Boeing/Airbus In New Battle For ANZ Order

This week's Flight International reported that according to an unidentified industry people, that Air New Zealand will soon ask Boeing and Airbus for a proposal for up to 40 aircraft orders.

The new aircraft order will be part of the airline's new short-haul strategy, which including a replacement of all of ANZ's 18 B737-300s (including 4 B733 operated by Freedom Air, ANZ's low-cost subsidiary).

ANZ will not make any official announcement until it officially asked Boeing and Airbus for the new order proposal.

So I guess the new order will be the battle between 737NGs and A320 series.

An A320 in ANZ colors would be smart same with the NGs. I think that Boeing will get it due to the fact that they already have 767 and 744. I could be wrong though.

Why would they want to replace their B737-300s? I thought they were one of the newer ones around?

No idea why ANZ wants to replace 733 so soon.

No words from ANZ, since this is according to unidentified industry people.

I did hear that Air NZ wanted some 150 seaters from a guy I no who works for Air NZ engineering! I said maybe the 737-800 and he said or maybe A320's but who really know's what will happen.

I think Boeing is a better choice because the company has no Airbus in its fleet.

Just because Air NZ don't operate Airbus aircraft at the moment does not mean they can't order Airbus products for future requirements.

I am sure ANZ will go with the more price competitive offer in the end.

maybe the fact that there is no airbus in their fleet ANZ might be able to get a deal with airbus because of them trying to "put their foot in the door" for the NZ market.

just another question...just because they don't have any airbus in their fleet why would they not opt to buy any? is it because of the training costs?
but then they would have to train on a boeing anyway if it was slightly different?

just my two yuan worth
