KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to New Zealand.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to New Zealand is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to New Zealand with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to New Zealand up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.

I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options.

Pros: "I'm embarassed to admit that while I was sitting near my gate the whole plane boarded without my knowing. I thought people were only boarding the plane next to it. So when I finally went up to the desk to ask, the lady looked at me and said that all of the boarding was finished and I was too late. She quickly pulled up the rest of my itinerary on the screen and immediately started re-booking my short domestic flight to the next plane. I didn't have to argue, beg, plead or pay anything. I'm supremely grateful!"
