I really want to head back to New Zealand/Australia, and while I’d love to fly my beloved Air New Zealand, I’ve come to the realization that it’s time to give up on finding award seats with them from the US to New Zealand in BusinessPremier. I then checked out LAX/SFO-SYD on UA in F, and found tons of award seats. Some days are even XF9 (which means they’re willing to offer at least nine award seats in first on a single flight, more than half of the cabin!). I’m guessing this has to be a glitch of some sort, or maybe they just fired all of inventory management in the latest round of cuts. Regardless, for those that want to visit Australia in F, this is a good time to book!
