How far are you willing to go to find a perfect mate? Air New Zealand is betting that several hundred travelers will be on board for its first ever Matching Making Flight that departs Los Angeles on October 13, 2009. Adventurous singles who purchase roundtrip tickets on The Match Making Flight will be treated to a pre-boarding party at the LAX gate, in-flight food, drinks, entertainment and games, and tickets to a grand Match Making Ball in Auckland, New Zealand on October 17th. The ball will be attended by Air New Zealand passengers as well as local Kiwis (as New Zealanders call themselves). It’s bound to be an hysterical journey!
Roundtrip airfare starts at $780, and well priced packages are available for hotel stays in Auckland. In anticipation of the buzz and curiosity about this new concept in blind dating, a social networking site has been created at TheMatchMakingFlight.com – check it out for all the romantic details.
This promises to be the most blind dating fun Downunder since the Aussie favorite “Desperate and Dateless Ball” ended last year! And if you’re wondering just how cheeky the Kiwis are – you’ve got to see their filming of the “Nothing To Hide” video ad.
