    Introduction
    Air New Zealand’s IATA code is NZ, though this can also refer to New Zealand as a country. Please be sure not to get confused with AZ – which is the airline code of Alitalia, Italy’s national carrier!

    Air New Zealand is a Star Alliance member airline. Head on over to the MilePoint Star Alliance forum for more details on that alliance, or stick around here on the Air New Zealand Airpoints forum to learn more about our awesome national airline.

    Routes
    Air New Zealand is the main domestic airline in New Zealand, and the only carrier flying many of the smaller regional routes. It also services the Pacific Islands, Australia, Asia, UK, USA, and Canada – and the rest of the world through Star Alliance partners.

    Pricing
    If you’re looking for domestic flights within New Zealand, it’s best to book on the New Zealand version of the website at www.airnz.co.nz. Many of the international websites don’t have all the cheaper fare classes loaded, so you’ll get the best deals on our local site. Also, be sure to check out www.grabaseat.co.nz – where daily specials on many routes are posted at various times throughout the day. Sometimes you may even be able to snap up cheap international deals or “$1 flights”!

    That's somewhat charitable, calling Alitalia a carrier, don't you think? ;)

    They have to be an airline in order to get Crankyflier's Jackass award.

    I feel certain that I have hated them for significantly longer than he has...we used to live in Rome in the 1980s. 'nuff said. (Is there a smiley for bashing your head into the wall? I feel there should be.)
