Air New Zealand has a bit of fun at the expense of the New Zealand accent. As a world traveller there is something magical about getting back on board an Air New Zealand plane and hearing the Kiwi accent again. But, yes, I get it that our accent is hard to understand.
My standard practice when talking to Americans, for example, is to say that my name is “Michael Saaaampson, no relation to Bart” in order to avoid it being heard as “Michael Simpson.”
