Air NZ is dropping the seat-only option on some international routes

Air New Zealand is removing the seat-only ticket option on its Tahiti, Perth and Honolulu services.

The airline says around 5% of customers purchase a seat-only fare on these routes.

From Thursday, passengers to Perth and Tahiti will no longer be able to purchase a seat and carry-on only ticket.

Instead, economy class passengers will be streamlined to The Works – which includes a meal and checked baggage.

Starting Oct. 30, flights from Honolulu will also no longer have a carry-on only option.

The airline will offer economy, premium economy and business offers – which it offers on its other North American routes.

“The majority of our customers on these services are already buying The Works, with only 5% of customers only buying a seat ticket,” said Air New Zealand’s Jeremy O’Brien.

“Ensuring everyone can enjoy a meal from our delicious new menu gives an overall better onboard experience and streamlines the process for our crew and customers.

“As for Honolulu, moving this service to our long-haul offering aligns it with our other North American destinations so customers can now choose between economy, premium economy and business class on those flights.”
