Join the Air New Zealand Matchmaking Flight and Travel like a Bachelorette

Forget spring – that’s not when a young man’s fancy turns to love. It’s fall. This fall. For those obsessed with the Bachelor and Bachelorette TV show, um, like me, now’s your chance to get off the couch and live it for yourself. Air New Zealand has come up with a a matchmaking flight from LA to Aukland on Oct 13, and Jason Mesnick and his second-choice first-choice girlfriend, Molly, will be joining the trip. (Personally, I thought previous winner Andrew Firestone was cuter but that’s beside the point.) The point is that you, too, can sign up and scheme and plot and flirt to get close to your eligible woman/man of choice. You can even go online to plan your strategy beforehand.

The sad thing was that I was invited to cover the trip, but due to editorial considerations I had to turn it down. Whaa!

For those who might want to fly high, here’s the dirt straight from the airline. It’s not even that expensive:

The adventure begins with a send-off party at the departure gate at LAX on October 13. At 30,000 feet passengers can expect matchmaking advice from ABC’s The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick and girlfriend Molly Malaney, complimentary party packs, an open bar, speed dating and other games, before it’s lights out for a full eight hours of beauty sleep.
Once on the ground in Auckland, passengers and local single New Zealanders are invited to enjoy an international singles-only event, with the opportunity to meet their partner, and/or create lasting friendships within the crowd.
The airborne search for has already begun, with Air New Zealand encouraging those interested in the flight to upload a profile and start connecting at Please feel free to take a look and upload your own profile, or a friend’s if you think they need some help!

Bon voyage!
