Good news, about time NZ got their first 772!  Smile

When will she go into service?

Will she be operating short flights for crew training or just fly strait into medium/long haul services?

SFO is the first destination right?

BTW - Where does the 744 that operates SFO flights go to now?

I just downloaded an update of the star alliance timetable and noted that CHC - LAX frequency is doubling for the southern winter from 1 to 2 per week, still showing as 744s up until at least April. NZ had planned to introduce the 772 on this route hadn't they?

Edit: Also saw this picture in an article linked from another topic

Cool, hopefully it will be slightly late and end up landing live on the 12pm news. How long is it in Nadi? Will other B777 delivery's follow the same route?

I am pretty sure that I read 9 November somewhere - but whether that is departure from US or arrival in AKL I am not sure
