    Aaah, the benefit of real competition :)

    Amazing how this just about coincides with Virgin Blue planning to fly domestically in NZ.

    Don't worry, I'm sure they're still making money from the Fuel Fines!

    Definitely an interesting tactic from QF. It will be interesting to see what availability is like.

    OT: Congrats on 747 posts Odoherty. ;)

    I'm presuming it is the 48 hour sale.

    Some routes are $NZ38. The fare breakdown is as follows:

    Fare Charges/Taxes Total Price
    0.98 + 37.01 for 1 adult = 37.99 (NZD)

    I believe there is also a credit card surcharge for domestic NZ flights (as well as the departure taxes in certain airports that have to be paid when leaving)

    The listing of sale fares in this promo are:

    Ahh, that sale. I already posted about that on Flyertalk sales thread. I thought it was more something like the Norfolk Air $1 sale. Didn't see the bit about before taxes before.

    Great deal. I have managed to snag AKL-CHC Nov 8 for NZ$37.99 and CHC-ZQN Nov 9 for NZ$48.99. I should also book ZQN-CHC Nov 12 for NZ$48.99 while it is still available.
