Air New Zealand is once again poking fun at rival airlines with a facebook post jibing airline Jetstar for its claims to be “New Zealand’s most punctual airline”.
Air New Zealand has posted an image of a Jetstar plane with an elongated nose reminiscent of Pinocchio underneath Jetstar's claim with the words 'When is it OK to be fashionably late?' #HardlyEverActually#NotWhenYoureTravelling.
This isn’t the first time the national carrier has engaged in social media trolling of its competitors, in the midst of heightened jingoism during the Rugby World Cup Air New Zealand convinced Qantas to place a bet on the outcome of the final. Qantas subsequently lost the bet when the All Blacks were comfortable victors over the Wallabies but showing what good sports they are, the Qantas flight staff donned All Black jerseys.
More recently, Kiwi airline poked fun at Qantas and American Airlines with the help of some ridiculous auto-tuning.
