Cool, it would be great if pax could get access. It would even be great for advertising: '..window views from every seat..'
Are you able to release any information as to which 744's will get which names?
Also, I flew passed the single hangar at Auckland last Monday, and there was a 747 behind closed doors (part way open at the time) inside, which seemed to have one, or some of it's engines removed. What was this?

Looks great but a shame to see the loss of a First class cabin from another leading airline. So long as the service standards are maintained and the friendly crews deliver the best then its a great move by NZ.

I hope they use the coffee colour from the A320 on the carpets. I prefer the coffee colour to that navy/grey colour in the pop-up. Looks nice though.
The economy and premium economy seats look hard, I hope they aren't.
Aren't the premium economy seats the same as BA world traveller plus, and the economy the same as lufthansa???? They look very familiar, but I can't quite guess where

This is ZK-SUI, undergoing it's D check and interior upgrade. Engines are removed for access to repairs on 2 of the pylons. Let me tell you, this aircraft has a huge amount of work on it, and is going to be a great achievement when it rolls out in early June.

Sorry I would love to, but I am not allowed to yet.
Quoting AF022 (Reply 10): from what i've seen in pictures i'm not impressed. the BROWN-ness of it all looks kind of cheap, actually.
I guess the travelling public will be the judges on that one dude.

Looking good NZ, Looking good!
God I think I'm going to start connecting in Auckland again to get to the states.... I guess it is pretty much a given that this new Business class kicks the shit out of the skybed... I am wondering how this is going to affect QF 25/26 (i think.. BNE-AKL-LAX) Now if we could only get them to restart SYD-LAX nonstop... i guess it is a bit hard without the feed but now with DJ starting a frequent flyer program, that may all be about to change?
