Dirt cheap one-ways to AKL in late August, as cheap as $339 from SFO/LAX, book on ua dot com
And in fact, the deal isn’t as limited as just being from San Francisco as Los Angeles, though the cheapest fares are from there, and though it does appear to be limited to August travel. It’s bookable at United.com.
The Flight Deal is now covering this as well.
These are one-way fares, and not roundtrip, so book paid tickets to New Zealand and award flights one-way back.
TFD finds prices for these one-way as:
- Newark – $458
- Dallas – $458
- DC – $523
- Los Angeles – $389
- San Francisco – $389
Note also that while domestic segments will earn miles, the fare on Air New Zealand will not earn miles when crediting to United or US Airways. So it’s a great cheap flight to New Zealand, but not a good mileage run.
