I'm off to USA & Canada via USA as soon as I can.They could do a token gesture of doing some points planes for the first few days similar to NZ flights. If flights to the UK do resume in late December I'll probably go then or early in 2022 (depending on pricing and seating availability).
We flew to Canada nonstop to YVR few Januarys ago (early January) but was very expensive in economy. Over $3k return from memory. Next time, I will fly to LAX or SFO & have a stopover & save a fortune.
