Exceptional Value: Auckland-Sydney return in LATAM Business Class for $698!

With return flights in full-service Economy Class in July pricing around $400-560, flying in a flat-bed Business Class seat on a LATAM 787 Dreamliner for less than double the price is a steal!

The Business Class configuration is 2-2-2, so not direct aisle access for everybody, but should not be a big problem for a short flight (3 hours 40 mins to Sydney, 3 hours 20 mins back to Auckland).
