    I love this airline anyway and now I just think they are beyond measure.

    Non-Carbohydrate Meal: No starch and carbohydrates in any form

    woo hoo I am so pleased to have learned this. I fly on Friday and was just thinking about making my shake/soup up on the flight (24 hours!) and did a little search on their website and found they do nil carb (in any form) meals!!!! hurrah! I have just informed them I want that option.

    I am sooooo looking forward to my flights!:D

    yes - I've done the 32 hour trip before. I only have 50min changeover in Singapore (hope the flight isn't delayed!!!) so that is why it is a little quicker.

    I am from there originally but it is a long time since I lived there and quite awhile since I visited. (I'm originally from the Far North but went to University in Auckland). I'm going to spend most of my time in the Nelson region on this trip. I'm told that last week it was 30degrees there. The water is an amazing turquoise blue (quite med-like). Ooohhh I can't wait

    no, not been there. Do you have friends/family there?

    Yes, but Nelson has the most sunshine hours in the country ... so fingers crossed it doesn't rain while I'm there

    only a problem if you think it is one. And 7 years is a long time to have known him. Really wish i could check him out for you now! Suggest he has a holiday in Nelson over Christmas (ha ha).
