What I Packed for L.A.

Posted · 16 Comments

Here’s what was in my suitcase when I went to LA recently – it took me bloody ages to get everything neatly aligned for this picture! This little feature was for www.iampacked.com which is the blog for Air New Zealand. I flew out in Business and back in Premium Economy, and I have to say that their Premium Economy is a good few notches above any of the other “premium” cabins that I’ve flown in. Massive seats, brilliant in-seat entertainment and food ordering system, lots of levers to pull and buttons to press. Obviously business class was amazing – business class always is; flat bed, champagne dinner, pipe and slippers and all that jazz – but the Premium Economy stood out as being exceptionally good value for money. I might start “marking” my flights out of ten and posting the results for all to see – like a Which guide to flying!

If you want to see the feature in full with a nice large photograph, click through to the blog – link is below. I spent ages on there nosing into people’s cases, it’s quite addictive!

    I Love Love Love Air New Zealand and I’ve sat in all the classes. It is great airline. The last couple of time of time I flew economy, i’m 5’3″ so I don’t need the leg room and I sleep on planes. The service and attention to detail was great as if i were in 1st class. I need to learn how to pack!! I always pack way too much

    Everyone else has just selected a few ubertrendy items and arranged them in a haute-designer way. But you’ve shown everything you *actually* packed. Love a gal who follows the remit.
