Very happy with that price. A380 for DUB-AUK going out and whole Journey back to LGW.

If any of you are booked with Air New Zealand internationally they are cancelling their flight between London and Hong Kong and vice versa in early March. They have to re-protect you onto to alternative flights. Cathay Pacific and Virgin if you are stopiing over in Hong Kong or via LA if not so it seems.

Do bear in mind that if flying via LA, even if just transitting you will require an ESTA/Visa Waiver.

If you are booked with them and haven't heard anything, it may be an idea to contact your agent!!!

I'm on a Jetstar from Auckland to Dunedin on March 4th & that too has been changed from 1630 to 1410. My Jetstar flight from Wellington to Auckland to catch the flight home has also been bought forward by an hour.
Neither of these changes adversely affect me but hopefully that's the end of the changes now.

Fernando and I both detrementally affected by these tossers also. My flight down to Queenstown brought forward two and a half hours and our flight from Christchurch to Welli moved to 06.55am from 16.15pm.
After waiting in a queue for 20mins the 'Aussie' (he was'nt) I spoke to confirmed what I already knew. That there were still seats on our original flight (now cheaper) and moved us back onto it.
When you look at options for these flights now, Quantas comes up as an option with a remarkably similar price. Either they have elected to share the flight or as I suspect they are a subsidiary of Quantas. In either case it looks like they have opted to move the Brits off their flights as they are the least likely to complain, as you can only do so by phoning them. No email address or postal which would be insufficient in any case.
