Haven't tried getting to the booking page, but be aware that for UA MP accrual, X, I, L, G, S, K, and P fare classes get NO MP credit.

Great fares in P-E and B-P for similar time periods which I believe are eligible for FF miles on NZ & partners. Damn! If only I had some time off.

Is it a good period to visit NZ? Isn't it winter over there? Not a MR, but a great deal!

Also: I've never user ANZ's site before, so I have to ask: is it possible to choose economy (not P-E) but ask for a fare that earn miles? I can't find something like that.

I was in NZ in April/May a couple of years back. It's definitely chilly, but not winter (ie no snow). Depends on the types of activities that you are looking to do, but certainly not a bad time to visit.

Crisp is the best term.

Really, NZ is a wonderful place, I would NEVER turn down a cheap ticket to the country.

Wow - that's an awesome deal esp. for anyone who wants to go to NZ! I'd taken it if I did not have my Peru trip planned for Memorial week! Arghhh...

As cheap as $2800 in Premium Economy and $4000 in Business. Not bad for this premium and highly rated airline!
