It was my main gripe on the flight - but it was being done to service was based around crew rest breaks.
No they are not anymore. On my flight a lot of business class woke up with 4 hours to go anyway, i went into premium economy service area and lots of premium economy passengers were also up. The crew were being bothered constantly for food drinks etc when they were trying to set up for breakfast alone, obviously short on colleagues as they were resting. After witnessing this i can see why they were serving breakfast earlier. The poor crew must be shattered and must need a break before driving home, i would rather be woken earlier for breakfast - your gripe is someone else’s fatigue and safety...

AKL to IAH (Houston) NZ28
Y to PE
Bid $530 NZD - no uplift
Accepted 5 days out

I somehow also managed to get the only spare PE seat next to me, so was a very comfy flight (other than all the turbulence!)

This is probably a stupid question - but how do I know if my bid is NZ dollars or US dollars
Looking to bid PE-J on NZ1 LAX-AKL. The minimum bid showing is $365
If that's $365US -- then I'm bidding $550NZ which seems very high for a minimum bid.

Why do you think it's high for a minimum bid? It's not.

Elite APD upgrade price is NZ$480 until 9th Feb and NZ$695 for after 10th Feb so assuming your flight is for after the 10th Feb it's way under the Elite APD upgrade price.

Hello everyone, I have a question more towards OneUp refunds.

My OneUp bid of $200 on BNE-AKL was successful 3 days out, then day of departure, there was an aircraft swap 777 > 787 and I was downgraded back to economy. I assumed a refund would happen automatically but after waiting a week I called in. The agent did not see anything noted on my booking other than the trip was completed They sent a refund request to the appropriate department and I figured that was settled. Fast forward 3 weeks to today, still no refund so I called in again to get an update. The new agent I spoke with did not see anything noted about a refund (nor the request) and they gave me an email address to contact "[email protected]".

This seems a bit of a hassle, and i'm wondering if my experience is just a one off or is this common with Air NZ?
