My post was purely sarcastic. Of course NZ don't need A380's!
I think Tullamarine has hit the mood of most posters here perfectly.
On the other hand, I think that an NZ B777 will only have a capacity of 300 at most in a 3 class, maybe 330 in a 2 class. Depends on how tight you want the Y cabin to be
. Thanks for trying to hammer some sense Oz777, much appreciated.
Sometimes I really wonder what some people do with their time, fantasizing about RTW routes on B747-400's, daily HKG-LHR service when the airline doesn't even fly to AKL-HKG daily...man...
United Airline, do the words, core markets, profit, costs per seat mile, fare yield, demand, frequency, crewing costs, highly leveraged, 1 billion dollar loss last FY, lack of feed from Australia and uncertain future mean anything to you? Cos if they did you'd see that HKG-LHR is a pipe-dream. And we haven't even started talking about the competition that exists on that route ALREADY...and there's more flights being added, with 3 more per week on CX starting in July!...
