Long Haul Air Economy Travel reinvented & timeless service

Over the years I have seen the marketing machines for airlines use various hyped expressions to describe their latest service introduction…usually it is just oversell with relatively little innovative thinking. This mornings news  from Air New Zealand with their genuinely redesigned economy seat…er couch is fresh thinking indeed. I commend them on their innovation.

By definition travel to New Zealand is long haul due to it location, but the effort is rewarded when you get there. One of the truly great country house experiences anywhere in the world awaits you at Huka Lodge which just received the Tatler Award for enduring excellence. Huka Lodge holds the distinction as either the only, or one of only two places in the world to host Queen Elizabeth II on three separate occasions for a personal trip. Not something you see on many hotel brochures!

New Zealand luxury lodge addition

Julian Robertson, owner of Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand has added a lodge in Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand to his portfolio. It was purchased in August and currently in the midst of refurbishments, with a proposed re-opening in 2010. If history is anything to go by, Julian’s latest facility will be impeccable and a wonderful addition to the experience in Queenstown. The website can be viewed at http://www.matakauri.co.nz ; definitely worth keeping an eye on the progress.
