Does anyone out there know if there are any reasonably priced flights from South Africa to New Zealand? So far I have been unable to find a flight costing less than an arm and a leg.

South Africa to Australia is one if not the longest plane flight on the planet-it will never be less than expensive.

hello, i hope you have managed to find a ticket by now.
i flew Cape Town to Auckland in July this year through Malaysia airlines, with a couple of stops and a long wait in Malaysia but it wasnt too bad when considering the flight was to Auckland. I am flying there again in a few weeks, going on Emirates, with a few stops again. this trip is going to be much longer, with the flight from Dubai to Auckland being 20hours. but it was the best price i could get R13 000. it is definitely far cheaper to buy way in advance and during winter when its off season. i also know that flying through Singapore Airlines is also a relatively resonable way to get there.
good luck
