God, I love Air New Zealand. Their Premium Economy is better than many other airlines’ business classes, they have friendly flight attendants and great New Zealand wine, and their in-flight videos are always hilarious, adorable, and actually worth watching.
They’ve just released their newest in-flight video, starring Elijah Wood and Sir Peter Jackson, a couple of months before the third The Hobbit film hits theaters December 17. It features scenes from Hobbiton, the AJ Hackett Bungy in Queenstown (the world’s first!), Wellington Airport (gotta love that giant Gollum) and other Kiwi favorites.
Cute, no? I’ve said it a million times, but you really need to make a New Zealand trip happen. It’s the most wonderful place on the planet.
