I have just returned from New Zealand. I haven't being home to New Zealand for 14 years(No excuse) so it was nice to visit my relatives and beautiful New Zealand again.
I flew Air New Zealand or course and I have to say I was a bit dissapointed the Airline has changed. The uniforms the crew have now imo do not seem as nice as they used to be with the gray colors, and war type nurses hats. Service was okay entertainment good but system seemed outdated only providing a small number of shows. I forgot how long this trip is flying from Toronto to Vancouver then direct to Auckland a total of 18 hours I looked at the airshow a couple of times to see where we were 8 hours to go - 6 hours to go.... :shock:
I had a wonderful trip though visiting areas around my home town (Whangarei) and North Island, so much has changed and expanded.

This aircraft arrived to Toronto while I was waiting for my flight

Sounds Great!
I'm sorry Air New Zealand wasn't as you might have expected it, generally their service has improved immensely and when compared to other airlines it's one of the best. I have to agree on the uniforms, they aren't the best and they recieved a lot of criticism, fortunately they are planning to chnge these in the future along with a new livery!
The IFE is a bit out-dated on the long-haul fleet, the IFE on flights to the Pacific Islands and Australia is great.

Did you manage to get up to the Bay of Islands around Waitangi? It's one of the most beautiful places in NZ.

Sounds like your trip to NZ wasn't so good.
Everything sure has grown a lot in the upper north in the last few years. I went to Whangarei in 2004 and again in 2007 and so many more houses, especially north Auckland and new motorways etc.

I have never flown Air NZ other than a few prop flights to Tauranga and Hamilton.
Other than that, I fly Qantas Jetconnect or Pacific Blue domestically and Qantas, Singapore, and Pacific Blue to Australia or long haul.
I just wouldn't fly with NZ, they're a waste of time. Sure, maybe things were better 20 years ago.
