Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - April 2019

Thanks for the clarification regarding NZ1. It seems the good peoples got an extra day in London as opposed to LAX. Honestly I wouldn't mind a 3:30am arrival time in AKL for flights from the US. One way to beat the customs crush and rush hour traffic in Auckland. Bet the customs and Immigration peop...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - April 2019

You know what. I'll bet that flight I saw this morning was a one off delayed overnight flight from the day before . What threw me off was the scheduled arrival time of 3:30am at AKL. Bonus day in LA for a flight full of people I guess

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - April 2019

Quick question.
How long has NZ1 been scheduled to land at AKL @3;30am? I always thought they were scheduled for 5-5:30am? Did they lose the later slot at LAX? Is AKL going to turn into a 24/7 airport?

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2018

NZ101 is returning to Auckland, anyone on the "inside" know why? I'm too cheap to buy the flightradar24 prem acc so don't know the Squawk code.

It's ZK-OKH if that helps.

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2018

Does anyone know when Air New Zealand is due to or intends to make an announcement regarding the A350 or 777-8/9?

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2018

Gasman, regarding your post last month that the region has "far less that 400k population in relation to the Hamilton Airport vs Whenuapai Airport micro debate. Wikipedia has the Waikato regional Population at 460,100 and the Bay Of Plenty projected to be 277,000 in 2011. Round the BOP up to 30...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - May 2018

What does everyone think about HLZ's potential to expand in the coming years? There's been a claim today that HLZ "will be Auckland's second airport one day. There are rail links to Auckland, Tauranga and Wellington; half the country's population is two hours away; there's limited natural disa...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - March 2018

Still think ORD would undermine IAH in terms of Eastern Seaboard traffic. Any chance we might see anything other than ORD? Look at it this way. From numbers in Bradley's article, it seems that the market is growing (this year, at any rate) at 10% per year, pretty much in both directions. Back of th...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - September 2017

Regarding new destinations on the US west coast. Being a Star Alliance partner means the first choice for new airports would be United Hubs. SFO, LAX, and IAH are all United hubs whereas SEA and LAS are not. Denver is but the you'd be drinking part of United's milkshake, so to speak, by flying there...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2017

Hiya NZ6 Thank you for the detailed and informative response. I have done some further digging as to how full the flights are etc. Economy is showing at less that 8% full by my calculation. Sure a lack of supply and limited demand should drive prices higher but in this case i believe it's artificial...

I'll be flying NZ7 in FEB 2017. I work in the SF Bay area on regular approach path to SFO ( Foster City) and have noticed the once daily Air New Zealand flights have not been daily anymore. Have Air NZ been dropping flights and transferring passengers to the newish UA 916? Will I be switched to a Un...
