More likely EWR to be pedantic.


You’re right, I forgot about UA.

NZ has a pretty good economy compared to other airlines but the back section is a little.more cramped but I've done IAH and I'm 6'4" tall.

Question I have is on service in the back. I know these are night flights but curious given stage length if NZ do a 3rd service or have food down the back. I know you can order cookies from your seat but curious if they do extra meal


Do any of the ULH flights on any carrier offer 3 full meals? Galley configurations could be an issue?


I already gave you two examples a few posts up. :)

Why would Air New Zealand want to fly to JFK when United obviously owns Newark ? Is there some friction in th Star Alliance family the way UA and Singapore have frosty relations.

I agree on galley space just curious with NZ now ex ORD dinner with 1.5 hours of take off nothing for 12 hours then breakfast 2 hours out of AKL just seems like a mid flight snack maybe needed

Wednesday’s ORD-AKL flight spent over 17 hours in the air! That’s one long flight!

Would AKL ever consider having a USCIS Pre-clearance facility? If they do, then connecting in ORD (or any other US gateway) would become a breeze!


Its probably about time it could make pre-clearance worth it, AKL now has

AKL-HNL NZ/HA
AKL-LAX NZ/AA
AKL-SFO NZ/UA
AKL-IAH NZ
AKL-ORD NZ


Who has preclearance? I know DUB and AUH - anyone else ?

There are an awful lot of countries who could have it if they wanted but I believe it's very expensive.

There's also sensitivity around the perception of kinda giving up sovereignty ( kinda, sorta ).



AUA (Aruba) has pre-clearance.
Whatever
