Tons Of Air New Zealand Business Class Awards In June & July

Business class award space on Air New Zealand has been quite sparse lately. In the last several months, I’ve seen business class award space to/from Los Angeles (LAX) on Air New Zealand pop up here and there, but not chunks of space.

However, No Mas Coach found that they have released a nice block of award space in June and early July. On some days, you can even continue to Australia and save a ton of miles.

There are tons of ways to book these awards, but I’d go with Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles. A non-stop business class award from LAX to Auckland (AKL) is 62,500 Flying Club miles while adding a connection to Sydney (SYD) — or other cities in Australia — will reduce the mileage requirement to only 45,000 miles one-way.
