This is so Ansett

It is nice to see more Airbus on trans-tasman routes!

The NZ livery looks very sharp on the A320...the plane looks quite impressive in this photo.

Always nice to see Airbus narrowbodies down-under again though (if I am not mistaking).

I'd have to disagree. I think the problem is not the ANZ livery (which I quite like), but the fact that it doesn't suit the A320, imo. Besides, I don't like the bulbous nose of the A320...the 737 looks much more attractive. Please don't take that the wrong way - it's a purely aesthetical consideration.

Anybody know what sort of route proving flights ZK-OJA will undertake before entering "normal" service? When are the next 320s to arrive?

Not bad. I think the NZ livery looks better on the bigger jets like the 747.

Are Air NZ going to name their A320's ? I think the Maori names sound wonderful - I flew a 767-200ER NAN-HNL, it was called "Aotearoa" which is I believe what the Maori call New Zealand - The Land of the Long White Cloud - fantastic ! Aotearoa - just rrrroolllls off the tongue.

Gosh, JGPH - you were on ZK-NBA, the first 762 we ever got!

I suggested directly to our CEO we name the A320s - he said he'd 'pursue the idea', but I'm not optimistic  Sad

The A320 will be functioning as a 'backup' aircraft and also to complete a last few hours of training from its arrival until September 30, so it will no doubt be seen in SYD at some point prior to the 30th.

The first Airbus A320 is to be named:

It is to be called "Rainbow Warrior" in honour of previous French input into NZ's ability to transact international (transport) policy.

I really like the the way A321 looks in the livery. I think that the A321 would look much better in the old livery or in the one that : 9V-SVE posted. I like those liveries because they have more green in the livery. I love the Maiore symbol. I love its meaning. The pacific people have such nice things to say about their symbols.

Geez, ZK-NBA, Aotearoa.
I had a photo taken of me sitting in the captain's seat of that one when it first arrived.
Flew Seattle-Wellington direct to signify the resumption of Air NZ trans-Tasman services out of the Capital which had been monopolised by Qantas (and their 747SP's and 767's) after the retirement of the DC8's.
Was on static display the next day, hence the photo although it's long since been lost.
TG992, why don't you keep at him about the names?
We've got the seven canoes on the 747's, birds for the 737's. (I might be out of date here. Do the 744's and 733's still carry names?)
Either rivers, lakes or mountains for the A320's would be a nice touch.

Silly really, but what with the Lord of the Rings tie-in/special c-s - how about Hobbit names ? Call the first one "Frodo".

I've been told by an NZ steward that there will be a third "Lord of the Rings" aircraft. Is this going to be an A320?

@doorstomanual: You are totally WRONG  Wink/being sarcastic
ANZ livery on A320 looks phantastic, I think it's hard to find an airline-type where the NZ-colors don't look nice!
Also on our little cute fatty (737).
