As far as the article is concerned - of course it has nothing to do with NZ (directly) but it highlights again the Herald's pro NZ and anti everything else bias. This article almost demonstrates that when there isn't a "real" anti AA/JQ/QF story to write, the paper invents one. The angle ...Jump to post
The crew told pax it was fan blade related according to a friend who was on it. Any chance NZ would rescue or will it for sure be UA metal? Why NZ? Destination is Melbourne Australia NZ is their alliance partner in this part of the world, although I don't think there is enough slack in the widebody...Jump to post

I’d set up Pacific Star flying from SYD/BNE/MEL to LAX and SFO and HNL and to HKG. And extend NZ SFO to LHR.
https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12059947 I've said this before.... does anyone disagree? 1) After seeing this tagged as breaking news on the NZH website, I finally came to the realisation that Hosking and HDPA are the actual owners of NZME and are the only o...Jump to post
Well I am not sure about other airlines, but I know that NZ will for a JV/codeshare with just about anyone, even those outside Star (CX, VA, AR TN, and VS are just the major ones). They do have solid relationships with many airlines within Star, having extensive agreements with SQ, UA and CA, and sm...Jump to post
Bringing over the V8 Supercars for the Pukekohe round this weekend. Umm, I have just got back from the Gold Coast, and it was the V8 supercars THERE last weekend, not Melbourne . . . Not that I'd want anyone to think I was a fan - real racing vars are open-wheelers. But I did just happen to be on t...Jump to post
Look at what you've gone and done EK! Now we are going to be stuck with the "When will EK start MIA?" or "Will MIA be EK's next US destination?" threads for even longer. I do agree with OP that this is a wise decision given the large B6 presence in FLL, congrats to FLL and EK. I'...Jump to post
great news. As long as it is free like EK, not like SQ which charges a heap for it. I would argue that while it would be nice if it were free, it'd also mean it'd be slower. Whilst passengers on a long overnight flight to LAX, SFO, YVR, etc... may be more inclined to sleep or watch a movie rather t...Jump to post
I think it is ridiculous to lock a thread at only 5 pages long when clearly one of the intentions of the new site was to remove the need for so many threads to be split into parts. Sure, maybe lock it when it gets to 20 pages or so, but locking at the usual old 200-220 replies (now 5 pages) seems li...Jump to post
"Air NZ soars - Jetstar dives in TripAdvisor poll" Air New Zealand has been rated one of the world's top three airlines by TripAdvisor. The travel review website recently gave its users the option of rating their flight as well as accommodation. Britain's Telegraph newspaper drilled down ...Jump to post
This ones becoming to long No need, new site splits the thread into 50 reply pages so is very manageable. Also, I have been hearing talk around this site and various others about NZ introducing a new (premium-heavy) configuration for upcoming 789's. Can anyone confirm this? IMO it'd make sense, but...Jump to post
What about the non-stop flight to AKL, although not a new destination it's an interesting development, specially the way EK did, just few days after QR announced the intentions. I don't agree with this being of any more benefit to AKL than previous services already operating. Yes, it was a logical ...Jump to post
I would say that WLG and CBR will benefit from the new SQ SIN-CBR-WLG service which isn't too far away from commencing. While WLG would need the runway extension to get a direct service to Asia, if SQ increase service and there are enough passengers traveling WLG-SIN, then the extension project may ...Jump to post
The route is also starting in the slow season in NZ. A good portion of the traffic to/from NZ is high-end leisure, so not the best time to start the route. Considering the partnership on both ends, I think the flight will do great! Add to this the fact that NZ and UA have a JV on pacific routes now...Jump to post

Maybe an new route launch?
