What airlines frequent flyer programme are you trying to redeem points for AKL-PPT?

If you with NZ Airpoints you should be able to reedem your APD on seat on AKL-PPT operated by NZ

Star award seats do open up from time to time but very rare.

I wanted to go last (Southern) winter and watched for Star alliance award space on the AKL-PPT for a long time and nothing opened up in my one month window

Ended up buying a cash ticket, as I'd suggest you also do if you really want to go

Not sure what you mean by NZ awards. I was referring to X, I classes that NZ release to partner FFP's. It would be helpful to know if you were asking about Airpoints or a partner programme.

Unfortunately Airpoints is the mother of dynamic pricing. You earn dollars instead of miles to redeem on retail fares on a 1:1 basis. Award inventory on NZ is off limits to NZ's own members unless you book another Star flight in the same itinerary. NZ management are loving it.

[QUOTE=mobilemario;31198523]what about NZ awards and how much they cost one way?[/QUOTE}

With Airpoints *every* seat on the flight is an award ticket as Airpoints earn is in Airpoints Dollars and 1APD = 1NZD so every seat on the plane can be purchased as an award ticket with APD.

Air NZ aren't known for being particularly generous when it comes to releasing *A award seats.

Do you just want to get to PPT from somewhere or only AKL PPT?
Threads on people wanting awards to PPT are non unusual Most people do not get them.
Like others you may need to pay cash. RAR PPT is not far

American Airlines and Qantas offer redemptions on Air Tahiti Nui who fly the 787 as well from AKL - PPT. There are dates available.

My plan was going to pot and from here using avios to get to scl,

I found phantom availability on Aegean website but when I put exactly the same date on SQ I can book even 4 ticket AKL-PPT for example 6 Aptil 2020...but if someone want way back its much harder to get PPT-AKL

It's bad what it impossible to use airpoints for flight I connection on air Tahiti I would love to go to Borabora ...using points
