NZBlue and 777ER,
-NBT's ferry flight did not have passengers no. Just cargo and crew. When NBT comes back to LAX
it will swap out with NBV which is having the fuselage only repainted, in our normal livery. NBV is only being repainted due to the paint damage caused by the removal of the LOTR decal, and associated corrosion. At this stage, the images being applied to the forward fuselage are just 2 metre decals, which will be applied during scheduled 'A' and '2A' checks. I don't know which aircraft will be the first yet, however I was told it will be towards the end of September. As soon as I know which aircraft it is , I will of course let you all know.
777ER, The first aircraft to receive the cabin upgrade will be ZK
-SUJ during it's D check in May next year, followed by ZK
-SUI on it's D check, then ZK
-SUH is not having the cabin upgrade to it being retired in early 2006.
