Review of Cape Town to Auckland flight

10 Feb 2010

Frances chose a (mostly) Qantas flight from Cape Town to Auckland via Johannesburg and Sydney (Australia). They only got boarding passes for the first 2 legs of the trip, and then there was "a problem getting our boarding passes for our flight to Auckland as there was no one at the transit desk". For the leg from Sydney to Auckland the flight had a Quantas flight code but it was operated on behalf of Jetstar, and she had to buy her own refreshments. Travellers will want to be aware that Frances found Auckland Airport were "very sensitive with regards to bio-security and we had to declare that we had walking boots (and stick) and what we had forgotten about was a wooden hippo we had bought in Cape Town".
