CZ is another airline they will soon have 20 A350s and 25 787 (8 and 9) as well they operate the 777 and the A330. They might order from both Airbus and Boring because one manufacturer cannot supply new aircraft quick enough for them.Jump to post

Where does it end? Do you propose NZ doesn't order any airframes at all because of such publicised infromation?

Regarding the 772 deployment in 2020/21 there is still a bit of flying for the fleet as we already know but the schedule is rather fragmented.

Fly My Sky has started daily flights to Matamata from Auckland for quick access to Hobbiton two flights a day are available. This might do well for them and hopefully will last longer than their Whangarei route:

The 772s have to go somewhere, there is only so many needed on short haul. That would mean only IAH and the odd LAX/SFO are 772. This is an interesting development with all the non USA routes becoming 789s. They could start to retire the 772 fleet straight after London ends which will free up 3 77W...Jump to post
You might be right on the money. Service extended to year round hopefully. I would have doubts that it will go year round anytime soon, if ever, popular in NZ winter, and as we keep saying more profitable markets to send a 789 in summer, KIX/PER for starters. The DPS routes out of Australia are the...Jump to post
Does this LF include through traffic though? I'm not sure it would. So 40% + traffic booked xxx-DXB-CHC.

Please help my memory. I thought that I read about 6 weeks ago a statement from Air New Zealand that all B787s with RR engine issues would be back in service by Nov 1.

What was alarming was also from the Australian thread. That EK's load factor on the SYD to CHC route is just below 40% they must be losing a fortune. If it remains this low for much longer can see them pulling out of Christchurch and park up the A380 in Sydney for the day will be cheaper than flying...Jump to post

Watch this space for a huge increase in Bali capacity next season. Been wondering if CHC-DPS would stand a chance seasonally now that AKL has pretty much daily frequency in peak times. Also CHC-HNL?
