Early morning trip to Milford Sound
Thought for the day…”He who angers you, conquers you”.
“We all have the ability. The difference is how we use it”.
I have just had another flight (unfortunately) with Air New Zealand. I say unfortunately because what was once a quality airline has turned into a money-grabbing budget airline which pretends to be a quality airline. Do AirNZ really think that I am going to pay NZD 10 to choose my seat, when they have to give me a seat anyway? Do AirNZ really think that I am going to PAY NZD10 to watch a movie onboard?? Whilst they might have put a credit card slot in the seatback for me to pay, it is going to remain unused. And having tasted the food offering (laughing called ‘The Works” on the outward journey, then I am sure that I will not be paying for the small portion of food that was offered. I moved on from eating child portions a long time ago but apparently AirNZ thinks that I still do eat child portions, even when I paid for an ADULT portion. And a wait of over 1 hour and 20 minutes to get even a cup of coffee is not going to make me happy either, especially as it was the usual airline sized 1/2 cup.
But the saddest part is to think back to how AirNZ used to be. Once they WERE good, and once it was a pleasure to fly with them. Times change.
Milford Sound is one of the most popular fjords that tourists visit in New Zealand. Here is an early morning photo from the road which leads into Milford Sound. Unusually, the weather is great in the photo. Milford Sound is infamous for getting over 7 metres of rain a year…..so days like this are rare. This photo is taken just before the entrance to the famous Homer Tunnel, which leads down to Milford Sound.
And another photo from the archives….Haglebu, Norway
