Air New Zealand flight NZ038 was forced to delay 20 hours after the pilot found technical problems on the 767 on July 6. Due to the tarmac at TPE was full and TPE was hit by thunder storms, the plane was forced to divert to another area at TPE. NZ asked Qantas for help about the problem.

The plane finally took-off on July 7th 1530LT, 20 hrs after the original departure time. The long delay was due to no available spare parts in TPE. The spare parts were sent from Japan.

231 passengers were sent to airport hotel, and NZ offered free meal and telephone cards. No major complains from the passengers.

Expect some full load this summer, as Taiwanese now prefers Australia and NZ as the travel destination since September 11.

Anyone no which 763 it was? Yes 231 is a really good load for TPE! Usually 31 would be about right.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Better safe than sorry so good job Air NZ!
