Dave, it might look attractive for economy seats, but given the going price for an economy seat, say SYD-LAX, is likely to be about 20% of the going price for a J seat, and probably more like 10-15% of an F seat, we suddenly see a J award being five times the "cost" of WHY, and F being 7-10 times the cost of WHY.thadocta said:Best FF scheme around (for redemptions, that is - not sure yet about earnings).
That makes more sense then. Especially since there is only one class for NZ domestic flights anyway. Does trans-Tasman come under short haul as well? or just NZ domestic?Kiwi Flyer said:Apart from short-haul, the new NZ scheme still has fixed rate redemptions (way less than equivalent $) - ratios broadly in line with existing schemes incl QF.
It is only shorthaul, or where the bucket for fixed rate is used up, that 1 airbuck = 1 $ is used.
