Cheaper Airline Travel – but at a cost?

September 14th 2010

Being “down-under” at the other end of the world means one thing.

To get anyway far away, for a Kiwi….it’s always very costly. But hey…..we are no stranger to the concept. Our own award winning Air New Zealand are constantly world leading in new seating/sleeping concepts for long haul.

This may not be the way to do it……but could it also be the way to alleviate the expense on say a short haul Tasman Sea flight.

I’ve seen the double decker sandwich style that Mr Branson liked, and others like those favoured by Michael O’Leary….but this style…….it might just get some traction? One way or the other, my suspicion is that I don’t think we’ve heard the last of this type of idea?

Could high density seating be a goodbye to 31 inches of legroom?

David…..but how does this relate to Nelson Real Estate?

Frankly it definitely does relate to Nelson Real Estate……it not only relates to peoples from afar having easy/cheap/convenient access to NZ, but just as importantly those who may desire a more regular travel frequency. Or just as equally, trans-tasman work commute opportunities.

That being the visitation to/from them of family or friends from those afar places. In any case where this travel cost is substantially reduced,  then I see merits from a real estate perspective. Basically the concept I am trying to get across is the well known to property investors one called the “ripple effect”…..but in this case its across oceans.
