Air New Zealand a while ago announced that they would be extending their highly successful Express brand (a value airline plus brand) to trans tasman and some south pacific islands.
I flew the Express brand several time over the Xmas period, and while it was excellent value for internal flights of 45min to an hours long I was wondering about the longer Aus and South Pacific flights.
These flights are typically 3 hours in length and I'm told the on order A320s (due October) will be configured for these flights use, so.....
Will there be IFE on-board these flights, to help fill the extra hours ?
Will the A320s have a business class (I'm also told that current trans tasman flights do not have first class ?
