NZ: EWR to AKL Rt $355

Air New Zealand flights on ITA price at $335-355 for round trip from Newark to Auckland (stop in LAX or IAH). I assuming mistake fare but I have a e-ticket and a confirm code. Seems only thought 3rd parties (Expedia , priceline etc).
Remember...don't book anything non-refundable yet.

Yeah great find - all over the blogs as well - won't last long - already repricing on NZ and UA sites. Momondo search still producing results.

I booked through OTA in US, they have to provide 24hour policy, no?

I meant non-refundable as in hotels/tours etc....the air fare is fine. However Virgin Australia last year took like 7 days to debate honoring their $150 mistake so we shall see. I picked seats too....but have also been burned before (well I mean hopes up and down)

[FARE GONE] NZ: US Destinations to AKL - $350ish ai

Not sure why there's not a thread on this yet. Seems to work pretty much wide open from most US destinations. I booked on priceline.

I got dates feb 17-24 from WAS-AKL.

Already ticketed with NZ ticket stock and confirmation numbers.

Shall see if it's too cheap for them to honor...

Picked up by TFD. Probably won't last long. Partly on UA metal.

Seen on Expedia too. AKL/CHC/WLG at first glance.
PERMITTED 26MAR18 THROUGH 21JUN18 ON THE OUTBOUND TRANSPACIFIC SECTOR

NZ L fare earns 50% distance on UA. Can route via RAR!

I got SEA-AKL through LAX 10-17 FEB on Expedia (on NZ/AS metal) for ~$350 r/t. Ticketed.

I put in for SEA-CHC via SFO, AKL for 21 APR - 6 MAY on TravelMerry via Momodo for ~$360 which is sitting in confirmation, likely won't issue.

Everything else is repricing now, so I think this is dead.

Booked one on expedia for $330 SAN-SFO-AKL. Hope it gets honored but NZ doesn't have a great track record.
