e.g. MAN BNE CHC)
Thanks, good points made. However we are quite flexible, to the point of waiting into 2022 if needed. Particularly if there is an indication of MIQ getting relaxed. Im not suggesting that will happen, however come June (when wed be realistically looking to book MIQ places based on our plan A), well have a clearer idea than now in regards to if the situation is getting better or worse with respect to travel into NZ.

Ill definitely take a look also at other UK airports rather than London to see what the options are.
