Couple Vacation to New Plymouth

We are a couple from Wellington, New Zealand. We had planned to have our vacation in New Plymouth and enjoy the outdoor activities in fall. We flew from Wellington to New Plymouth using Virgin Australia and they offered a relatively cheaper ticket compared to other airlines. We booked our ticket six weeks before our flight, a friend had suggested that tickets are cheap six weeks before the travel date. Jetstar offered 10% off their ticket but Virgin Australia still had cheaper tickets. An amazing travel experience with exceptionally friendly flight attendants who upgraded our flight tickets to first class after noticing that we were couples from the names on the ticket.
