I’m a big fan of Grabaseat deals, although I’ve still never managed to snag myself a $1 fare. The cheapest I got was a $18 fare to Hamilton which I needed to get enough status points to qualify for Air New Zealand Silver frequent flyer status. Normally grabaseat deals are the cheapest flights you can get either domestically or internationally. Not always though. Apparently sometimes you’re better off not taking the grabaseat deal:
My flight was scheduled for 9: 45am. It was still dark at 6am but it didn't look like there had been any further snowfall, and it wasn't snowing anymore. Once it got a bit lighter, we could see that there was a couple of inches of snow, and they sent out a fire engine with a snowplow attachment to start clearing it.
