And have to agree the IFE was pretty good, with a decent selection. Don't know if it was due to being a night flight, but it was a much better flight than the QF MEL-LAX flight on the way there, great service & I managed to get around 5 hours sleep. I actually felt reasonably fresh getting into AKL at dawn, not bad considering that I'd spent the afternoon flying up from Cancun, and having to clear CPB before getting on the flight to AKL. If I was going back to that part of the world, would take that flight again, instead of transiting LAX....

I can't help but took pleasure in some of the sarcastic remarks peppered throughout. Very entertaining. Thank you Indeed, I don't really quite understand the "soft porn" lighting
