Another county heard from...
I did the trip from JFK
for my honeymoon almost a year ago today. It's a long way to fly even in J. I flew JFK
to PPT and AKL
I highly recommend the flight sequence and stopping off in Tahiti for a few days before you get to NZ
1) Time zone difference between AKL
and PPT is 1 hour (plus 1 day over the dateline) Compare that to the ~18 hour NYC-AKL
time difference. Our wedding time was chaotic and we were planning on running all over New Zealand. So it was nice to take a few days, do nothing, reset our clock lying on the beach drinking daquiris. Once we arrived in AKL
we were adjusted, rested and relaxed.
2) Uh, cause it's Tahiti.
2.5) What's a nicer surprise for your new wife than a mini-vacation to Tahiti?
3) Our travel agent said we would save a few grand by doing the stopover.
4) Uh, cause it's Tahiti.
