Why is there an ANZ 77W in EVA livery?

Tue Nov 20, 2018 2:33 am

Was looking at AKL-LAX on FR24 and noticed it was operated by a NZ registered 77W ZK-OKT, but it is in full EVA livery. Is it being leased or something?

Yes NZ have leased a BR 77W’s to cover for the 787 RR issues. The lease is through March.

Yikes, those RR problems must be getting pretty bad over there.

The B787 RR issues have affected airlines throughout the world not just in the antipodes!

Those of us in the antipodes have been much more affected than others due to ETOPS.

Well hot diggity, that'll be the best hard J-class product that NZ flies! NZ soft product + B6 reverse herringbone would be great.

Agreed maybe awkward for NZ customer relations when they see a spike in customer satisfaction on flights operated by the BR aircraft.


They also have two SQ 772 but they feature the SQ cheatline only.

Assuredly, they do not have Jetblue/B6 equipment.

You mean BR :idea:

That’s one of the SQ 777s in Auckland last week, which operate for NZ due to the RR engine-issues.

Don't forget the EVA aircraft being 9 across in economy, as opposed to Air New Zealand's 77Ws which are 10 across.

Did those SQ 777's come out of the desert/where were they stored?

No, the ANZ ones were flown directly from SIN with the newer SQ interior. The ones in the desert went to LATAM with the older SQ interior.

Ahh, that explains what I saw a couple weeks ago. I saw one bird on 11/3 and was wondering what such an oddly-painted aircraft was doing. Should have guessed it was for the ongoing 787-9 repairs...

As a regular SFO-TPE flyer on BR, I’m curious how EVA choses which birds to lease out. With EVA receiving their 2nd gen of 77Ws at a fast clip, I assume they’re sending their older 77Ws over to NZ. Personally I prefer the seats on the older birds, but the Panasonic IFE on the new birds makes it no contest.

Ya my son flew LAX-AKL on an NZ 77W and just flew back on the Eva bird. Wider seats were a blessing and then getting the row to himself was icing on the cake given he’s a bigger guy.

It’s 1 aircraft built in 2009, I’m guessing it’s owned by BR for them to be able to lease it out?

They have certainly BR that is added quite a few 77W’s, I always thought they could do with more 789’s as a smaller long haul type.

I’ve heard the IFE system isn’t great or as good a system as NZ’s aircraft.

BR is currently taking delivery of 78Js, so they are grabbing some sized down planes now. However, yes, they do seem to operate a surprising number of large widebodies.

Those are A330 replacements aren’t they, I was thinking more 789 size range for pacific routes where the 77W is to big.
