Yup, they even refused to interline a split ticket AKL-HKG HKG-LHR which was all on the exact same NZ metal. That was fun! :eek:

I find the 763 Business seats far more comfortable for relaxing in when not sleeping. The Business Premier seats, while fantastic as beds, feel quite 'boxey' and don't have the range of adjustment...
