flight direct to New Zealand because of a storm and weight
restrictions. Hmmm not sure I swallow that BUT the 14hr flight I had
was smooth and I had 9hours sleep.
A full plane. 747-400 series holding 412 passengers. My fellow
passenger was a 19yr old Fijian Indian who lives in Santa Monica and
was travelling to visit his mum and 2 sisters in Auckland. His main
concern was missing the new Simpsons movie and instead, having to shop
at Target for Dora things for his 6 year old sister.
He has made sure I found my way to the transfer lounge and correct gate!!
A 3 hour flight to nz is ahead .....
