Help : NZ domestic airfare
Just wondering if anyone ever purchased NZ domestic air tickets before.
The price difference is huge when you try different country sites of Air NZ.
http://www.airnewzealand.com.sg/ "Sg site" about $400-500
http://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/ "Nz site" about $150-$200
If I buy direct from NZ site, would there be a problem?
I was hoping to fly into Auckland on Royal Brunei or something cheap, then fly air newzealand to my destination in the South.
all helpful tips are welcome. Thanks.

I bought nz domestic before, but I did it while I was in NZ itself so I walk into a office instead of doing it online.
My guess is that if you do it at nz site, you have to collect your ticket at NZ, if you book from sg then collect from Singapore.
You may want to check local tour agent to see if they have even better price.
Also try priceline.com

Not sure how Air New Zealand does it, but Quantas issues an "e-ticket" (via email) for online booking, with your particulars and a unique number. You print this out and it serves as your ticket. This is for a domestic flight in Australia.
At least, I HOPE that's how it works. It'll be an interesting trip if not. Will let you know when I come back.

thanks to everyone who contributed.
Looks like i can save $100-200 by flying to Auckland first and then buying a domestic separately, rather than flying air new zealand all the way. Of course there is a danger of missing connections and stuff ... have to weight my options, and also availability.
btw, the air nz webby says they are expecting the busiest summer ever at auckland international airport.

shucks! I tried the domestic booking and at payment details, they asked for country of residence. Rejected me when I keyed singapore.
