- Spend A$200 + 25,000 AAdvantage miles to get to New Zealand for Labour Day weekend
- Spend A$100 + 30,000 Mileage Plus miles to get to NZ on business class for LDW
- Spend A$1,200 to go to Vanuatu for the weekend (uh, no)
- Futz around with the immigration office to try to get an extension
- Spend A$600 to get to Auckland for the weekend on Thai (maybe; no one can tell me whether or not this is really doable)
So I'm guessing it's option 2 for now. I'll probably go get the tickets tomorrow morning and start driving like mad for Sydney - have to be at the airport by 10 AM Thursday for the flight out. Yeowch!
