Air NZ has had the nigh rider fares out for some time at $29 NZ one way from WLG/NZPM also AKL/CHC these operate after 10pm at night with no in flight meals. anz also have a happy hour sale on the web site daily at 11pm NZEST for a hour. Some fare go as low as $20NZ on certain routes. As for JETSAR/QANTAS they know they cannot compete with these fares but love making a big issue out of it with the MEdia here in NZ and in Australia.
