ANZ currently flies 3x weekly to TPE. I believe the 3rd flight is the seasonal extra flight.
NZ always flies 2x weekly to TPE.
About Osaka, it's not only ANZ will cutback from KIX. KIX will lost several airline and frequencies when NRT opens 2nd runway. Many airline and the newbies has received new and additional slots for NRT.

Looking at Air NZ's situation in general, I really think their future is bleak at the moment. If they had kept Ansett & sold 50% to SQ when they had the chance or allowed SQ to buy News' 50% they would have been a much stronger carrier in the Asia Pacific region.
The NZ market is very small & for Air NZ to grow acquiring Ansett was a logical step. Some wrong decisions eventually resulted in Ansett's demies & Air NZ's government ownership.
