Although I hate what they did to our beloved Ansett, I flew with Air New Zealand to Europe and loved every second of it (except the transit in LAX). Great livery, service, food. Even got upgraded to biz class LAX-AKL. Simply amazing. (Doubt I'll ever willfully fly them again though).

I'm sorry, but when faced with a choice between QF and NZ, NZ wins hands down.

I hope people such as Cushing are no longer at NZ - Toomey had to take the public flak for what were really board room and external factors.

Interesting repost from Going Boeing on PPruNe:

There has been a massive oversupply of seats on the Tasman for a long time. In early 2000, Air NZ brought out a new schedule which dramatically increased the frequency of flights between NZ and Aust. Of course, Qantas wasn't prepared to let Air NZ grab a bigger slice of the market so they matched the frequency - the result - too many seats. An example of the effect of this oversupply is in the month of November 2000, Air NZ lost approx A$10 million on their trans Tasman flights (slightly more than what Qantas lost). This oversupply will probably continue until airline reserves dwindle to the stage that one of the protagonists cries "Uncle" and starts reducing the number of available seats - no prizes for guessing who makes the first move.

I would love it if they came to Melbourne a bit more often. I have seen one Air New Zealand 747 here in the past year. Damn those 767 and 737's! It is a great livery too.

That picture on the top of the post looks more like MARS-AUK. Great picture, not my favourite airline and most definitley not my favourite management.

Even though I've been publicly swaying from Qantas lately, never will I turn to NZ, what they did was unforgiveable and I think that we are sending a message that the collapse of Ansett was ok by flying with them. They are now on my list of things to boycott.

I've had my two cents.

Just to remind you, The AN people have forgiven AirNZ, and the sooner you get over yourselfs the sooner you guys will make AirNZ and AN survive!! AN needs AirNZ, and AirNZ needs AN!! Dont you see that??
I know it was Worst than bad of what AirNZ did, but for the sake of AN....Travel both Airlines!!

It's nice to read that people are so "unbiased" in their views of NZ. I don't have any cultural alliances here, so I'm going to give my unsolicited two cents worth. Air New Zealand had no more to do with the collapse of Ansett than I did. Okay, maybe they prolonged the agony a little, but Ansett was well on it's way to the history books when News Corp. sold its remaining interest to Air New Zealand. The only thing NZ is guilty of is getting into a pissing match with SIA and overpaying for the remaining 50%. I am sad to see the demise of Ansett and the loss of jobs for thousands of employees...but misdirected anger will not bring it back.

I'm speaking from experience. I worked at Eastern Airlines when it went into bankruptcy in the late 80s. We could have blamed Jimmy Carter for signing the Airline Deregulation Act into law; we could have blamed Delta Air Lines for exploiting a weakend Eastern at the Atlanta hub; and we could have blamed Frank Lorenzo and Texas Air (admittedly, many did) for gutting the company of its most valuable assets. But it really came down to YEARS of mismanagement, animosity between work groups within Eastern, and some really bad business decisions.

Like it or not, I think the same is true of Ansett. Again, my two cents.

Well,

NZ's only flying two 762s daily to MEL nowadays - a halved schedule.

Good post Picarus.

Like I said before in another post, for a backgrounder into the Ansett collapse, read the October issue of Australian Aviation.

They looked at the WHOLE situation that led to this, even pre-Air NZ.

Or would that be too unbiased a view for some here?

And again, if Qantas via the Aussie Govt had kept their noses out when SQ wanted to increase their stake in NZ, this may never have happened.

But no, far easier to blame it ALL on Air NZ!

Yes,
AirNZ have reduced services to Australia Dramatically. Only 1x flight to BNE per day from AKL now, and other flights to SYD have been decreased from 5-3, with two being used as 733....something along those lines anyway!
Ill find out for you...
Sorry info above may not be correct, though i know that AirNZ has declined the Aussie frequency alot!

Cheers

PS: Kiwidave, i think we can safely say that F27 will always have a 'grudge' against NZ. Im sure if he does have a grudge, he will never be reappointed by AN as they are going through Interviews again!!
