If I remember correctly this route is to be operated by domestic B733s. Is there any idea yet on what mechanical problems the B733 had?

Now NZ1 as the engineer around answer me this, how was NGJ operating to Niue when to my knowledge it is not one of the ETOPS aircraft (FRE, NGD, NGE, NGF, NGG, NGH, NGI). Monitoring the 733 fleet I see SJE and SJC are not being used trans-tasman either. Are they no longer being maintained to ETOPS specs. (onboard SJE a month or so ago I see the life-raft nolonger occupies space in the foward overhead lockers).
