So what is it. Still lots of people still coming in (there's really not since Sunday), or none will because its too expensive and no flights (have been pointing that out)? Can't claim it both ways.
I don't know if the government has any plans to get them back if they can't afford to, or charter planes if they aren't flying.
It looks like they are also concerned that the 600,000 NZers currently living in Australia may try to come back, as the PM has said they should remain in Australia.
a big change of tone from W Peters (assuming they maintain communication with each other)
