Has anyone flown on this airline before from SYD?
What are their service like in J Class? I heard they use NZ 767? Is that correct?

They lease an NZ763 rego P2-ANG (ex ZK-NCE) probably still has NZ interior, though can't confirm that.

Sorry can't answer the rest.

The 763 is indeed an ex NZ model. It is now leased from ILFC by Air Niugini, and yes, still has our interior in it, and one of our engines on the r/h wing.

I fly them a couple of years ago BNE to POM - their j class service was fantastic with some of the nicest barramundi served that I have ever had - in the air or on the ground. No PTV but there is screens for the movie upfront.

from memory the cabin was very spacious as well with heaps of room compared to QF that I flew on the way back home.
