    Business Class Flights to New Zealand

    Hi, just wondered if anyone could help - my dad wants to fly business class to New Zealand with a brief stopover in Singapore. Does anyone know of any good deals at the moment and is it more expensive to go via Singapore? Also, are Singapore Airlines better than Air New Zealand? Any help would be great, thanks, Kate

    Hi Kate,
    Singapore Airlines is at least the equal of Air New Zealand, and a much better choice for stopover in Singapore. Indeed, Air New Zealand majors on the west coast USA-Pacific route, and if it offers routing through Singapore at all, the frequency/choice /cost will be much more restricted. Good luck with your search.
    Mike.

    To get some meaningful help you'll need to advise dates for each leg of the journey. Also, is this a one way trip or is there a return, when is that and is a stopover required?
    Air New Zealand do not fly from the UK to Singapore, only to Hong Kong and Los Angeles (and New Zealand obviously!).
    Anyway, I've flown both in Business class and Singapore Airlines not only knocks ANZ into touch it's probably at the very top of the pile worldwide.

    thank you for your reply. He would like to stop in Singapore for a couple of days and then on too NZ. Return flight - his dates are flexible but would ideally like to go out for the whole of May. Thanks again.

    Came back from Singapore last April with Air Newzealand. Would never use them again. Just a glorified Ryanair. Staff wernt very happy at all, there uniform was dull and the food was terrible. Would fly with Singapore Airlines if it was twice the price

    Through Travelocity.co.uk seems to get the best fare (around £1000 more with some of the other flight search sites)
