Via View From the Wing, there are several non-stop, round-trip Business Class award seats on United Airlines flights between San Francisco to Auckland in July and August 2017.
These seats are usually difficult to find. So this is great news if you’ve been wanting to explore the Southern Hemisphere or Pacific Islands!
In many cases, there are 4 or more award seats available on the same flight. This means you can bring family or friends along for a trip to New Zealand!
I’ll show you how you can book these flights!

Available Business Class award seats from San Francisco to New Zealand are on United Airlines. Depending on what kind of miles you collect, you can book these flights through Star Alliance partner airlines.

If you need more United Airlines miles, you can instantly transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio.
And for Air Canada Aeroplan miles, you can instantly transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio.
Avianca is expected to launch a new credit card soon that will offer a 60,000-mile sign-up bonus! But if you already have enough miles, you can book a seat now.
