Py­jama prob­lems

Waikato Times - - Opinion -

Fan­tas­tic that Air New Zealand is fly­ing Auck­land to Chicago. Es­pe­cially if you are a Har­ley rider do­ing Route 66. How­ever, at nearly 17 hours, Sin­ga­pore Air­lines, Qan­tas and Qatar of­fer py­ja­mas in busi­ness class. Air NZ? Sox and a face mask with ear plugs.

Given Air NZ is much more ex­pen­sive than other air­lines, how­ever the ser­vice is great, I want to say, this is not good enough.

Houston and Chicago should both have busi­ness premier py­ja­mas. Given we want to at­tract Har­ley rid­ers and oth­ers to and from our coun­try, this is not good enough. Har­ley’s are the cream of the crop mo­tor­cy­cles. If Qan­tas can man­age py­ja­mas from Syd­ney to Dal­las Fort worth, and Qatar to Doha, this is not a good look Air New Zealand. Busi­ness I un­der­stand, Premier? What does that word mean to you? Clearly you want peo­ple who can go busi­ness class not to fly with you!

Shame, I thought we in New Zealand were ahead of the game. Seems we are happy to be be­hind oth­ers. Is Air New Zealand fol­low­ers or lead­ers? That is why I am again fly­ing to Madrid via Doha busi­ness class.

Shame re­ally, love Air NZ busi­ness class, great ser­vice but the same clothes all the way? No. You can do bet­ter, but per­haps you don’t re­ally want premier trav­ellers.’’

If Harry and Me­gan got py­ja­mas, why not us? Then again, per­haps they went Qan­tas that did give them pj’s. You pay for what you get, but if you are trav­el­ling busi­ness class do you want mem­o­rable or . . . just say­ing Air NZ and I know you have had pj’s. Come on, the re­turn cus­tomers will more than cover the cost.

While you are at it, get the seats to face the right way so you can see out of the win­dow.
