Hey Guys!

I'm wondering if any of you can tell me what is happening with NZ 763 ZK-NCE? This aircraft is now in the same colours as 762 NBJ parked at the jet base in AKL! I have a feeling that it is going back into service because it flew out to Richmond Australia a couplee of weeks ago and now it is back in these colours!

Also when do the 762's start leaving the fleet? ZK-NBA was on international duty yesterday operating NZ105 to SYD!

Anyone no more?
Cheers!  Smile

As I've said in previous posts, NCE is returning to the lessor soon. As a result, the colours have been removed.

NBA will be retired in June/July i believe, and NBJ around the same time.

NBA does do international when needed - for example, as a result of domestic weather conditions, an AKL-CHC service was upgraded an ZK-NBB was the only a/c available to operate it - as a result, NBA took over it's operating pattern briefly. However, it's back to AKL-CHC now.

The pic looks like it's a lease from LOT Polish Airlines to me.

No, it's not.

The aircraft was supposed to be sold to Citybird (I think it was Citybird) and at the last minute the deal fell through.

As the a/c was due to be retired shortly anyway, full colours were not applied.

But the aircraft already left AKL and now it has come back in hybrid colours! Isn't it normal for an airline to remove its colours off an aircraft before it is returned to the lessor.! ZK-SUH now just has a blue tail and blue winglets minus half its rudder!

Sorry NBT, I should have clarified I was talking about NBJ, and the reason it's in the albino colour scheme, not NCE!

Yes, you did.

The LOT 763 NZ leased for awhile was in service with NZ registered SP-LPA.

Read a Japanese magazine saying that NZ usually leased a 767 from LOT seasonally.

Air NZ have not leased a 767 from LOT for afew years now last time I think was 99-2000.

There are now 2 767's in those colours though NBJ and NCE!! NCE was not there today though unless it has moved to another part of the airport.
