Sounds not dissimilar to the issues VA had in operating MEL-JNB with their 77Ws.

330 minutes ETOPS on the 77W and 77L. NZ was the first airline to buy-in
|Quoting aerorobnz (Reply 13):|
Incidentally the 77Es are also now undergoing the same maintenance transition from EDTO180 to EDTO 240. Bare in mind that the NZ charter to EZE was operated within EDTO240, so NZ 77Es will be able to reach South America easily.CZ have expressed interest in some kind of partnership with NZ. I believe that if it was implemented that it would be on a routing like this.

Rumor says because NZ wants the traffic right between PVG-LHR. For exchange, CZ wants the traffic right from AKL to somewhere in South America. But CZ doesn't have a suitable plane for that route actually.
