Hi all - a bit of a long question about the new codeshare arrangement between Qantas and Air NZ.

I'm guessing that the deal technically (at least for Qantas anyway) was meant for connections onward to Air NZ services instead of a seperate flight as would be the case on a multi-city booking. For that, Qantas likely wants you to take Jetstar. However, I think the Air New Zealand website is more lenient in that regard whilst Qantas either has incapable technology to allow this to happen or simply encourages customers to fly JQ within New Zealand.

I'm guessing the arrangement for QF coded NZ flights was for onward connections as the previous poster suggested. I believe this is also the case for QF coded JQ NZ flights.
I believe QF intentionally make their multicity booking system restrictive on codeshare and interlines when separate flights are involved. For instance you can book SYD-(LAX)-JFK/MSY-(DFW)-SYD on the same ticket but not SYD->(LAX)->JFK/JFK->MSY/MSY->(DFW)->SYD.
