My fiancee and I will be honeymooning in New Zealand in December, round trip Seattle to Auckland. We were planning on booking Air New Zealand but just found out that Hawaiian Air is offering flights starting in March. Which airline would you choose?
Hawaiian Air is about $375 cheaper each way, so we'd save $1400, but we'd miss out on the "International flight" experience. A stop in Honolulu vs. LA means we're on two shorter 767/A330 trips vs the longer 777. Our thought is the $1400 is worth the "upgrade", but we haven't flown either airline or plane.
