yep, I'm doing the same keeping my fingers and toes crossed! Hope that they don't fall back much more, I know the guys at ANZES are doing an outstanding job,
tho 'NZ1' has said that the second aircraft will be complete in about 2-3 Weeks, then it has to be scene off by the FAA and CAA, and hope the IFE does not crash again LOL,
tho looking at the dates it will be a very tight push to get it done, if the third aircraft goes in on time, I think its around the 15-20 Sep, this happens, (someone at akl could confirm this ) then it should be done by about the first week of Nov, which would work just right, however then you have 2 brand new T7
's as well to play with!!
As it goes everyone at work, is still got hope in them, and were still taking bookings for the 6th Nov, based on the new refit..
