Very nice indeed.  Big thumbs up

Too bad we won't see the 767-300(ER) and the A320 in the special livery in the continental USA, though.  Sad

I don't think NZ flies the 767-300(ER) to LAX that often. I do believe, though, that NZ does fly the 763ER to HNL on a regular basis.

Are you sure this is news? I saw the Frodo 747 in LHR on December 14, 2002. That's about a year ago!
