Back to NZ. Cathay Pacific to Auckland in business

Transiting through Hong Kong from Bangkok all on a last minute whim. I would be going to New Zealand overnight on Cathay Pacific’s flagship business class product on the Boeing 777-300ER. The flight time is a surprisingly long 12 hours down to Auckland. A long overnight flight with this product...
