“Too much time was spent getting to airports and associated travel.
There was too much fast walking for an older person not in top shape. My older sister had wanted to go along. It would have killed her. There were 10 people on the same return flights (Queenstown to Auckland to LA) one was called and told that there was not enough time for the connection at Auckland. The other 9 had to jog and hustle to get from the one terminal to the other. We arrived at the LA flight just as it was boarding!! The going to flights connecting in Sydney was a real mystery on how to get from international to domestic flights.”
