Hi all,

Who is going to be the first to have a photo of the first Air New Zealand Airbus A320 on A.net? It is due to enter service in September 2003. Does anyone know if it is flying yet?

Thanks Spotterboy.

The simulator has been commissioned at Auckland airport and a number of pilots have been through the course and eager to get their hands on the real thing. I look forward to seeing the first shots and they will inevitable be from Europe first.  Smile

June 20, the forward and aft sections of the A320 that will become ZK-OJA were joined together, followed last week by the installation of the undercarriage and wings.

OJA is expected to be delivered on schedule in early September. ZK-OJB will follow soon after.

First 'official' revenue service is scheduled to be NZ101 AKLSYD, departing at 0700, arriving 0830 on 26 October, although the aircraft will be used on other flights (familiarisation, testing flights, maybe even filling in for u/s aircraft).

Just to note, ZK-OJA was scheduled to make her first flight today, in Toulouse  Smile
