Air New Zealand To Frankfurt

Mon Oct 23, 2000 12:54 am

My father has been looking for flights from Frankfurt to Auckland in Air New Zealand, and he says these flights are code-shared with Lufthansa. Does Air New Zealand fly to Frankfurt with their own aircraft?

Thank you,

Yes, there's only NZ flights from FRA to Auckland. They operate their own B747-400s from FRA via LAX to AKL.

Everybody is correct: Air New Zealand flies FRA-LAX-NAN-AKL twice weekly with a 747-400; I think that the flights depart FRA on Friday and Saturday. On the other days of the week, it is possible to fly from FRA-LAX with Lufthansa (NZ codeshare flight number) and then on to AKL with NZ on their aircraft, but i think that the stopover time in LAX is very long under this scheme. Air New Zealand also has daily B747-400 service from LHR to LAX and continuing to AKL; thats it for NZ in Europe. NZ's service, in all classes, is great; have had wonderful flights with them on these ultra-long-haul routes. The only negative thing I can think of is that the ground time at LAX is spent in a horrible waiting area (even when you fly business, as the business lounge is on the other side of customs) with lots of confusion and an inadequate ground staff.

Along with the AKL-LAX-LHR/FRA there is also codesharing with Singapore Airlines. Air NZ flys to Singapore on a 767-300 and you can connect with Singapore 747-400s to Manchester, Frankfurt and London. Hope this helps.
