Air New Zealand Sale: Up to $600 Off Flights to Any Destination from US
Fly to the Cook Islands in Business Class for $1698, economy fares start at $698! Air New Zealand is running a sale from the US — economy tickets are $200 off roundtrip fares, premium economy $400, and business class $600 off. The sale is good on any flights from the US in the current booking range, tickets must be booked by January 7, 2016.
Destinations include New Zealand, Australia, London, and Cook Islands, with the cheapest fares being from Los Angeles and San Francisco.
These aren’t crazy awesome deals, but good pricing if you already had a trip coming up. I flew Air New Zealand a few years ago from Sydney to Aukland and enjoyed both the food and service in business class, definitely better than US domestic first.
The Cook Islands caught my fancy, so I looked into business class tickets from LAX. The $1698 rate was available for dates in April-November (I stopped looking past then) for 7/14 day trips leaving on a Sunday and returning on a Saturday. It was $1795 for some weekends in March.
Since I neither scuba nor snorkle, a week felt too long. If you’re considering it, here are some additional notes from my trip investigations this morning:
- Unfortunately there are no direct flights to Fiji from from Rarotonga.
- Tickets to nearby New Zealand were around $500+.
- The nonstop flights from LAX don’t feature lie-flat seats in business
