Angry Changes in rewards for Air NZ revenue flights?

I just discovered Air NZ have drastically reduced their Air points dollars and status points rewards. Business flight to Chicago from Auckland, 60 status points when in the past it was over 300. What a way to reward loyalty!! I never received any communication so they have slipped this in under the radar!

While I originally closed this thread, believing that it was a simple mistake on the OP's part, one member advised that there might be different flight credits awarded if the NZ flight were booked as a code-share.

To allow this or other allied situations to be discussed which could account for a difference in flight credits awarded, depending on method of booking, I'm reopening the thread. Ocn Vw 1K, Senior Moderator.

@Janak, welcome to Flyertalk and your first post

Can you provide anymore details?

Airpoints earned can be significantly less in the case of partner airlines and, in some cases, code-share flights. For example, what were the flight numbers? What does your airports statement say about the fare type? What does the e-ticket say in terns of fare class What are the first three digits of the 13 digit ticket read? (086 is Air NZ).
