My flight *from* PPT to AKL was delayed by a couple hours due to a delayed LAX PPT flight.

Was more than 45 mins for us. Probably closer to 60. And that's just passport control. Not getting bags, going to VT desk, checking in, going through (light)  security etc.

We were actually out by the TAXI with our bags by 6:45 (yet still missed our 7:15am ferry to Moorea due to heavy traffic) but obviously it's possible it will take longer

My flight *from* PPT to AKL was delayed by a couple hours due to a delayed LAX PPT flight.

when dealing with LAX one should always account for delays. so far I'm 2 for 2 in last 6 months and hope to avoid that airport in the future as much as possible

Has anyone done BOB via AUS or NZ? I'll probably be coming from NZ after being there for around 8-9 days, concerned about how to bring food to BOB and where to get it from.

Don't think I can bring enough food from SYD for 9 days NZ and a week of BOB, or is there enough kosher food to be found...

Do they have a decent variety, and are the meals any good?

If you can book a that price, do it ASAP and don't complain!

Anyone want buy a resort?

For $50M it's quite an investment. Though once you buy no need to worry about points availability anymore..
