Herald Our Glorious Return!

4 Jun

Dear family and friends, commence the planning for our welcome home party. You have less than 6 months. We just bought our tickets home. We depart on November 14 at 11:45am and arrive at 2:00pm. Just a wee 5 hour layover in Auckland. Although there was one cheaper flight than the one we chose, it was on a crummy Chinese airline with a long layover in Beijing. We’d like to see China, but a layover is not the way to do it, plus after going with discount Air Pacific on the way over here, we are through with the budget flights.

Strangely, it was cheaper to book round trip tickets than one-way. So if anyone wants to fly to Melbourne a week after we get back, we have some tickets to use. Unfortunately, we can’t sell or return them. So, Michelle – you can take my passport and fly around. How about it? Only a 14 hour flight! Fun times!

    Way to go (or rather, to return). I flew Air New Zealand last year on a leg between somewhere in the Eastern US and LA. The best experience in coach I’ve EVER had on ANY airline. It was just superb. You’re gonna love it. Sit back and enjoy!

      That’s good to hear. Rob has flown them before and liked it. When we go to NZ at the end of the month we’re flying Jetstar, a cheap and dumpy Australian airline. But it’s only 3 hours.
