"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YYC." - Chris Myden

Calgary to Auckland, New Zealand - $763 after tax return

Yes, it can be done, at least theoretically. Air New Zealand has an amazing deal to Auckland going on right now out of Los Angeles and San Francisco. Return flights are less than $500 after tax for the end of May, beginning of June.

At the same time, Air Canada has flights from Calgary to Los Angeles and back for $267, return, after tax. There are also flights to San Francisco and back for $256.

Put the two together, and you have one heckuva deal to New Zealand. An example trip could be this:

Flight 1: Air Canada, Calgary to Los Angeles, May 24 to June 5 - $267 after tax

Flight 2: Air New Zealand, Los Angeles to Auckland, May 25 to June 4 - $507 after tax

So your trip would look like this....

May 24: Calgary to Los Angeles, direct, arriving at 9:47 PM. The Air New Zealand flight leaves at 9 PM the next day, so you could spend some time in Los Angeles.

May 25: Air New Zealand, direct to Auckland, arriving early morning 27th (big time change!)

June 4: Air New Zealand, direct back to Los Angeles, arriving at 2:30 PM

June 5: early morning flight back to Calgary, 54 minute stopover in Denver.

Of course, there are other ways you could work this, with more or less time in L.A (or in San Francisco). Los Angeles seems to have more of the cheap flights to Auckland than San Francisco.

The Air New Zealand flights can be found at http://www.AirNewZealand.com You may have to click on 'Worldwide Sites' at the top and change the country to United States. Otherwise, it might try to redirect you to the Canadian site, which won't have Los Angeles as a departing airport.
