Well this will not do the Boeing workers any good at all .
Air NZ will no doubt have already taken bookings and I guess they will have to rearrange. Either put on a 74 or a couple of 76-300 extra flights.
This surely must have a flow on effect for the Airline. It can`t do otherwise.
I also suppose it means they cannot get rid of the oldest 767-300`s?

Like ZK-NBT said, none leave till April 06, and it isn't the oldest ones which will leave first, but the costliest to lease. NCN and NCO are the newest in the fleet, and they will be gone with 12 mths.
Says that Air New Zealand could get millions for the delay in supplying the Aircraft.
This obviously depends on the length of the delay. The Airline has been inconvenienced by not having the aircraft available.
So Boeing will have to make some amends.
