Using APD to book one-way flight YUL-AKL

I have (almost) enough APD to book a one way flight YUL-AKL (for a giftee) - anyone know whether it's possible to do this online / at all? When booking an online fare from Canada it redirects me to airnewzealand.ca

On the redeeming APD for any seat for sale front, you can only use your APD to book fares online on the .co.nz site and it can't involve any partner airlines (with a few exceptions). You can call them to book a fare originating from another country and they will convert your APD to local currency plus a manual booking fee and again this can't involve any partner flights so YUL is out of the question.

Alternatively you can search for Star Alliance awards online but seats are extremely limited.

I haven't used this to buy reward flights for a giftee but give it a try and let us know

This actually worked well. Cheapish flights on AC/United YUL-AKL too...1200APD + $120 tax
