Anne here… YIKES there is no getting away from it. It is a very, very long journey from the UK to New Zealand. And I genuinely can’t decide whether it is better to come more or less straight through as we have done this time. Or to have an overnight stop over half way. Pros and cons for both.
BUT I can’t praise Air New Zealand enough. Just the loveliest staff, fantastic customer service throughout, great food. I have to say Premium Economy seats were worth every penny AND they were expensive, so that is saying a lot.
