Could be the JQ ZQN-AKL sector instead of ZQN-SYD
Note ZQN can be a difficult airport in winter and JQ do not have a good record for reliability/time keeping.

This is actually repricing for me now on Google flights, from $637 to around $900. It seems to me the fare may have been pulled but still trying to verify.

Yeah, I'm pretty confident this is gone. Even the fringe SFO-WLG/CHC are repricing around $300 higher now. I saw it alive all day but didn't pull the trigger since the 7-day min was a killer...

7 day minimum but since you arrive +2 days later itís only 5 overnights. I plan on spending a couple days in Queenstown and a couple days in Christchurch visiting friends

Call and cancel if it is less than 24 hours since you booked it and next time book yourselves on one reservation so they ticket together.

I did a similar 2-week solo trip with a week on the north island and week on the south island. So many good memories.
