Remember the last time you boarded a domestic Air New Zealand flight? You probably noticed the first third of the plane was full of corporates.
These people sit at the front of the plane because they are the airline's most frequent flyers, and as such, get preferred seating.
They often book last-minute and pay a premium for flexible fares. They are the kind of travellers that are a very important part of the profitability mix for Air New Zealand.

Here is another challenge for the business going forward how to get corporate customers back they help to make flights profitable in the first place. If there is only minimal demand 3% of what it use to be before COVD-19 and so little revenue coming in operating losses will just continue for years Perhaps Jetstar won't even return to the NZ domestic market ever!
