*** The Current SOLD OUT sign on the site is still there from the previous auction! The next one will start on Tuesdsay! ***

Ok, after the success of the singapour airlines deal which pretty much crashed their site for 2 days, Air Newzealand are getting in on the action and are running another 'Bags-it' competition.

This works like a reverse auction... Flights start at a set price with a set of available dates, as the seats sell, the availablility of dates gets less, but so do the prices!

Last time they ran this offer the closing price for HongKong was £150 (if I remember correctly!) but there were only 10 seats at that price. This time is appears they are doing tickets to Auckland only (according to the e-mail). I've no idea if they will go as low this time, but fingers crossed!!

It all kicks off at noon on Tuesday 16th June and will run until 18:15, or until the tickets run out (last time they ran out about 17:30).

Good luck!!

Oh sorry... please unexpire mods.

Oooooh, tempting.

i'll get seriously aroused if i can fly to nz for £150

According to Moonchild on MSE (and the email they received from Air NZ), on this auction [COLOR="Red"]instead of dropping the price every hour, the prices are going to drop randomly[/COLOR] instead! Just a heads up in case you were expecting the prices to decrease in a standard way. Looks like you'll have to take a chance and just book when the price is at one you're happy with (even though it may or may not drop further).

No you see I understand the simple concept of a reverse auction

Will the dates change throughout the auction? Or is that just wishful thinking?
Thanks

So you obviously think £701 is a good price then, as that was my only comment on the matter.
Or, you're a troll.....:whistling:

No, my clearly made point was don't expect great prices at the beggining of a REVERSE auction.

After the great Hong Kong offer they did a month or so ago I've got to say that I'm disappointed so far - only 7seats available and the current price is £541. At least then they had well over 100 seats to begin with. Singapore Airlines have flights to Auckland for 367, covering similar dates if you can find some that suit.

£521, still waiting.............

£491, going down rather slowly
