A clickbait influencer using the word SECRET all in capitals is a warning sign that you'll simply waste brain cells watching it.

Would have loved Noel Philips' take on the NZ Business Premier seats.

Im not sure it could be worse on this occasion - Noels ZK-OKU video was so utterly annoying (to me) I turned it off before take off :-)

I'm not a big fan of YouTube travel vloggers, but I do sometimes enjoy watching Noel's "challenge" videos (the one where he goes across USA by Greyhound bus, or around the world on low cost carriers, for example).

His style isn't so abrasive as some of the bigger, more polished names. That being said I would personally be miffed if I booked a flight and then some guy sat in the immediate vicinity was yapping into his microphone all flight long. I don't trust his food reviews either as he seems to have far too much of a love for fast food burgers (and that is coming from somebody who isn't opposed to a greasy takeaway every now and again).

I typically enjoy how Paul Lucas reviews, as there is typically not much 'clickbait' and also he doesn't normally record himself talking on the plane/train but instead narrates audio over the top of captured video in the editing process.

LOL

To be fair it may not be well known that Air NZ has old Cathay Pacific aircraft with the old First class.... And if you're a geek looking for those extra comforts then his info would be insightful.

I'm fairness it is only 1x CX plane with first class. The one due next month and the one later in the year don't feature the first cabin.
