NRL: Air New Zealand says extra flights 'unlikely' for Warriors fans hoping to travel to Brisbane

The Warriors are one win away from an NRL Grand Final, after making it into the final four thanks to Saturday's 40-10 victory over the Newcastle Knights.

But the 'Up the Wahs' bandwagon faces a bump in the road, getting fans across the ditch for the preliminary final in Brisbane next Saturday, when a win will see the Warriors advance to their first Grand Final since 2011.  

But if you haven't got a plane ticket, it might be too late. While the squad have their flights booked, the trip isn't guaranteed for fans. 

School holidays on both sides of the Tasman mean most seats were already booked before the Warriors won.

Air New Zealand told Newshub hundreds more tickets have since been bought, and adding any additional capacity is incredibly difficult and unlikely.

One NZ chief executive Jason Paris says they're trying to make zones acrss the country available for fans to come and watch the match next weekend.

Over 5,000 people attended the 'Wahs under the stars' event at Eden Park last weekend.  

But the later kickoff time of 9:45pm for the clash with Brisbane next means they're unlikely to reprise the occasion for next Saturday due to the local noise restriction policy.
