I can't think of a time where Air New Zealand has been in the media so much. Take the last few months for example (in no particular order)
-New 777 delivered
-777 delay because of strike
-Dreamliner order doubled
-New uniforms
-Engineering redundencies
-Starting of process to fly to Shanghai
-New service to Adelaide
-New service to Nuie
-New CEO
-New inflight product
-New website (though not in the news or anything still something new!!)
-New Bombardier Q300
All this just from the top of my head - (Please list any I may have missed)
That's a lot of news and from all the chit chat on the forums it sounds like there is a lot more to come. And although it's not all good news any publicity is good publicity right????

Maybe in the next month or two we can add the biggest long haul order in new zealand aviation, like B777s, B787s and maybe B744Advs.

This didn't happen in the last few months.. Try something recent.

Hardly Air New Zealands fault entirely. Perhaps its time to get over it?

Hi ZKEYE

I don't think Ryah h meant anything by that . This is a thread about NZ in the media , whether good or bad , and he is pointing out a time that many of the younger people on the board may not be aware of when , unfortunately , NZ had a very high level of interest for the media - I have re-read his comment several times and fail to see anything disrespectful in his tone .

If I thought he was making light of the matter I assure you I would be one of the first posters to come down on him like a tonne of bricks - I was at high school at the time and was acquainted , though not closely , with two people who lost their lives and would certainly not wish to see anyone making jokes or offensive references to Erebus - however , I do not think that means people are not allowed to mention the crash , in context , in a neutral manner .

I seriously doubt any bad feeling was meant by this comment, as the original post asked.

Air New Zealand was in the news a fair bit around Sept 2001 for all the wrong reasons.

Ever since Impulse Airlines started up intercity service between Sydney & Melbourne aviation has been very much in the news.



Why fly non stop when you can connect

Let it go Beno.. If you overmilk the cash cow as Ansett had done for years then you kill it.

Was it not Ansett who ordered or wanted to order 762s with a 3 man cockpit..... I rest my case!!!!  Wink

Yes there was a lot of media attention for Air NZ then, but it was all over the same topic , where as my specific point (and not your fault for bringing it up as I didn't make it clear) was a lot of media for a lot of different things of which most are positive and good for Air New Zealand (however emergency landings and job losses don't help)

I'm sure it would of got out by word of mouth (someone ALWAYS spills the beans) so perhaps they did it to ensure the right reasons for the losses got out and not rumours. (however i'm sure there are somethings they havent told the public...)

wondering if this might be able to save at least some of the jobs under threat - I hope so - it seems terrible waste of highly skilled workers if nothing can be done to save the engineering business .

Overseas investors have expressed interest in Air New Zealand's struggling engineering business.

Whats the range of the 744Advs compared to the existing 744's?
Also I thought NZ could buy their own houses for crew in some long haul destinations like HNL. Have younger F/A's being able to stay for 1-2 weeks on a rotational basis at a much reduced pay rate while there.
So in Honolulu you might have a large house that sleeps 10-12 people with 2-3 F/A's staying at any one time to look after the place.
You have set jobs to do, pick up crew from the airport, looking after the grounds, painting, whatever needs doing.
If you slack off you get dumped off the system.
Should work well for exotic destinations where your going 2-3 times per week.
Subsidiary company set up to own houses including local mortgages etc.
NZ pays set lease to the subsidiary.

Speaking as an Aussie,that is definately in VERY bad taste. Think about the innocent lives that were lost.

Build a bridge over the Ansett river, and GET OVER IT!



Air New Zealand, nothing else needed to be said...
