I the the demise was the 762 first was always the plan, as they are the oldest aircraft in the Air New Zealand fleet (ave age approx. 13years old).
Think it will be a while before you see the A320s flying AKL-CHC as they are earmarked for the AKL-SYD run to begin with (so TG992 said on a previous post). Perhaps Q3/4 2004 you might see some scheduled for internal flights as the A320s would have by then arrived in numbers.

I thought I read that the first A320s will be replacing the B762s on Australia and Oceania routes. This may spill-over to the domestic use of B762 as they might not be available due to planes leaving the fleet / non-necessity of schedule ferry flights.
