Pardon my ignorance but why not Christchurch, it is closer to WLG than DUD.

NZ447 is an AKL-WLG-DUD flight, so at least the AKL-DUD pax got to their destination. The AKL-WLG pax will be spending the night in DUD.

WLG airport is not expected to open until about mid-morning Thursday. Air NZ will use a 77E to help clear the backlog.

Looking at flightradar24 NZ447 (ZK-OXM) was not diverted, but rescheduled as a nonstop. There would have been no AKL-WLG pax on the flight.

Is Zodiac Aerospace the manufacturer for the new 54 seat Premium Economy on NZ 777-319ERs?

A new version of FlightRadar mobile app was released yesterday and I'm impressed. It presents a lot more data and leverages my existing Gold subscription.

Maybe most of the pax onboard were going to Dunedin or Christchurch was full. I don't know. That's why I posted it on here.

I thought 463 was the AKL-WLG-DUD flight. Has that changed?

I see NZ is running a 772 AKL-WLG (NZ6149) today to clear the passenger backlog. Where does it park at AKL and how do the passengers get to/from it?
I guess same question for WLG as I thought only 26 was capable of handling it and didn't think it was a swing gate? Perhaps since there's no internationals around that time at WLG that's ok.

Edit - I see 23 at WLG is 772 capable, and I think that is swing gate.
Time for a new viewing deck at AKL!

Not sure if it changed in Aug 2016 or Feb 2017. But I got part of it wrong.
It's still the same aircraft, but now there are separate flight numbers.
NZ447 AKL-WLG 1730/1835, NZ691 WLG-DUD 1915/2030.

Looks like Air Freight is running it's CV-580 ZK-KFL again on the freight runs. I thought this was going to be retired and sold to Air Chathams.

The return NZ410 DUD-WLG-AKL the next morning remains the same flight number all the way through.

At AKL they would just park it in the closest available standoff bay and bus them. There are some between the international terminal and domestic that are often used for freight aircraft.

Yep, hopefully AKL will have a 777/787 gate when they do the new domestic terminal in 2142. Just 1, I guess it might mean the next gate can't be used but that's how it goes, makes it easier when a widebody does need to be used for some reason.

Can't be to far off until we hear where the 2 premium 787's will go this year, I'm picking YVR still. I'm guessing the first A321 will do AKL-SYD, plus there would be some displaced 772 capacity if YVR goes 787, extra HKG slots permitting connecting to EZE maybe.

Last flight for the NZ's 767s is today according to Stuff: http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/9104 ... al-journey finishing with a return flight to Sydney.
Time for a new viewing deck at AKL!

Yes YVR would be the obvious choice although over late Dec/JAN/early Feb they would have to either add on an extra service (8pw) or upgauge back to the 77E. I'm picking the former would work better probably on a Friday or Saturday.

Well March comes to an end with the last 767-300ER finishing its last flight with NZ. now we look forward to the future with the 787.

ZK-OKM is now back in New Zealand which routes will she show up on the next few weeks with the new product on? how quickly will the other 6 aircraft take?
