I'll be travelling from Brisbane to Auckland on Air New Zealand Biz Class in July with an AD ticket. It is a 767 bothways. 767-200 on the way there and 767-300 on the way back.
Can anyone tell me the difference their service/seat in 762 and 763s?
Would I be better off going on a 747??

Thanks a lot


PS I'll also be on Air NZ link from Auckland to Bay of Islands (KKE) and Auckland to Ratorua (ROT) on a Metro and a Embreaer... what is it like??

Hi. I'm from Switzerland and I would love to fly with Air New Zealand, but I had never the chance so far. Maybe this or next year. But anyway there were some trip reports about Air NZ last week. They are still on the forum. It was written, that Air NZ is a great airline, they wrote only posiitve things. One report was also from a BIZ-Class flight. I also heard plenty of times that they are very good.
Greetings from Switzerland

I am doing the same in late August SYD-AKL 767-200, AKL-SYD 767-300. I gather the seats are bigger on the 200 series but don't know about the service. I would stick with the 767 rather than the 747-400.

You can pre book your seats on ANZ as well.

Well on the 762 the seat pitch is about 3" more bigger than the 763. Service great as usual!!

I have taken the segment to Rotorua but that is it. The flight is good, but very bumpy as you only fly at about 9-10 000 feet. You don't get saervice on the props (Well i was fortunate to get the 732.), but their is 1 flight attendant on board who will try and make ytour flight comfortable.

Try and get the Front seats on the Props.

Thanks a lot Airnewzealand,

I don't know, but I guess I've always been used to the idea that bigger aircraft has bigger seat pitch... Quite a surprise to me that the 762 actually have bigger seats than 763.

Anyway, I'm sure NZ's service is a lot better than the last time I was flying with them... (mid-90s) And to tell the truth, I'm really really looking forward to it!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Well, I still have to go through my finals (exams)... ARGH~~~~~~~~~~~  Angry

Best Regards,

From what I can gather from the NZ seating plan, the seats on both aircraft are the same, however the seat pitch is different (as pointed out by Mikey).

762: 33"
763: 32"

Does anyone have tips for seating on the 762, as I will be flying on one later this year.

What can one expect in terms of service from AKL-CHC-ZQN? In business & economy.

I have never flown on that route with AirNZ .... I had the worst experience flying with QFNZ.

The best seat in the 762 is 41G!! I always sit in this seat when ever i can. It is a really nice seat. I dodnot know why though!!

The Tv is right in front of you also.

And the F/A's start the service from there. It is great!!


Enjoy AirNZ!!
