The skies were Mike Kitching's livelihood for 18 years, before he was made redundant alongside thousands of other Air New Zealand staff.
But now he's quite literally putting his career on ice, by pivoting his way into a new business venture as an ice cream shop owner.
Newshub’s Wilhelmina Shrimpton speaks to him about how he grieved the end of his cabin crew job, and where he found the inspiration to open Scrunchy Millers on Auckland's North Shore. He even gives us a cheeky taste test as well!
