I know this has been discussed a lot but there doesn't seem to be anything happening to the AN-NZ Group in renewing the fleet? Rumours has it that Ansett is going to acquire 744s (presumeably from SIA) for flights to LAX and NRT and "possibly" LHR (personally I think that will not happen in the near future, although it would be fantastic if it was true.)...
And this AN-NZ Group changing it's name thingy... what's going on with them? Anyone can tell me??
It would be great if:
747-400s for LAX, Europe
777-200/300s for Japan, HKG major asian routes
***A340-300s for AUS-S African services (No Star Alliance airline operates this route leaving it all to SA and QF!!)
A330-200s for TPE, KUL, SEL minor asian routes and trunk domestic routes.
A321/320-200 for Indonesia, Fiji and trunk domestic routes.
CRJ-400/300/200 for Aus Regional Routes.
Retire 767-200/300s and 737-300s
777-200/300s for Japan, HKG, SIN major asian routes
***A340-300s for S. American services (No Star Alliance airline operates direct services from AUS/NZ to S America, leaving it all to AR and QF!!!)
A330-200s for TPE, BKK, and trans Tasman services
A321/A320-200s for Pacific routes (PPT, NAN etc) and trunk domestic routes
DH8-400/300/200Qs for NZ Regional services
Retire 737-200s (although the aircraft is full of history and memories)
The above mentioned A321/320s can be subsituted with 737NGs
What do you think?
