You're also missing another important point - that for those connecting domestically in the US, NZ offers exceptional routing opportunities with flights landing at a west coast (LAX), east coast...

There is no trans-tasman flight run by NZ offering either of your combinations. Flights trans-tasman are either widebody 3-class (Y/A/C - 777, 787) or they are 1-class (Y only - 737, A320). BNE is...

I don't think this is correct. I can't get Google Flights to price in any currency other than the local one - and if I'm not mistaken attempting to book an NZ flight from AU to NZ will always go to...

I don't think IAH is a corner case tbh. A lot of the Australian economy is the oil and gas exploration sector, and Southern Texas really is the O&G capital. I think you'll find a significant...

I would actually challenge that they are overpriced. From AKL, yes, maybe. But that's because to those destinations there's really no competition. Can you really compare a non-stop to LAX on NZ vs a...

Just want to correct one error there - provided you don't mind flying from MEL or SYD, you can take UA direct to IAH. However, that does mean 16 hours on a UA 789. If I were willing to stump up the...

This is the last I'll say on this topic because it's dangerously close to off topic and you've demonstrated a willingness to discard context to support a strawman narrative.

There is no practical reason for Air NZ to "design mainly for people living in NZ". There is literally an Airpoints program specifically for Australia with different earn rates, but you say despite...

United Club and Maple Leaf memberships allow access to all *A lounges, same as if you held *G - including Air NZ Koru lounges. With that in mind, I'd say the relative benefits of UA Club are higher...

Just got it and filled it in. My feedback was basically the same as those here - the program doesn't even resemble a frequent flyer program so much as a frequent credit card spender program. QF...

It's China. I doubt it. They're real sticklers for their processes, especially where their "national security" is involved.

Except that United's own web page says what matters is the marketing carrier, not operating carrier. Hence why real-world experience would be useful here - I don't think it's common for NZ to be...

You can apply for a Visa, but they will ask if you've ever been refused a Visa, to which lying is a federal offence and will result in immediate Visa denial and being barred entry.

And at a pretty prodigious rate too. BNE to NTL nets 15 SP in Discount Economy and 40 in Business! That's more than AKL to WLG on mainline NZ!

Well to be fair to NZ on that first one, Star Alliance has not done away with First lounge, it's just that NZ does not have a First class. They are hardly the only airline that does this either....

Yeah, AKL-MEL quite often includes a metric ton of fare paying pax transiting AKL because NZ competes heavily with UA, QF, AA and DL on transpac travel pricing. It's not unusual during low peak to...
