International planes still flying into New Zealand ...WHY??πŸ›«πŸ›¬

Fiona from Henderson

Would someone out there be able to tell me why are we (New Zealand) still allowing planes from China, Malaysia, Hong Hong, Honolulu, Santiago, Doha & even Fiji to land here in this lockdown?
I thought that the extended timeframe for these airlines was last Friday.
It is still happening daily.
Before anyone says it's only Air New Zealand flying anywhere or even maybe they are cargo flights, they're not.
The various airlines flying in or out are:
China Eastern Airlines
China Southern Airlines
Shanghai Airlines
Malaysia Airlines
Fiji Airways
Polynesian
Cathay Pacific
LATAM Airlines
Qatar Airways
Qantas
I do know that Swiss Air and Lufthansa (along with Austrian Airlines later in the week) are here for a 'mercy dash' to remove their citizens via Auckland & Christchurch, so they don't count.

Media, broadcasting.

David from Glen Eden

Every so often the issue of political party funding crops up. Various accusations are made and political parties seem to take turns at violating the rules governing donations. Over a recent few months I have taken to listening to radio talk back instead of music and concert programmes. So called "radio magic" is the one I would take issue with. It is not a "news" media really. It comes across to me as primarily an anti government platform with quite clever but very mischievous talk back hosts. (With one exception of Tony Amos). If any government had to pay for such expert wide coverage advertising and anti government bias they'd be up for millions of dollars. They simply couldn't afford it. Perhaps it has much to do with the fact that major share holders are American. Afternoon broadcasts are also laced with bad language, swearing, and not a good example to young listeners and if nothing else that should stop.
