Not even Day One


Preparations have gone well, but on day 0 (if tomorrow is day 1), we’ve already hit a snag. Some of us booked tickets with check-in luggage, and others didn’t, figuring that none of us would take more than about half the baggage limit anyway. I’m catching a flight tonight, so I sent my bag along with the main group who are about to fly out. I just got a message to say that Air New Zealand have a one-bag limit, regardless of weight.

My $30 no-checkin-luggage saving just cost me $75 in excess baggage fees.

On the upside, it wasn’t our airline that went into administration this morning, as far as I know they haven’t sacked 500 engineers this week. Any by all reports, Christchurch is still there.

Bring it on!
