This replaces the previous routing MNL-CNS-AKL four times a week on the A320. Effectively dropping the interesting CNS-AKL-CNS service.

Of note, NZ had once planned, but since deferred, a non-stop AKL-MNL-AKL 767 service.
Do we think NZ will be miffed to have lost the first-initiative on a non-stop AKL-MNL service? Or, are they quite content deploying their fleet on higher yielding routes? I imagine AKL-MNL would be quite low-yielding.
