Air NZ, I live there, were talking of this route before Covid reared it's head and remembering they no longer fly to the UK so Vancouver and soon New York will be their furthest routes. My preference is to Fly Air NZ I have never had a bad experience with them.
I just did the JFK to SIN nonstop at 18:50 min and that was after Russia airspace was closed. Singapore Air only offers premium economy on this flight and I am surprised they are offering economy. No way would I ever do less then premium economy with additional space, leg and foot rests and more recline on such a flight. I would imagine this new route would only be West from JFK as the JFK to SIN is almost equal East West or North (not north while Russia is closed) and Auckland is about 10 hours from SIN south and east
I think is a good and bold move by Air New Zealand. Like all other airlines they have been hit hard over the past couple of years. It is going to be the ones who take bold maybe risky steps now to get back on their feet who might bounce back first. Looking at new routes instead of relying on old established ones, to me anyways shows forward thinking.... Hope it works out well for them.
Absolutely - there's not many airlines yet taking on such long-haul - nobody's queuing up to reinstate heading back down to NZ - thinking outside the box is just what NZ needs to recover from the horrendous lockdown imposed
U r so on pt with ur statement. A very long ð« loved ANZ and hope it works for them in my city of NYC!
When will writers learn that direct and non stop are not the same. Also show a 787 and not a 777..
