And Labour attacked the PM for appearing on Letterman…

The Labour party scoffed when John Key appeared on Letterman…and now it looks like it is paying off because David Letterman wants to come to New Zealand…with John Travolta.

What do you do if you get to hang out with a pilot who owns a fleet of private jets?

You ask them if they could give you a lift to the furthest away country you can think of.

When US talk show host David Letterman had actor John Travolta in his studio, he casually inquired for a ride to New Zealand.

During the Late Show interview, Travolta not only agreed to give him a lift he also offered to wine and dine Letterman all the way to Godzone on one of his planes.  

The actor reportedly has a fleet of jets he captains himself, including a Boeing 707, and lives next to a runway.

Letterman said he was trying to get to New Zealand, when Travolta said: “Want a ride?

“I adore you, and if you need a ride to New Zealand, I will give you a ride.”

Travolta said he had offered another friend a fine meal service, starting with a martini, followed by dinner and a bottle of wine, and even put him to bed in his own part of the plane.

“I will do the same for you. I will wine and dine you all the way to New Zealand, if you so choose.”

Letterman has picked Travolta’s Challenger 601 aircraft for the flight.
