HAPPY TALK: Love is in the air

Air New Zealand has announced the world’s first matchmaking flight. 

The target audience is  American singles looking to find a date amongst soft spoken Kiwis. 

On 13 October 2009, a 'plane load of the non-attached will be invited to come on down from Los Angeles and get amongst it with single New Zealanders.  Flight passengers will enjoy a pre-flight gate party at LAX and then themed food, drink, entertainment and games throughout the trip.  Waiting for them at the other end will be a fabulous, singles-only party and accommodation at the five-star Skycity Grand Hotel right in the centre of Auckland.

The mind boggles.  Virgin must be kicking themselves that they did not come up with the idea first.  To Australia of course!
