June/July Available for Air New Zealand Business Class Awards!

Just a quick post… and if you don’t get on this fast, you’re going to miss out. 

I’m here at the Frequent Traveler University listening to Gilbert Ott from God Save the Points and he clued me onto this amazing deal with Air New Zealand. Did you know that you can transfer your Chase, Citi, and American Express points to Virgin Atlantic? 

Did you also know that Virgin Atlantic partners with Air New Zealand?

And did you also know that you can use only 90,000 miles round trip to get from the Los Angeles to Australia in Business Class? It’s only 125,000 from anywhere else in the USA.

All things I learned by being in attendance today, and so I started to go down a rabbit hole…

Unicorn Availability

Finding space on Air New Zealand is pretty tough. It’s called “the Unicorn” and they sure are hard to find. I can’t find any space in August, September, October, November… hell all the way into next year I can’t find anything.

BUT…

July is pretty open right now. If you’ve been wanting to go down under this MAY be your chance.

62,500 with on Virgin Atlantic…

90,000 with United Miles…

Sounds like a steal for me!

So, you going to New Zealand? If you snag a seat let me know 🙂

  1. You have incorrectly read the chart. LA to South Pacific is referring to Air NZ’s seasonal Saturday only nonstop LAX-RAR (Cook Islands) which is in fact 90k VS round trip.

    As the chart clearly states that connecting flights are priced segment by segment, if you’d like to fly LAX-AKL-SYD you’ll pay 62.5k + 15k each way. That’s 155k VS round trip, not 90k.

    Gary and Lucky have both quoted your post above with the same incorrect information. Fake news spreads quickly.

    • Thank you FFT. I appreciate you clueing me into this. As I stated, I got the information also from a source, so I was only as good as what I was given. Thanks for reading though and giving me the good news. FF programs can be damned complicated. I will still take 77.5 all day long, cheaper than most other programs.

  2. why does everyone goes GA GA over Air NZ J, among the J hard products, Air NZ has the worst seats out there, the feeling is, if you want the 17 hrs coffin feeling then this is it for you. Yes NZ is a cool place but no, I dont care Air NZ, I would rather go through QF for the incovienient just to avoid that seat.

  3. You’re aware of the weather during those months? Lots of rain in some parts, chilly, blustery at times. Mountainous areas are great then if you want to ski (though a long way to travel for that) but otherwise not really spectacular.
