I was invited to there "forum" for input into weekly activities and questions and interaction, i wasnt terribly active for a while but in the last 9 months i have raised many sensitive? subjects and a number of other member in the community did as well. I received a early morning email advising me they had terminated my membership and blocked my logon. I challenged a number of concepts in the belief we were striving for a better NZ but nothing was "rude or derogatory"

I fly Air NZ often between Brisbane and Christchurch but that's about it, I've once done a flight over to Los Angeles but I actually a stop in Honolulu (the flight timings right and you arrive into LAX as a domestic flight).

Interesting comments.For rich5011 - What is NZ 'Forum'? Didn't realise that NZ had one. I would be interested in what you said for you to be lock you out of Airpoints.NZ is like any airline that has its ups and down. I agree, that their product is pretty standard compared to other full service airlines but it has been designed for functionality and good yield. I do agree that NZ needs to have a close look at its premium product and make a decision if it wants to be a full service leisure airline as oppose to a premium full service airline like SQ, EY, EK, etc.NZ is a small airline competing with large full services carriers like QF, SQ, UA, AA, etc and LCC's on the Tasman, Asian and Trans Pacific routes, so it it has to have standardised aircraft, cabin product and fares so it can be adaptable to competition and travel/tourism market ups and downs to to make profit and stay in business.This flexible business model is seen in the aircraft NZ is buying, like all Y class seating configuration for the A320/A321's to allow mix n match of domestic and international short haul routes, the B789/B772's and for short to medium international routes and the B773's for international long haul routes. I suspect, that NZ will replace the aging B772's with B789's from 2022 onwards. The next next 4 B789's being delivered from 2017 with a increase Business and Premier Economy seating and an upgraded Business Premier product is a prelude to using the B789's on international long haul routes.With regards to NZ domestic routes, NZ is standardising on the ATR72-600's and probably the some ATR42-600 to replace the aging Q300's.I prefer to fly NZ, as I know that NZ has high maintenance standards, its reliable and the cabin and flight crew are friendly 98% of the time. Yes, I have experienced bad cabin and ground staff but it hasn't put me off supporting and flying NZ. My other prefer airline is SQ.I think 'henrus' comment, to say that NZ as a 'commercial' relationship with stuff.co.nz, is a bit harsh without giving facts. Like any LLC, JQ will always be in the public eye with negative media reporting, especially from people who want full airline services at $10 fares.
This week we have a couple
new activities for you!
First, learn about a unique
approach being used at LAX to help travellers deal with stress at the airport.
Then, try out a new ThinkFast activity where you must respond with
the first thing that
comes to mind. Log in to see the topic!
All the best,
Your customer forum
