Don’t bother trying to book an airline flight online. In the last year, I’ve had airline websites make these impossible bookings. For instance, I’m off to the Cook Islands this week and Air New Zealand had me staying in LA overnight and taking three days to get to Rarotonga.
If you phone, it’s still going to take forever, but the nice man at Air New Zealand eventually got me a much more civilized flight.
Civilized means I don’t have to spend a day in Auckland.
