I agree B744,
Looking at the load factors for the next three months nearly every single INTERNATIONAL flight is going out with a full load, now how can they say they are going to cut routes??
Aussie Is especially looking good, with all flights going out full, except for Dec 14th, and Jan 10,11,12,13.
I think the press need to do some research on Load factors before going and saying such rubbish as "there pax loads are not doing too well!!"
Also, AirNZ was a money making side of AN/NZ, though AN gave alot of Pax to NZ as it has been stated. It is good that they are co-operating again, as they both need each other!! At least the press got that right.
I think you have been mis understood by some of the members on this forum! Come on Guys i think you owe this dude an apology. He said nothing about AN Aussie, but as yet again, this thread will be f****d up by people who are still angry at others...I am not relating to you Mx5_boy!!
By the way, yes you are right about them only serving those ports, but look at all the tourists they will pass onto UA, LH, SQ etc.... Everyone knows, LH got real angry at NZ as they were taking all there customers from the LAX-FRA route. Also UA got angry about NZ taking the Pax from HNL-LAX and v.v. Both settled it, though i think AirNZ is still very angry at these two carriers for doing this as they made lots of money for NZ!
Even though NZ only serves these four different ports from every one else, they are the only STAR carrier to serve, all of the Networks....
ie, Asia, Australasia, Europe, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, United Kingdom and America.
The three next closets are SQ, TG, and UA!
BMI is very similar to NZ!!
PS I hope you can understand my GRAMMAR!! LOL!!
