Qf: Wlg - jfk $2180- j, o/w

Long time lurker, first time poster here. Had a look through Premium Fare Deals and didn't see this in recent years.

Qantas Wellington NZ to JFK for $2180 USD O/W.

Dates are scattered, easier to find the last leg on AS West to East coast however, that's the fun bit flying a 787 in international configured J from LA-NY which is possible. I do see the odd R/T for the $4400 but seems pretty rare if you want all QF.

Just did this exact routing through AS miles redemption. QF lounge in WLG is surprisingly good. Had one of the old non refurbished A380 which was disappointing but still enjoyable.

AA Equations below

EQD: $2835
EQM: 22,680
RDM:14175 (before any elite bonus)

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm seeing AKL <-> SFO return for ~$3200 (USD). Works one way from AKL to SFO for $1600 (USD). Pretty good deal for J.
Edit: Thanks for sharing!!!
