Just curious if anyone knows why NZ has a overnight 747 at SFO? It strikes me as odd since it is on the International A concourse. (A-7)

Air New Zealand Flight NZ 7 SFO-AKL was delayed overnight last night. It is scheduled to depart at 12 noon today. I'm not sure of the cause of the delay though.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Thanks Rose, that was my feeling. But I was scratching my head on why they were on the A side.

It was quite a surprise so see that plane as it was being towed at 5:40PM yesterday evening to Int'l A. Initially I thought it was taxiing towards runway 28 ( too early for it's published flight) until it turned south & I realized it was being repositioned.

Once in a while, there are no gates available in the G-Terminal or there are too many Intl' arrivals during that time period. So, they push them over to the A-Terminal. The same thing is going on with CX. At least twice a week, they are over at the G-Terminal.

Yeah that what I figured. I assumed it was not due out before Uniteds morning Asia bank, so tow NZ was the anser. I didn't realize CX had been arriving over at G. It will be nice when A-1,3,5 is open. We have been in discussions with the airport on parking RON a/c. AS may plan on more overnight a/c and have to park them at the central terminal.

Did you notice they moved one of VA's A320 over to the Central Terminal. Nice advertising. I wish someone would get a shot of VS going by the VA aircraft.

If I can get over there this week I'll try and get the shot. Problem is I am working the last flight of my shift when VS arrives. I did notice the move. I noticed the same day they were doing their photo shoot over the city.
