Air New Zealand (NZ)'s 777 has finally started to show up in the schedules; effective 30Oct05 it will fly AKL-SFO three days a week, increasing to 5 or 6 days a week a month later. It's NOT in the schedules (yet) for any domestic, Trans Tasman or Asia flights.

Thanks for that The777Man. I wonder when will be the first trans-tasman training flight.

Thanks for the news! I can't wait to fly those lovely "suites" up front, and IFE on NZ for the whole cabin...

I flew Virgin UC suites last Thanksgiving and the seats were wonderful (but VS service and meals are a bit disappointing)! However, with NZ great meal services, I have faith on the success of this new J product.

Not sure you but you may have to wait a little while for that to happen, as I understand KIX will stay mainly 763 for the near term and NRT will get 744 and 763, this is mainly due to a lack of competition on the Japan-NZ route.

I have read it will also show up in Singapore.

What are the chances we will see it on any Australian flights?

Brisbane or Melbourne perhaps?

Guaranteed. Expect it on similar type roles as the NZ 744 Flight to BNE before returning to AKL for the LAX-LHR evening flight. I think MEL is getting the flights that the first one will fly, before returning for the SFO sector. SYD later on I think.

Hi guys,

The first 2 777's will be flying daily AKL-MEL and AKL-BNE flights until October 30th for crew training etc. If you look at my signature it has the arrival dates of the first 2 aircraft.

NZ1, Do you have any idea on when these training flights will start as I might see if I can be on the first B777 flight

I heard from an AirNZ Sales Rep. that the second route for the 777, would be CHC-LAX. Also the 744's are getting the new interiors, so as low season approaches and a 744 is pulled, LAX-CHC goes to 1 x weekly.

I think what V2fix means is why isn't premium mentioned yet in the booking/schedules, not what the config will be.

I looked at the seatmaps in Apollo and I was surprised and dissappointed that the configuration in Y will be 3-4-3. Configuration in C will be 2-3-2.

The 777Man that is rather disappointing that the configuration in Y is 3 4 3, especially with a pitch of the standard 32" as 777ER said ! EK has the same config, but their pitch is more generous...
the generous pitch is one of the things that i like about NZ Even without IFE, the pitch and the service provided by NZ in Y make it my choice over others.

I am not convinced that this will be the config of the new 777s. First of all C will not be 2-3-2 as the 777 will feature the new 'suites'. The lay out will be 1-2-1. Most likely the new premium Y class will be 2-4-2 as seen on BA. Weather the normal Y will be 3-3-3 or 3-4-3 I don´t know, but my best guess is 3-3-3 bearing in mind that NZ has always had a good Y product.

Not sure which I would rather...

34 in pitch with no IFE, now 32 in 3-4-3 with IFE. Seating will be 34 inch, with IFE. Config will be 2-3-2 (Source: Air NZ pictures and info)

777ER: i understood that while the 744 will be 34" with IFE, the 772's will be 32 with IFE?

Why 3-3-3? 2-5-2 (as discussed to death elsewhere...) is much better.

Thats all I got from NZs web-site


25 767ER : So will the refitted 744s initially be introduced on NZ1/2. I am flying LHR LAX mid Novemner - can i safely assume I will get a refitted 744 then???
26 TG992 : Confirming that the Apollo seatmaps are incorrect and the config for Economy will be 3-3-3/ As for 3-3-3 vs. 2-5-2, the majority of passengers prefer
27 ZKSUJ : 767ER-I may be wrong but I think the AKL-SFO route will be the first to get the refitted 744s followed by the NZ1/NZ2 planes
28 767ER : ZKSUJ I imagine so but have a feeling once the 772s commence AKL SFO the refitted 744s will be rotated on NZ1/2 then NZ5/6.
29 777ER : AKL-SFO will be the first route to get the B772s, which will lead to daily services from 2006.
30 The777Man : Thanks, TG992 for clarifying this! I'm relieved ! 3-3-3 is the best configuration in Y in my opinion. I guess Apollo still shows the 744 seat map for
