Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2021

It appears to have been late Oct / early Nov 1999. The 29 March to Nov 1999 Timetable has an AKL-NOU-AKL and AKL-TBU-AKL 732 on Sat and an AKL-NLK-AKL 732 on Sun. They are 733s in the Nov 1999 to May 2000 Timetable. NZ also code shared once a week on a Royal Tongan (WR) 732 which was leased from NZ...
