The Panel with Susan Hornsby-Geluk and John Barnett (Part 1)
Topics - Air New Zealand has axed regional flights to Kaitaia, Whakatane and Westport and is shutting down Eagle Airways. A new charge laid against Phillip John Smith - escaping the custody of Corrections. The Prime Minister's apologised for his flippant comments yesterday. A ministerial inquiry may be held into how Smith was able to flee the country. The latest from Eminem: 'I'll punch Lana Del Rey in the face'. He says it freestyling on stage, and he also goes further than a punch in the face in saying what he would do to Lana del Ray, who actually is a fan of Eminem.
