You are right there is no non Commercial Flights flying the Pacific. So Ride guide does not apply untill one arrives in the U.S. or Europe. The fares from N.Z. are cheap on the Commercial flights,however the flights in the U.S. and especially the return flights from U.S. are double that of N.Z. or Pacific flights. The airlines appear to be really hitting the travelling public in the U.S. since September the 11th / especially one way fares. I was quoted Boston to L.A. as $980 U.S. I can fly N.Z. to Hawaii for $550 U,S. and to L.A. $750 U.S. return, and to Florida $900 U.S.return.
The price quoted Boston to N.Z. was $1250 U.S.a one way ticket. ouch!!
