Is this a scheduled flight or a charter? What if say, some Mormon family or a group of really Orthodox Jews booked tickets on this flight and didn't know that it was a 'themed' flight?

And what if the flight goes down in the South Pacific and they're all stranded on a tropical island together where they're forced to subsist on diet coke, mac cosmetics, and elicit party drugs until help finally arrives??

What a hoot! This flight will give new meaning to the term ""CRUISE ALTITUDE""......I dont even want to think what entertainment will be offered on the IFE/PTV system.

Its good that this group will be putting the ""fun"" back into flying.....I wish that I could go.

As far as I know, NZ doesn't fly SFO-SYD so this would be a charter flight. However, even if I'm wrong and they do fly to SYD from SFO, I'm sure it'd be given some designator (special flight number or note in the res system) or they flight wouldn't be available to book in CRS.

Anyway, sounds entertaining. I think that it might be a bit TOO gay for me, but I think it's clever advertising and a good show by NZ in supporting the gay and lesbian communities in both Australia, New Zealand, and the US.

Undoubtedly a charter. Like, say, the Haj flights. But if not, then I'm sure the onboard closets have plenty of space...  Smile

I think Kiwis are very well suited to doing something like this, as I never had the feeling they take things so bloody seriously.
Compare this with the (now deleted, I think) thread started by a someone who complained about having been rubbed by a F/A (admittedly with his wife sitting next to him), where a.netters were actually saying things like "sexual harassment bordering on assault, call the police"...

It's not a bad marketing ploy at all, and that "average fare" sounds reasonable. Sounds better than some gay charter flights on TZ I used to take after a cruise and the f/a's said:'girlfriends, can I have your attention?" Good for NZ!  Smile

When these special flights with NZ show up on the booking page, the flight is ALWAYS showen in a different colour. When NZ did a mardi gras flight from AKL-SYD-AKL earlier this year with a B763 (which was booked out), the flight was showen with a pink background and, when you clicked on the flight to book it, it warned you that this was a special charter flight etc.

NZ doesn't fly SFO-SYD so this would be a charter flight.

NZ does not fly direct from the USA to Australia anymore, so its a charter

The kiwi attitude to life, is always a relaxed style. If you have been on any NZ flight, especially International flights then you will have noticed that the FAs are very relaxed about things.

This isn't the first time NZ have done a special flight like this. Over the last year, NZ have operated several special flight to Australia using A320s and a B763. The flights were Concert at 30,000 feet, yes a real life concert in-flight, a catwalk flight, with, I think FAs even walking down the 'catwalk' for the Sydney Fashin Week and a Mardi Gra flight using a B763 earlier this year.

change the diet coke to sugar-free red bull, mac cosmetics to yves saint laurent and well, party drugs stay the same..... help finally arrives is when men STOP WEARING PLEATS IN YOUR PANTS. and send that SFO flight to LAX... everyone knows the REAL ACTION is here!!!!!!!!!!
