Air NZ warns of free flight scam

It takes more than a short survey to get free tickets on an Air NZ flight.

Air New Zealand is warning the public not to respond to an online scam which claims to be giving out free flights.

A website, bearing the airline's logo, is being shared online, asking people to fill out a survey in exchange for two free tickets.

"Congratulations! You have been selected to take part in our short survey to get 2 Free Air New Zealand Tickets," the message reads.

"We only have 120 Tickets remaining so hurry up!"

It goes on to ask for the participant's personal details.

Air New Zealand has posted a statement on Facebook, saying the message is not legitimate and people should ignore it.

"This message is not from Air New Zealand and we advise anyone who receives this, not to engage."

Several customers have responded to the post, saying they'd already been sucked in.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
