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.

    Tourism gold dust!

  • Steve (North Shore)

    Phark, the Liarbour troughers are spewing

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Celebrity tax any one?

      • Steve (North Shore)

        Ask Lucy and Robyn if they pay Celebrity TAX?
        Oh they are not Celebrities?

        • pukakidon

          Two liarbour leeches like that wont have money in New Zealand accounts subject to tax. Like the Liarbour MPs they will all have it stashed in overseas accounts to avoid letting the poor people of New Zealand gaining any benefit from their taxable income.

  • Mark Pandelidis

    its a shame Travolta is still a nutcase, but oh well.

    • Orange

      He’ll fit right in! :D

  • GazzW

    Wait for the labour rhetoric about JK’s rich prick mates from Hollywood.

  • RightOfGenghis

    This is a good news story! Everyone’s a winner. Well almost…

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Sir Whale – Your loyal army keeps attacking me for my comments that tourists are flocking to NZ to see sheep. Now see, even the celebrities are coming here to see sheep. So ask your army to back off…But remember, don’t ever ask me which sheep though…..

    • Dave

      If you cant stand the heat SCS, get out of the Kitchen, that, or come help sharpen the knives, its a tough old piece of mutton the menu at the moment. Might need a few others to help prepare a Hang.. er, um, a hangi.

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        I will be defending the Sheep with double the vigour now. TV3 poll is going to keep all of you zipped tight. Can’t wait for Sunday night…

        • Dave

          As I said previously SCS, about the TV3 Poll, does that mean Campbell will question himself 1000 times, and declare the results are a 1000% swing to Labour? Bout the only way they can pull it off.

          • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

            Dave – You need to be patient until the TV3 poll comes out on Sunday. I understand from Labour inner circles that it will show further drop in National’s popularity and John Key as PM. Remember, the last TV3 poll showed drop in National party support? Paddy Gower will then be summarising to say that the country is ready for a change of government under the leadership of Sheep.

          • Dave

            BREAKING over here. Bill Shorten, a loyal Gillard supporter has just announced he is switching to back Rubb. As a “union” man, he will likely pull other MP’s with him. Have to be honest, as a labour and union man I don’t rate him, but he spoke very very well.

  • Agent BallSack

    Letterman seems intrigued by NZ, he has a fair few kiwis on his show and points out whenever Kiwis are in the audience.

  • PlanetOrphan

    May they have a safe and trouble free flight, welcome to New-Zealand :-))

  • cows4me

    Perhaps Letterman has finally had a guts full of Obummer and is on the first plane he can get on before the damn fool shuts down air travel in his bid to save the world.

  • Dave

    Wonder if Travolta will fly his own Qantas plane over, no doubt he is coming to check out NZ for a new Film, and will want to meet with Key.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    Travolta is coming here to buy a bridge and take it away, so Len can force us to use trains all over Auckland.
    “Better Wake Up”

  • Jimmie

    Letterman better keep his belt fastened on the trip over.

    • Troy

      He’d better keep something else fastened if the hollywood gossipers have it right.
