Flight to Hong Kong

The flight from Auckland to Hong Kong was a pleasant one. Scrumptious food, large varity of movies and a 180 degree bed for a good night sleep. 11 hours of flight didn't seem that long after-all. Thanks to Air New Zealand airpoints for the free upgrade!

Air New Zealand Business Premier (aka First Class)


This is what is called travel in style, I supposed?

OMG!!! that sure is travelling in style & comfort! Never thought airplane food can look that good kakaka. How did you guys get the free upgrade? Had my fair share of travel for the past few years and I was always hoping to get a free upgrade but...none whatsoever :(
Can't wait for the rest of your photos!!!

woooo!! waaaaaa!! I'm so envious, you've got a free upgrade! that looks soooo comfy, and yup, it would've certainly made your 11-hour flight much more enjoyable. *envy... envy...*

Doreen, you might have been asked this a million times but I will still ask you again... are you related to the Robert version of your surname?

I’m member of Air New Zealand frequent flyer, so I collect points every time I fly with Air New Zealand or their start alliance partners like Singapore Airlines. The accumulated points can be used to get rewards like hotel accommodation, car rental, free air ticket, free upgrade etc etc. Qantas has their own frequent flyer system too. You should go join to earn their points lar, then your first class’s seat is not very far from you liao.

I actually wished the flight was 20 hours. Hehehe.

zewt:
You’re actually the first to ask me this question but I don’t know how to answer as I have no idea what’s this Robert version that you were referring to…..er…mind elaborate a bit?

eastcoastlife said...

Oooo... travelling in style! I like the seats.

Irenecheong said...

wah i m super envious!!!
why din NZ had 747 when don and i flew from sg to auckland years ago .. :(. we got upgraded. but still.. NOT Business Premiere.

Doreen said...

zewt:
I googled this Robert Kuok, and only knew that he is Kuok Hock Nian! I didn't know he is called Robert. Hehehe. Well, no, I have nothing to do with him whatsoever. It's pure coincidence. Hehehe

eastcoastlife:
The seats and the overall cabin looks very high tech hor?

irenecheong:
What plane did you and Donald fly with? I think Air NZ has got 747 all along but they had their refurbishment 2 or 3 years back and introduced their 3 classes: Business Premier, Economy Premier and Economy Pacific.

Irenecheong said...

I cant remember leh. i only know is Air NZ. your 747 is megatop?
means with 2 levels on each plane?

Doreen said...

irenecheong:
Yup, two storey one. All 747-400 are two storey one. Emmm...once you moved to Australia hor, should join the Qantas frequent flyer to earn points.
