    They are "Smart Saver" fares.
    Interesting the SYD-WLG fare show as a $1 e/w, with +++ it comes out at $212 return.

    These are TASMAN SMART SAVER FARE:

    Anyone know what class these book into? Could you earn miles on UA, SQ or another *A member?

    That is plain spooky... I was just going to ask the same question....

    In my case for a friend NOT looking at Grab a seat fares (although kudos to NZ for extending them to Australia) but for a normal Smart Saver..

    So... anyone know? :?:

    Hmmm... Just had a look at the United (.com.au) website.... It says "most fares" on NZ earn 100% miles yada yada....

    Gives me a horrible feeling that phrase.....

    Because you have to give NZ your MP # when booking and I suspect that gives THEM control over miles allocation.. (???) Is that how it works?

    Cheapest fares (smart saver) on NZ's trans-tasman and domestic operations do not earn mileage on any carrier.

    On long haul operations, the cheapest general fares (global saver) earn mileage on AirNZ Airpoints programme only (not on other carriers)

    Grab-a-seat deals do not earn mileage at all, regardless of length.

    Do we get the same fare for the return journey? e/g/ if they had a Syd-Christchurch fare for $129, would the Christchurch-Sydney fare be the same (or would it be a normal non grabaseat discount fare)?

    No, due to Australian Departure Tax being absent it would be approx $33 less - i.e. $96 in that example.

    Note you need to pay NZD25 on the day of departure to fly back to Oz (until sometime next year where it will be included in the +++).
