But the airline companies don't want it to happen like this. I was planning to fly from Wellington to Melbourne on 24 May, attend the MEDC 2006 25 May, flying to Singapore 26 May at 1am. My fligh back would be on 28 May, Singapore to Wellington with a stop in Auckland.
But Air New Zealand can't issue tickets from Melbourne to Singapore, even though these are on a Star Alliance airline partner, Singapore Airlines. Their suggestion was to purchase Wellington to Melbourne one-way on Air New Zealand, Melbourne to Singapore one-way on Singapore Airlines, and Singapore to Wellington one-way on Air New Zealand. Yeah, right...
The total cost for this would be 100% over my budget for the air part of this trip.
A cheaper option would be to get a return ticket Wellington to Melbourne, and a return ticket from Melbourne to Singapore. It would add a stop in Melbourne on the way back though plus the accommodation costs there.
I think I will have to leave the MEDC 2006 out of my plans this year. Shame...
