I think EK would win Y over NZ's 789 and NZ PE over EK (has none) and EK J and NZ I'm not sure given EK's 777 layout, and EK F over NZ (NZ has none). And then there's the old price factor! If it lowers prices I'm all for it. I have to agree Bali is a cheaper destination than some of the more loca...
Feb 20, 2018, 11.55 AM / Emirates plans new Auckland-Bali-Dubai flights
I bought a couple of gift vouchers, saw this then went back to go screen shot T&C but looks like it’s been updated. Says need to book and redeem within promo period. Gah!! I didn’t look through T&C initially.
Feb 05, 2018, 12.35 PM / Qantas Double Status Credits promo is a fast-track to Gold, Platinum
Completely forgot about it at LAX NZ/*A lounge! Cocktail and wine ordered at the bar. (Was confused at hotel lounge so tipped to avoid embarrassment) Airports are an environment where I forget these things due to other airport experiences.
Jan 10, 2018, 01.05 AM / Should you tip the staff in US airport lounges?
QF's A330 and VA's A330 J products are fairly neck and neck for me. Like them both.
Dec 05, 2017, 11.28 AM / Virgin Australia hits pause on new Boeing 737 business class
I LOVE the idea of flexibility and choices! The reality is, I tend to stick with airline lounges - but I will head in when it's open because I'm nosey.

You can check online with Aelia and JR duty free for NZ pick up as they usually offer 20% off online purchases then compare prices to your local stores.

May 03, 2017, 04.35 AM / Best time to book flights on EY
No. They don't differentiate well between Gold and Platinum as it is so I can't imagine a P1 being anything to aim for. I don't value P1 from QF either. Best to add another FFP into the mix that you DO value.
Feb 01, 2017, 10.45 AM / Does Virgin Australia need its own Platinum One tier?
It depends on how much you value or would use the elite APD upgrades. You receive an extra short haul RU and a xmas gift which this yr was another short haul RU. You can nominate an elite partner, also you can soft land to gold if need be. Your gifting options are better also. You're first in lin...
