Its about a 4/5 hour flight right ? ive done it from BNE and it was a pleasant journey with good service, good food, new comfortable aircraft and no turbulence.

No Personal IFE and PTVs, so might pay to bring a book to read or something.

You will have leather seats with a 32" seat pitch in economy. Its around a 4 hour 50 minute flight AKL-ADL and a 4 hour 10 minute flight ADL-AKL. Don't expect much on the meal side. Movie will be shown. A320's are generally comfortable, you should enjoy the flight, better than Qantas on the route.

Just flew AKL-NAN-AKL on the A320, and it was a nice flight, as usual with NZ. The outbound flight was on ZK-OJI. The return flight was on an A320 operated by Freedom Air (ZK-OJE), but in NZ livery and with NZ staff. The only difference was that there were no leather seats, but it was a nice flight all the same. One thing I did not like is that it took ages for the crew to collect the empty meal trays - far longer than usual...

Have fun!
