Re: Flying to New Zealand - Advice on connections

I've done Zürich to Auckland many times. My favourite is Singapore airlines.

From Zürich there are two flights a day. I prefer the evening one as the connections mean that you get to Auckland in the middle of the day. I find that this helps me to get over the jet lag much more quickly. If I take the midday flight out of Zürich then I get to Auckland at midnight and it usually takes until 04:00 to get to sleep on that first night.

Unfortunately, they will be replacing the two flights a day with a single A380 out of Zürich later this month. Can't wait to fly on the thing but the flight time will be the midday option. So it looks as though the jet lag will take longer to get over the next time I fly out there.

Enjoy the trip, it's a great place.
