Fare Alert LAX-AKL Auckland, Air New Zealand $875, LAX-SYD Sydney $1,023 sale ends April 2

Fare Alert LAX-AKL Auckland, New Zealand is discounted to $875, perhaps a little lower for some dates during Air New Zealand’s 75th Anniversary 3-day sale ending 11:59pm Thursday, April 2 Pacific time.

Yesterday I wrote a piece analyzing airfare between LAX and SFO to Australia and New Zealand.

Loyalty Traveler – What is a low airfare for LAX and SFO to Australia? (March 31)

My conclusion was anytime there is a fare for under $1,000 to Australia or New Zealand, then that is a good deal.

Reader Joey left a comment mentioning the 3-day sale on Air New Zealand with airfare at $854. Today, I found many dates with $875 all-in for LAX-AKL.
