OK, the numbers are in; including 28 flights taken for AP$39!

I'm not getting excited NZ, but thanks for showing how bad your earn is

Rather like the perverse FB 'friendversary'. I think I was caned for "taking only 7 flights, earning APD85, but of which only 22% were with us".

I must stop crediting to other programs eh...?

61 flights, 889 APD.
The other 60 flights to other programmes were massively more rewarding........

22 flights for APD1762 for me, but only 33% on NZ metal. NZ should (but wont) ask itself why I didnt use it for two long haul J bookings to the UK and Europe. Hint: hard product and cost vs competitors.

53 fights with a earn of 101 APD (1.9 APD per flight)

The regional earn rates absolutely suck. 1 APD for a $220 flight is a broken program! :/ I am finding my loyalty drifting where there are options.

6 flights, and they don't even bother to tell me how many APD earned. Hint none due to how they were paid.
Yep I have pretty much dumped NZ.

25 flights and 100 APD from Air New Zealand flights. Apparently I'm celebrating my 25th anniversary as a member (which suits my username!).
