Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - December 2019

Just seen on the Air NZ travel alerts page that NZ won't be flying the HKG route from early next year. CX will fly twice daily, taking over flights with A350 through JAN and 77W through FEB and MAR, allowing NZ to free up capacity while dealing with the RR issues. https://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/tr...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - November 2019

I've seen flights show up again today but definitely not every day. Earlier in the week there was nothing. I would have thought over the xmas and new year period it would be close to double daily. Could the RR engines be causing trouble enough to reduce service? PER took the hit initially with HiFly...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - November 2019

A lurker of over 10 years has finally signed up, because I can't book any Perth flights! Does anyone know what NZ is doing with this route? No PER direct flights at all bookable in late December or January when I'm hoping to go.
