NZ 777-300ER to IAH during Holiday Season

Mon Sep 10, 2018 1:55 pm

Air NZ is to fly a mix of 772's and 77W's between IAH and AKL during the 2018 Christmas Holiday season (predominately 77W).

I think NZ is flying a mix of everything everywhere this season due to the 789 Engine challenges! SQ lease here, BR lease there, NZ 300s all over there! I do feel sorry for them. AU, and PI is a ‘fluid’ schedule.

I wonder if the 787 engine issues will effect the ORD launch?!

This has been discussed in the NZ forum. Not likely as this will be new build with Trent-Ten engines

Could any of the 77W ops be operated by the BR 77W that NZ is leasing? It would be pretty cool to be able to spot 2x77W BRs in one evening.

As far as airlineroute reports it won't be BR's 77W coming to IAH - the plane is heading to LAX: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... of-06sep18

I only feel sorry for any 10-abreast Y passengers on any NZ 77W flying IAH-AKL.

I know - I booked for 7 Dec when it was showing a 789, wanting to get my first ride on that type. I wasn't thrilled to see it changed to a 773. :x
