While this is an inconvenience I can't say it will be the end of Air NZ for me. The flights times and the product are perfect for my personal and business travel. I feel that it is an example of how hard it is to trust that Velocity is going to be around and with whom they will be partners when s...
Jul 11, 2017, 09.41 AM / Virgin Australia cuts points, status credits earning on AirNZ
Having lived in São Paulo, while I wouldn't care about arriving late, I could see how most people wouldn't like the idea. That being said most business travellers will just go and deal with it. Most leisure travellers will travel to Rio first which in past experience is better set up for tourists...

Great to see. I really like ANZ's service. That being said, I'm not sure I'd want to be in Y 10 abreast. I'm glad we won't be doing that.

No one should care. I find the whole Australian Icon premise rather strange. If they feel they need forgein capital, let them access it.
Dec 12, 2013, 03.12 PM / Virgin Australia: Air New Zealand, Etihad & Singapore Airlines take bigger stake
If it was any other company give the amount of turmoil that it has been through, management would be falling on their sword. A forecast loss such as that has made their position untenable.
Dec 05, 2013, 08.36 PM / Qantas gets a second slap down to 'junk' status
I find the new generation J quite narrow and short for my feet as well. I generally think it is really good, however it is a downside for me. One thing I try to do is not have to go to Europe as much as I can, as that second flight from SIN to the EU is horrible and it doesn't matter what class I...
Jul 27, 2017, 10.58 AM / Is Singapore Airlines business class really uncomfortable, or is it just me?
I find with VA, NZ, SQ and UA the priority tags mostly work quite well. It is not very often at all that I have to wait too long. So mostly I think it works. There will be people with experiences that are bad, however i always look at the amount of times that it happens as a percentage of all fli...
Jul 25, 2017, 01.21 PM / Do 'priority' luggage tags make a difference?
I find as a VA platinum on Air NZ I'm treated as an Elite level passenger. Cabin Crew once told me that they serve Elite's first then everyone else. This is in J though. I'm pretty happy we have an 18 month old son and they really help a lot to make the trip easier.
Dec 23, 2016, 01.16 PM / Is Elite status worth it after earning gold?
Yeah, that makes sense. Thanks for that.
Dec 08, 2016, 08.38 AM / Qantas announces 50% Extra Status Credits
Its all in their system. Only they know what their priorities are and the algorithm Also this could be in reaction to finding out that VA have been running a Double Status credits promo for December. It was targeted to certain FF.
