Does anyone know of any new services planned for AKL?

Obviously HA are planned and CI have gone daily.

Probly best in the NZ thread but anyway.

Nothing of note that I can think of other than a few seasonal increases.

CX117/118 returns daily only Dec through Feb, doesn't operate at all other than that period, no 744s this year though.

QF and EK may add flights, PER/ADL-AKL are being talked about, they would be QF operated though as EK can't currently operate anymore Tasman flights. PER would be an A330 most likely A332 763 outside chance with the upgrades, ADL probably Jetconnect 738. EK could add AKL-SIN-DXB imo or AKL-DXB non stop with this deal, I think they will at some point just a matter of when maybe a few years away still I don't no.

Its been mentioned LA may increase flights next year I think nothing official though.

Zest Air of the Philippines have been said to be looking at MNL-AKL. Hopefully a US carrier DL or UA most likely, from LAX? Maybe another Chinese or Gulf carrier?

Apart from above, these routes have been speculated:

JQ to LAX once their 787's arrive
NZ to IAH / DEN / ORD and South America
Travel is my thing
