I've seen them on and off for quite a while, seems to be a random check.

My wife is "tall" like you, and I'm not much more, and we are both small otherwise. Being short has its own issues, and not all seats are comfortable for shorter people.
In the last couple of years...

Agree entirely with sbiddle, in reality you need to spend at least $15,000, and if you live in provincial NZ the cost is higher.

Unless you live in provincial NZ. You have to be lucky to get a $49 flight. If you were lucky enough to get one at $49 it is 116 sectors at 4 SP plus the 30 bonus which gives the 810 at $5684 plus...

I think these changes are very encouraging, finally rewarding long term loyalty. I'm at least at the 15 year level, but maybe the 20 of Gold and Elite. This should keep me Elite for a long time...

I agree with sbiddle on this, I cannot see any way they will let HVC's have them for free at least until 48 hours out. It is all about money. Effectively though, it becomes another decrease in...

I've done it several times, grabbed a coffee and a couple of small sandwiches for lunch there then headed over to international. But I've never done it with a guest and the regional lounge is very...

And clearly some of the Walmart customers that you see pictured on the internet will fit in really well in the NZ lounges.

I'm a non Auckland customer too, so I fly to Auckland too, except it is on the very uncomfortable ATR, I would much prefer if that was a jet.

The way I think about it is that if you paid for a...

True, but to change from an aircraft with BP and PE to one without is the problem here. Nobody should be expected to go from BP or PE to economy without being given choices or very generous...

I agree, a "book the cook" type service would help with this. I think that with the very high price of NZ J they should offer a full meal which is good quality. Another alternative would be decent...

Funny that, I've noticed the same coincidence. I routinely ask, but there seldom seem to be any fine wines loaded these days.

Last week I booked a NZ-OS trip to Vienna in J for early next year ticketed by NZ giving about 650 SPs. The price was OK. It goes via Shanghai which has an odd procedure for transit but much better...

I agree. I fly in them regularly and hate them. The seats are designed to be as uncomfortable as possible. They are thin, shaped wrong and quite flimsy, so that a big person in front of you makes...

They did late last year, as well as dinners or accommodation in various places, none of which were any use to us, being in "main centres" or overseas cities where we don't travel to. We don't use our...

I am in that position every year and frequently get the 3000 gift, which is generally not worth having- last year I received a case of mostly Koru lounge reds.
The SPs beyond the banked year don't...

My solution is quite simple. If I am booking domestic I book and pay for the time and date I want, always flexible, and that way if I need to change because of a change in plans I can do it. I can't...

Got the email (Elite). Last night I got my first ever overseas "spam" call on my cellphone. I think it is very likely to be related, and although it might be a coincidence I am generally very careful...

This has happened to me several times, and it really annoys me. You pay for a Trans-Tasman business class fare, and Air NZ assumes you will be happy in economy. A few times they have not informed me...

You must be dreaming if you think they only cost you money for 18 years 😁. They just get older and keep sucking up money.

It looks a bit complex, but as I read it you still get lounge access, seat select etc for your status-hold year. You don't get new RU's but it looks like you get to keep and use existing ones.

We've done it quite a few times and we fit no problems on a 777, too tight on a 787. It's a fun way to make a long haul flight different. We are quite small, probably about the size you are talking...
