I once had the opportunity to fly AKL-CHC in an Air New Zealand 732. It was a one hour flight for us, and in Ansett's BAe 146, it was a one hour 10 minute flight. The Ansett flight left before us, and once we were cruising, the captain commented how annoying they were, as the 737 usually caught up, but then had to wait for the 146 to descend (at a slower rate than the 737), and land, which basically lost the speed advantage. Needless to say, these pilots weren't particularly impressed with either Ansett or the BAe 146!
