Can anyone tell me if NZ is still naming their aircraft ... I remember they used to have Maori names (of the land, birds, etc.) Kia Ora

Also does any one have a listing of HA fleet names? Mahalo

At least their A320s don't have any name.
And I can only trace B747 ZK-NBS "Mataatua" and B767 ZK-NBA "Aotearoa", but I am outside my league.

NZ are currently naming their 8x B747 fleet again. The B744s are currently the only aircrafts to be named. The B772s will be named sometime later

ZK-NBW is Wellington
ZK-SUJ is Auckland
ZK-NBV is Christchurch
ZK-NBS is Bay of Islands
ZK-SUH is Dunedin

I thought all the 744s had the logos already.

Interesting since there's probably more people on board than people who live in the town (joking of course).

Sometimes that might not be the case, sometimes could be less passengers on board then residents.
