Wow, SUH making a comeback!

I think you're too happy to spell 'Return' correctly!

Will this indicates NZ's current 3x SYD-LAX will go back to daily?

Does 'the future plan' includes reverting SYD-LAX to daily from current 3x?

Kiwis should heat up the competition (with uncle Sam's help) with the kangaroos.

HKGspotter, whilst Alakanuk, Alaska - Hong Kong - London might be an interesting route, I doubt it would be commercially viable for Air NZ :P

Great News!!! When is this happening? I guess when Air NZ can afford to buy some paint for it???

I don't no about SYD-LAX but maybe HKG-LHR or just to increase other current routes for now.

Was SUH the plane that had the funny koru on it? I flew on a 744 last year which had a koru missing a chunk from the two horizontal lines and I'd seen it a lot before and after then. Sounds stupid, but it really peeved me off.

The Koru is a sticker so it comes off quite easily! Could have been any 744 in the fleet.

I wonder if investors read this site.

NZ shares in AU, jumped 16% today if I heard correctly.

Cheers,

Skystar

That was due to the CEO saying that he hoped the government would sell off it's shares in the airline.

Those Koru's are replaced quite often.
I no SUH is currently without a Koru! Currently she has no markings just a blue tail and winglets and rego!

I found it interesting that 5 out of the 7 744 were on the ground at AKL yesterday (4 on the ground at any one time)....3 in/outside the hangers(incl. SUH)....how could they operate all the 744 flights if most of them are here?? Shouldn't they be somewhere??

I was there last Thursday and there were 5 of 8 744's on the ground! NBT took off to LAX as NZ6! SUH, NBW plus another were at the jet base and another at the terminal!

I guess so.

Through the winter the 744's are usually on the ground for longer but not usually more than 3 at once.

Will they install Spacebeds, PTVs in Coach Class, new Business Class seats etc in their B 747-400s?
