Had a sudden situation arise late last night where I had to get some stuff up to Auckland CBD by 8 am. Also had an very important 10.30 am meeting in Wellington.
The only solution was I caught the 0630 flight to Auckland, had someone grab the stuff off me at the airport and then caught the 0830 flight back to Wellington.
That’s a first for me – not even making it outside before returning home.
The Air NZ staff were puzzled to see me flying back an hour after I landed. They were like “Didn’t you just get here”.
Is a very weird feeling to have flown to Auckland and back, and the time is yet to reach 10 am.
The big irony is I am flying up to Auckland again tomorrow morning for three days. Any increase in Air NZ’s profit this year will be partly due to me!
