Air New Zealand was one of those airlines that didn’t want to refund passengers for flights they canceled and offered credits instead, which, IMHO, is criminal.
I am glad that they have decided to give affected passengers more time to use these credits, which must come in handy for those that don’t live in New Zealand.
You may have, however, trouble getting through to the airline, as their phone lines are mostly busy, and replies to Twitter DMs take days.
