Yes, I’m still champing at the bit to get out of here, but it won’t be happening on Tuesday July 13.
So I was told via text at 11.55pm last night. Their explanation was “operational reasons”. The Air New Zealand phone support spent nearly 5 minutes to tell me they couldn’t explain that further.
I’m now escaping this miserable winter from Wednesday July 14, in the morning.
I’m not overjoyed about it, because it means a six-hour wait in Auckland, and a two-hour stopover in Brisbane.
Meantime, here’s hoping Queensland continues its good covid record.
