Just to remind you guys that tomorrow June 8 is the last UA744 service to AKL! I look foward to seeing the 772ER although I like seeing 744's more! I spose a UA772 is different though since they have never been here!
I will probably go to the airport at some stage during the weekend!
If only it departed in the afternoon usually it's partly hidden on the far side of the international terminal with an NZ744 next to it during the day!
Do you guys think the 744 will return to AKL in the future from LAX or perhaps a new UA service to AKL might start from say SFO in the future?

UA are promoting their new 777 really hard! I got invited (thru work) to a famil tour of the 777 on it's first day of operations, including a meal onboard and cockpit tour etc, but declined (doesn't really interest me). But ads are splashed all over industry sheets!

The comment on Ual 777's and PTV's and the 767's having PTV's. Well Continental also has PTV's on all 767-200's, 767-400's, and 777's. So once again UAL may not be the first(i don't know who is) but they could be the first to Auckland.

Someone correct me if im wrong, but wasnt AA the first to install PTVs in all cabins on their 3 class A300s about 10 years ago? I know that NWA was the first to offer PTVs in the first class cabin.

UA is the first airline with a PTV in every seat to fly the AKL-LAX route regularly, remember QF operates the 744s with PTVs reasonably often through AKL.
NBT, I heard from Oct-Nov regarding SQ 777s, but that will depend on permission being granted. I'm certainly hoping they do, because I'll be looking for employment about that time...
