2012 Flight Purchased: to Sydney, AU via Auckland, NZ

Last Friday I had received approval for my vacation time off for the month of September. With this last step in place it was time to take the next step; purchase the airline tickets.

I researched my options well enough. It seemed clear that the best deal was going to be a non-American carrier (ie: Qantas or Air New Zealand). Their planes had inflight entertainment, their crews were more friendly, their services seemed to be much better over all. The only down side, would be not earning a full complement of frequent flyer miles. I probably can live with this ... though it is somewhat painful to think about.
