Regular readers of Newshub Travel will be familiar with Gus Dolding and his poem to Norwegian Airlines complaining about their service.

Poetry was used again today by someone more familiar with politics: Newshub's Lloyd Burr.

The soon-to-be Europe Correspondent tweeted Air New Zealand, asking them for a few extra points so he could achieve gold elite before heading to London.

Although the airline said it was a fan of the tweet, it turned down his request for airpoints - tweeting a poem of its own.

There was a level of cheekiness from Burr, there's no disputin'

One Twitter user even sent him a meme of Vladimir Putin.
