NZ Itinerary Thread

I thought this would be a useful way of meeting other FTers. One can post upcoming flights here, see if any others will be on the same flights or in the lounge at the same time.

Sun Feb 08 NZ 104 11:30am SYD-AKL, onto ROT
Sat Feb 21 NZ 101 7:00am AKL-SYD, onto YVR

Hello all:

I will be in the country soon.
Feb. 6 (Fri) NZ 3 LAX-AKL (13:35-23:20+1)
Feb. 23 (Mon) NZ 6 AKL-LAX (16:20-07:15)

Other than being in AKL and the region for about a week, I am still going through a list of the cities/areas to visit. So many places to visit, and so little time!

Would love to get together with other FTers for a beer or 3.

I am happy to buy some Steinlager to Kiwis or other FTers.

I still need to finalize where to visit in NZ. I was thinking about Roto, Waitomo, Bay of Islands, and Taupo. Or Milford Sound and Queenstown in Southland...

Any suggestions?

While Steinlager is okay, personally I dont rate it up there with some other local beers. Eg Macs - thankfully NZ stock these in their lounges

All good spots to visit. It really depends on what you're interested in, how long you have, when you're over here, etc. If you can give us some pointers to help out? Also try looking at the Australia South Pacific forum in FT Travel - there are plenty of great suggestions there.

Cheers

AC 761 LAX-YVR 4B

Finally get to sample NZ First.
