Unforgettable Luxury: A First-Class Business Flight Experience on Air New Zealand’s Longest Flight.

The High Cost of Long-Haul Business-Class Flights May Not Be Worth It

As a journalist, I recently had the opportunity to experience a luxurious 12-hour business-class flight from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand. While the cost of Air New Zealand’s business-class seats on this route is typically around $6,000, which is quite expensive, I found myself tempted by the extra space, delicious food, and unlimited drinks that came with my ticket.

Although my budget doesn’t always allow for such extravagance, I was invited by Air New Zealand in the summer of 2021 to visit their headquarters and experience their newly redesigned cabins. For the flight to Auckland, I was seated in business class for the first time. It was an incredibly glamorous experience that left me feeling pampered and comfortable.

Despite the luxurious nature of my trip, I knew it was not something I could afford to do often. While it was definitely an unforgettable experience that left me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated upon arrival in Auckland, I also recognized that it wasn’t worth justifying such an expensive expense again in the near future.
