Air Pacific versus Air New Zealand?

Jump to last reply

I gave up using my AA miles on Qantas to New Zealand and have actually found a travel agent that got some great fares for me direct to New Zealand-cheaper than online myself. My question to the Fodors crowd is: would you pay an extra $400USD to fly Air New Zealand nonstop to Auckland or go cheaper for Air Pacific with a stopover and plane change(and more hours on the ground) in Fiji before going on to Auckland. I would always chose the nonstop but wondering if ANZ is comfortable and alright for the long flight-its a 777-300 there and a 777-200 back.

Any tips on either of them would be greatly appreciated as I need to make a decision ASAP.
