Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - September 2020

Can see the government taking full ownership due to the airline not being in a position to pay back the $900 m loan for a very long time. Very unlikely indeed in my view. More likely is that the $900m (and possibly more) will be converted to an equity stake and leave the existing shareholders' stak...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2020

NZ is NOT at 74% capacity of pre covid levels. Yesterdays total load factor over all flights were at 74% with 55% pre covid capacity levels. Unless you have better information I will interpret it as 74% of last years schedule. On July 3 Cam Wallace tweeted this. ""Busy day as we move into...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2020

NZ and JQ domestic is no where near 100% pre covid. Its currently July school holidays so NZ have put on extra flights or swapped for larger aircraft including using B787s but currently NZ capacity for July/August is 55%. JQ restarted domestic last Wednesday and is operating with 5x A320s at 40% pr...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2020

Some serious rumors that a wider lockdown will be reimposed in Melbourne later today - 191 new cases today :-( Indeed looking more likely now. Without wanting to get into the politics, i cant help but think the feds position on suppression was the wrong one now, with this type of situation becoming...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2020

Presumably only those pax who live in Australia or who have already spent quarantine in Australia would be allowed. Then they could enter NZ without further quarantine. Means that we’d have to synchronise quarantine rules, that’s all. Yep that would work, hotel quarantine bills will just have to be...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - June 2020

With the Tasman Bubble, and transiting passengers I wonder how that would work? Surely transiting passengers would be prohibited from Tasman Bubble services? Point being the current 3x COVID19 cases in New Zealand. All transited via Australia in the past week, and connected onto NZ flights. Surely ...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - May 2020

I'm quite impressed by how many 787's NZ has been utilizing lately. Counted 9 in the air at one time a couple of days ago. Also 77W's seem to be getting a good run too. Does anyone know if all the 787's and 77W's are being cycled through currently? I understand that there a couple of 789s current o...

Has Jetstar cancelled NZ domestic flying from next Monday? I have a ZQN - AKL flight on the 24th and it looks closed for reservations although I haven't received any notification yet

Radio NZ says that an announcement re NZ's plans to bring Obama here is "close to completion" and due "next week." There is no mention of ORD, but interestingly, they look at the potential for NZ to alienate Trump supporters in America. See: https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/nation...

Re: Rumor: Air New Zealand to announce Chicago

Hi everyone Long long time lurker first time poster. It seems NZ's strategy is to build a US port up to daily then look to start the next, which of course with Houston now up to daily it's time to get into either ORD or EWR. This combined with the steady growth in wide body connections from Australi...
