|Quoting 777ER (Reply 2):|
Last time I asked an NZ employee (who knows alot about NZ ops etc), he said NZ is only having ZK-OJH, and doesn't plan on painting another in the colour scheme. Thou it would be nice to have both a long haul and a short haul (IMO maybe a B772, as they also operate nearly every International flight except Pacific Islands and say a B733 or a regional turbo-prop)

However, repainting an aircraft when it's not really necessary doesn't contribute to economic thinking...
|Quoting Zkpilot (Reply 4):
Star have a minimum a/c size requirement for the scheme, so no turboprops I'd imagine.
|Quoting Xiaotung (Reply 8):|
Air New Zealand has been a Star Alliance member since 1999 and its only Star livery a/c was only painted last year or so. I wonder what had taken so long. There was once rumor that Air NZ wanted to leave Star. Does it have something to do with it? And how comfortable is it now for Air NZ in the alliance?

For a small airline like NZ it needs all the publicity it can get at long haul destinations

OK - but SAA are not even officially in Star yet but they have an A340-600 in the Star Scheme.
