CI changes from DEC 1st no more Tasman ex SYD to AKL/CHC, SYD goes A359 and increase to 14 weekly from 7 last NW, BNE daily with daily AKL service A333 from 5 weekly last year overall AKL reduces 10 to 7 weekly MEL-CHC 3 weekly A333 same as last year overall CHC reduces 6 to 3 weekly with end of SYD-CHC.
Interesting big increase to SYD, I expect about connections, they start LGW later in the year.
Any thoughts as to why there's no non-stop AKL-TPE service? The route's existed previously (served by NZ, at least), and the number of CI services across the Tasman suggests that the demand is there.
Think for an short period Eva also tried TPE-AKL, think it was in the 90s?
