I know NZ has placed a firm order with Boeing for (5) 77W to replace the 744 fleet and they get their first one in Q4 but are they looking at filling the remaining options to balance the fleet of (7) 744's retiring?

Are they going to start withdrawal this year of the 744's? I assume the 77W will fly LHR via HKG westbound and via LAX eastbound. Have they announced seating yet?

Thanks for the info.

My impression is that with 5 aircraft they will use them on AKL-LAX- LHR and AKL-LAX.
The 77E is sufficient for present traffic demand on AKL-HKG-LHR , According to another thread the interiors detail is to be announced very shortly.

It would take six frames to operate both routes ( assuming that AKL-HKG-LHR goes back to being daily at some point ) and that is not even allowing for a spare for downtime/maintenance.

I think that they would go to daily via HKG with the -200ERs ( which apparently are going have the interiors upgraded to the same product as the 300ERs ) before trying to run with -300ERs
