Updates. Air New Zealand responds. See comments.
It really stuck in my craw to have to refresh the Watoday site several times to copy this ad, especially since it probably represented most of their hits for the year, but this shall not stand! This is misrepresentation from Air New Zealand. They seem to be implying that they don’t have Great White shark attacks in New Zealand, however from From the encyclopaedia of NZ te Ara comes this…
“New Zealand has a relatively high incidence of shark attacks. (High, mind you, TLA)
Great white sharks have been responsible for most of the 11 fatal attacks in New Zealand where the shark has been identified. ”
So their great whites actually look like man eating monsters rather than glasses of wine. If you were an Aussie tourist who went for a dip and was mauled, you’d be spewing. I have contacted the airline to have this corrected.
OK, I might have to concede the snakes and crocs.
