Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2018

I'd like to think that 3C could make a go of TEU-AKL flights, but it is a very long prop time, well over two hours probably. Prices would also probably need to start lower as it's a new market. I believe TEU might only be viable on a charter basis by a tour operator for a Milford daytrip. Thought t...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2018

For all you AvGeeks out there keen to try out NZ's leased BR 77W, it will be flying AKL - CHC on 26 and 29 August! This is on top of the odd AKL - SYD and AKL - NAN flight, before it goes on AKL - HNL from 4 September onwards. See: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/279879/air-new-ze...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2017

At some point I could see some domestic A321's although that seems a while off, there is a chance that some of the owned Regional A320CEO's find there way to the domestic fleet if more capacity is required in the short medium term. The first 4 domestic A320s (non sharket) are leased, while the rest...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2017

SQ: - The SQ codeshare map is outdated, not accounting for various route developments (like MAN now being served non-stop from SIN, and not via MUC). - WLG - SIN is shown as being part of the NZ - SQ alliance - aside from the inaccuracy of not including the CBR stop, I thought that NZ do not codesh...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2017

While we don't yet know what the next J product will be, we do know precisely how it'll all be played out. It'll be marketed as new and innovative, but will in fact be lifted from another mid level carrier. The difference being NZ will make it just *slightly* smaller, enabling them to squeeze in 10...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2017

I was upgraded to J class before takeoff (supposed to have happened prior to boarding but ultimately resolved) and I gotta say, for the flagship longhauler in the fleet, the NZ J seat seriously needs a rethink (albeit the service was excellent). That herringbone has got to go - zero privacy - and t...
