They refused saying that the US law did not allow them do that.

the Law does not allow us to give good service.
Think about it. The airlines has no process in place through its administration or catering areas to mail postage for customers. So what do you want the individual crew to do? Take it for you, clear customs/security with it - not only in US but again in NZ
, and then post it on arrival???
1. It is a big ask anyway. Quite a favour I think.
2. Would anyone in their right mind(!) accept packages, mail or postcards and carry them on behalf of a stranger? Granted a postcard cannot conceal any device/drugs/prohibited items. But it could carry traces of drug or explosive residue. Where would the crew member stand in that situation if it were detected? "Oh but this customer gave it to me. He seemed OK
and I just wanted to give good service..." Yeah right.
The crew did not have to be rude but I would at least be quite frank to you about the issues involved. With all due respect (seriously) you are ignorant to think that these crew are failing to give you good service or are wrong in any way. Only a fool would do as you requested.
They are flight attendants NOT post men. It is nice when people go above and beyond for customers. But to do so in this case would be plainly foolish.
