    Good mix of cultures, races and gender in there as well as some well known personalities. Be very hard for anyone to be offended by that other than me. I take exception because the dog they used was ugly...should have gone to spec savers and used a Beagle

    Would be even better if they could eject Mike and Kate mid flight.

    Pretty pathetic ad in my opinion (starts with some of our stunning scenery only to be snuffed out with poor content and acting) .........Sea Legs are probably the only winner with that one.
    Have a Gr8day.

    Probably somebody responsible to determine the route who is not familiar with global politics ...

    Black Peter (who is always learning).

    Overflying Iran from Asia to Europe is the most popular route for airlines, generally the quickest and safest for most routes. Air NZ only flys to Europe via USA but the relatively limited range of the A321 means that the Asia route is more convenient. However, Iran closes down on Fridays so business is usually only done Sat-Thurs, so that might have been a factor as well.
    If you want avoid Iran try overflying Syria, Aghanistan, Russia, Ukraine, Iraq and see what the cost and safety factors are. You can't overfly Israel so forget that.
    Have a look at https://ops.group/blog/tag/overflight/ and you will see why problems can easily arise trying to route aircraft on unfamiliar routes.

    Well, looks like the convenience of not flying West did pay out for them - didn't it? As well - given this was a one off - what would have been wrong with Egypt - Saudi Arabia? Anyway - it happened, and maybe they learn at some stage to check before take off whether they have all required permits and the paperwork done. Can't be that hard if you are running an airline.

    At least the AIR delivery crew weren’t as bored as this pilot in Oz
