"Consider putting yourselves back into our shoes, but lifting your standards of minimum acceptableness. Train yourselves to get frustrated easily, like I do, and to observe the point of pain that earned the grimace.

To start, book your own end to end travel, and do so using your own retail website and other services. Drink the tea in flight, eat the cheese with inadequate crackers, and sit at the back of the plane."

yeah, this....

Of all people, Lance should know the economics of industries keeps changing. While I don't like the changes any more than the next person, there are not designed to improve he customer experience, but to improve the bottom line in an industry that returns below the cost of capital over the cycle.

Who would have imagined five years ago tha we could fly from Auckland to Wellington for $29 ? Instead we complain about the lack of Koru access or the quality of the strawberry jam.

Really !!
