LHR-ADL for £1,959
LHR-AKL for £1,715

A bit more expensive but still quite competitive.

Nice post and good alternative to the dried up ARN-CBR.
Thanks GSTP :-)

Great price for those wanting to go to NZ!

A bit disappointed, though, with the remaining of the offers ex-EU to Asia. Largely the same as in previous offers e.g. HEL-BKK around EUR 1200.

As mentioned by @Raffles on HFP, it is likely that the DOH-AKL segment would be operated by a 777 on a 2x2x2 configuration... it would be enough to put me off if travelling alone.

Any way to get around it?

Don't go and let someone else have opportunity to buy the ticket?

But seriously.. It's not a bad seat, yes.. it's 2x2x2 but the seat is extremely roomy. On a flight of such length it's good not to have those enclosed spaces around your feet like on the B787/A380/A350.

on that seating configuration itís got to be middle aisle seat... Flew it in a window seat last year and it was fine

MAN-CPT is down to £1359 ex-MAN also, which isn't bargain of the century but it's not bad on what is normally an expensive route. Availabilty in April onwards.

Props GSTP. Maybe I am missing it, but I do NOT see other bloggers posting this stuff here.

Cashback via TopCashback uk ?

It's only 2.1% but it pushes the price further down. Not sure if QR cashback can be paid out as Avios.
