I'm currently looking at flights to New Zealand via Tokyo where I intend to do stop-overs on the way there and back.
Current best option by far is Austrian Airlines to Tokyo via Vienna. However the flight only has a transfer time of 45 mins (all booked on one ticket) at Vienna airport which leaves very little room - having never been to Vienna airport or flown with Austrian Airlines I don't know whether this is likely to be an issue?
There is an alternative earlier flight to Vienna but unfortunately it's at 6am which means no sleep, an expensive transfer to the airport and a 4 hour wait at Vienna which significantly lengthens the flight. So no a very attractive alternative all round!
Any thoughts appreciated.
PS Only one flight a day Vienna - Tokyo so if I miss it I lose a day of hols......
