Hey guys just gonna tell yas for the people who say AirNZ is behind schedule, they have had an aircraft in the air for almost a year now with Flat beds in First Class!! This aircraft is a 744, and is used on AKL-LAX-LHR route.
It is only a trial thang, and shall be finished soon. They are collecting data from PAX to see what is best!

LOL, no i am not saying that they have rushed into it, and QF donot have Flat beds YET!!
You said it was a success, yet no airline has been able to PROVE it is a success, they have not released any new information on if PAX loads are up from this innovation did they? So in my eyes, no it has not been proven, and no i am not saying any airline rushed into it!

Who cares about pax loads? If they can get more yields by charging higher prices for a better product, then they've done the right thing.
Your grammar is hard to read AirNewZealand, are you saying that QF doesn't have flat beds yet? Cos their entire fleet of B747-400's do...and the B747-400's is the only aircraft where First class is offered.

I believe ZK-SUH is the aircraft (working from memory here) - it's due to go back to the lessors early next year.
Although an updated F class would be nice, it's hardly high on the list of priorities. The only routes NZ offer F class on aren't stacked heavily with Asian bells and whistles carriers competing against them anyway.
