The Camels Back Has Been Broken
Air NZ, bucket carrier of the wrolds greatest travellers, has just announced that they are putting up the price of Business Class airpoints rewards tickets!... By 20%
So now, not only is it harder to earn airpoints with AirNZ, it's harder to redeem them. They have removed the one loyalty incentive that is not directly price/service based from their arsenal. I've already had a bleet about their baggage allowance rules this month and now they decide to do this!
AirNZ have also put the price up for points transfers from other programmes- so no more American Express points to AirNZ in 2005....
So stuff em! I'm gonna burn up my last few airpoints on some pre increase business class trips to Cairns to go diving and then I'm outa here..... Qantas and One World here I come!
