NZ1 or other AirNZ insiders.......

I note the above flight from AKL-LAX , August 31st. Was this a positioning flight or was it for some other purpose?

NZ1001 was a ferry flight from AKL to LAX. It has since departed LAX as NZ6004 to ARA where it will spend the next two weeks being repainted.

The flight, a Boeing 747-400, departed LAX for ARA at 1325 local time and is en route.

The aircraft involved is ZK-NBT.

Cheers!

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

Thanks NZblue,

You beat me to it, haha. That is correct, It will do a swap with ZK-NBV at LAX on it's return, and NBV will get a fuselage repaint.

Regards

NZ1001 carried passengers, right?

Safety Dude, I believe NZ1001 did not carry any passengers aboard. Perhaps NZ1 can verify this for me.

Also, NZ1, I have been trying to confirm with our NZ LAX Airport station managers whether or not ZK-NBV will simply be repainted or painted with the newly announced names/images of New Zealand. Have you heard if indeed ZK-NBV will be the first NZ 744 to receive this scheme? I was told it was only going to be a simple repaint, but I hope my sources are wrong.

Cheers,
NZblue

NZblue

I thought the first new repaint of the images of New Zealand would be introuduced on the first B744 that is rolled out of the AKL hanger with the new cabins

NZBlue and 777ER,

ZK-NBT's ferry flight did not have passengers no. Just cargo and crew. When NBT comes back to LAX it will swap out with NBV which is having the fuselage only repainted, in our normal livery. NBV is only being repainted due to the paint damage caused by the removal of the LOTR decal, and associated corrosion. At this stage, the images being applied to the forward fuselage are just 2 metre decals, which will be applied during scheduled 'A' and '2A' checks. I don't know which aircraft will be the first yet, however I was told it will be towards the end of September. As soon as I know which aircraft it is , I will of course let you all know.

777ER, The first aircraft to receive the cabin upgrade will be ZK-SUJ during it's D check in May next year, followed by ZK-SUI on it's D check, then ZK-NBW. ZK-SUH is not having the cabin upgrade to it being retired in early 2006.

Regards
NZ1

I thought ZK-SUJ just had a D check? No?

Atleast the NZ 744 fleet will be looking nice and fresh! Will SUJ get a repaint sometime after its LOTR decals are removed?

NBV will obviously have the Pacific Wave added again!

In the list I have, SUJ isn't the first to receive the new interior, SUI is, so I'd assume Nz1 made a typo. NBU is the last, early in 2006.

Sorry TG992, you are correct. I was planning my son;s birthday at the time, and admit my mind was elsewhere. SUI is indeed the first. ZK-NBT, you are right also, ZK-SUJ did have a D check just recently. I should proof read my posts more frequently.

Thanks
NZ1
