Onto Auckland, New Zealand
03.02.2019 - 03.02.2019
We are all packed, so we took the opportunity to walk to the harbour for one last look and a few more pics. Of course it was a beautiful sunny morning and very warm already.
Bit of a mix up with our pick up - guy had wrong name but eventually got to airport. The queue for the terminal for drop off area was huge and our driver said it would take 25mins at least to get there. Cars were let in one at a time. The other option, which all onboard went for was to drop us further down for us to walk a short way. It was no more difficult for us with modern wheeley cases. We made the right decision as I think it would have taken us longer than 25mins looking at the queue.
Sydney Airport is huge. We were unable to book in on-line for some reason, so had to find a NZ Air member of staff. She was very helpful and did the check in with us at the machine. She said it was because we were going elsewhere after NZ and they needed to ask questions. This was a bit odd as no other airline had asked these questions. But no problem and we printed our boarding tickets.
No problem with the weight either, although both cases had heavy stickers attached and I haven’t even bought anything yet!!
Had a nice breakfast at The Bistro. Some of the breakfasts being brought out looked amazing. (I always fancy what others have ordered)!
Boarded a little later and found our seats. Lovely extra leg room. Flight was slightly delayed as luggage had to be taken off for passengers who had not arrived. This was done fairly quickly.
Nice flight, not bad food only 3 hrs, 15mins.
Lovely and sunny in Auckland.
Found the Super Shuttle after asking a couple of people and had a good journey to our hotel.
We were on the 4th floor and room was very nice. Outlook wasn’t too good. But in the centre of the City unless you are really high up, at a premium cost, you won’t see much. Suited us for 2 nights.
After a freshen up we walked to the harbour area. Lots of huge posh cruise craft there. Nice meal, need to find the bill to remember the name, it there are lots to choose from.
