Should earn 100% on AS @ 3.7cpm.

Not bad for an awesome destination, if you can survive SFO-SYD in Y which is not ideal. Fare rules say stopovers allowed 1 free additional $150. But they also say 10 day minimum stay ,which isn't being enforced it doesn't seem.

Sample below:

Fabulous find!

As an AS 75k, this credits about 50,00 RDM based on registering for their double miles promo! The 7 day minimum is what's killing it for me, though.

Great deal! I can't believe their Economy is really booking into O (as Expedia suggests) and earns 100%-125% on Oneworld. Amazing if it does.

SFO-CHC/WLG are about $100 more roundtrip with some more availability, I think. Not quite as good of a deal, but if you really want to get to NZ, it's not bad (can also be used as open-jaws with any of CHC/WLG/ZQN if you want to roadtrip between cities).

this is actually a much better deal as those are much more interesting and beautiful parts of NZ. If you are going to NZ and don't leave the area around AKL you are doing yourself a massive disservice

I think most people would consider Queenstown a far more beautiful (and fun!) destination than either Wellington or Christcuurch.

Wondering how you got it for less... playing with dates on Momondo and trying to get that separate Jetstar segment, but no dice.

I'm also registered for the AS promotion, so I'm all-in for making this work

are you looking at momondo? (Just read and saw you are using momondo- good luck!!) I booked two of these today for the absolute end of that AS promo. May 23-30

faregeek . Com so Iím running the risk of booking with one of these weird OTAs. But it ticketed after 2 hours
