I enjoying flying in B777s and would be surprised if NZ did not choose the A340 series. That's my two cents. Will the introduction of the new aircraft coincide with the introduction of their new premium business class product?

Let's not forget that this order is to replace their 763 fleet as they have repeatedly stated that the 744 fleet will be around for at least another 7 years. So, I would expect a mixed offering from both manufacturers, probably 332/343 from Airbus and 7E7/772ER from Boeing. Can't see this being an order for 345/6 or 772LR/773ER. I think the article is plain wrong saying the 340 is the main offering from Airbus. Oh well, with an imminent decision, we don't have too long to wait.
