Wellington, Nov 6 NZPA - Air New Zealand is promoting its airfares by taking the mickey out of two MPs who are in the headlines for their travel perks.

Air New Zealand is suggesting customers could take up their "Los Angeles fares with nothing to Hide", while portraying ACT leader Rodney Hide wearing a mickey mouse hat.

Mr Hide has been in the news for using his parliamentary air travel perks to take his girlfriend on a fact-funding trip to London, where he attended her brother's wedding.

After this the couple travelled to North America and included a visit to a theme park in Los Angeles.

Air NZ is also promoting "Sprung in Paris specials" with a picture of Maori Party MP Hone Harawira wearing a jaunty French beret.

Mr Harawira is in hot water after he lashed out at white people over criticism that he bunked off a work trip in Brussels to visit Paris with his wife.

The cheapest business class fares available with Air NZ to the destinations were $10,625 to Paris return and $9083 to Los Angeles.
