Air NZ is clearly targeting anyone who missed out on Cathay's giveaway with this deal. Return for $1,323 available. Pretty decent for a direct flight given its normally about 800-900 one way these days.
Pretty cheap way to get into Asia with a full service carrier as you can then get to destinations like Bangkok or Manila from HKG for about $100 one way.
