The flights (LAX-AKL) are trending towards full now and they aren’t preconfirming any upgrades before check in.

They’ve also zeroed out all the cheaper fare buckets (eg. J class for BP) when they...

The domestic lounges are all open (and were at level 2 also) but I doubt we will see the international lounges open anytime soon unless passenger numbers grow — the AKL international terminal was...

I wonder if booking separate tickets would work? (Eg. Fly to Syd then a separate NZ ticket to AKL vs trying to find a fare all the way to AKL)

This wouldn’t be cheap but at least you could travel...

I’ve noticed the service being quite underwhelming this past year too (on mostly long haul routes from SF and LAX) — I wonder why the big drop of late after being fairly consistent for so many years?

I also find it sad when I look back to how the domestic catering peaked around 2016 before each year they chipped away at it :(

You’re probably better off completely switching to Oneworld and then just maintaining a Koru membership for domestic flying.

As a bonus you get to switch out those crowded NZ international lounges...
