[quote=aerorobnz,reply=149]I think it was actually way early arriving and they needed to slow down so the media release would still be on time

aerobnz is correct. Flight was scheduled to arrive at 0900 but was actually in the Auckland area at 0805. Same thing happened when the 787 arrived. They sent the aircraft down over the Coromandel and then brought it back up giving the media time to get set up.

It will be easy enough to find out once I'm back at work, but I'd say your chances are 1 in 5 on your return flight, Less likely for the first sector. LAX is daily 77W from 24th which means OKQ will be in the mix from then. I suspect it will operate NZ5/6 for a while (as a single sector) first of all though,
Quoting zkojq (Reply 146):
I3news mentioned the 24th but i cannot remember if that is for LAX or LHR

thanks for the replys! Ok, so looks as if there is a slim chance it may operate to LAX on the 24th.... fingers crossed

Hey anyone know a website that lets you see how many seats are left in varios class on a flight, pretty basic format and 7 was the max it showed meaning 7 or more seats were available. I know there is one which you can subsribe to but this one I am talking about was sufficient. I have just booked a day trip to SYD and it appears there are loads of spare seats down the back so was keen to ascertain if that was the case. cheers

Considering the price, and the fact that domestic NZ flights are usually about 1 hour long, I think most people (like me) would try to wait until arrival to use a phone.

Ok then you were probably on our newest A320D and each new aircraft fitted with the mobile device has to be signed off individually . Unfortunately this means for a while each new aircraft fitted with the system will fly around with the service disabled until the aircraft's mobile service equipment has been certified and allowed to be used . The crew probably made the PA about the service forgetting that they were on that aircraft OJS as its currently disabled .

Would the latest maintenance checks be done before coming here and will it need to reconfigured in the cabin before domestic service?
I wonder how the hours and cycles compare to it's current trans tasman sisters?

Yeah I have briefly. There are some announcements to be made shortly about the longhaul business, anything regarding new routes etc are likely to be done then. Retrospective 330 edto for 200ER won't be until at least November this year - if Boeing have endorsed it by then..

OJK arrives next week into AKL. All current due maintenance has been carried out by TAM in Brazil. The aircraft is not going into Domestic service but is to be utilised "elsewhere" until May, when it will come into the CHC hangar to be fitted with IFE and have a few Service Bulletins carried out before starting on the Tasman late June.

While researching for a couple of rtw trips involving at least 6-8 longhaul flights each later in the year I have noticed that I am actively avoiding the 3-4-3 configured AF/KL/EK 77Ws when looking for fares and am prepared to pay 300-500USD more and depart at slightly less ideal connections and fly indirect/longer routings to ensure my flights do not involve these aircraft. It really just struck me that NZ are in the same boat and must be missing out on some pretty decent fares as a result. I haven't travelled on NZ longhaul for almost a year, but it was like a lightning bolt from the sky when I realised just how many people around the world must be like me when constructing their travel plans.

More good news for WLG Airport;

''Wellington airport draws global acclaim''

Opinions may be divided, but Wellington Airport's so-called Rock terminal continues to rake in accolades.

The terminal, which has often been compared to two pumpkins, was this week ranked fourth best in the world by travel website frommers.com.

Since its completion in 2010 it has won 13 awards, including the transport category at the World Architecture Festival and the Registered Master Builders commercial project of the year.

Christchurch Airport signs up top sportsmen

Two internationally respected Cantabrian sportsmen have signed on to represent Christchurch International Airport overseas.

Cricket great Sir Richard Hadlee and rugby hero Brad Thorn are the first of a team of Christchurch International Airport Ambassadors and will represent the airport in India and Japan respectively.

Christchurch International Airport CEO Jim Boult says Sir Richard’s ambassadorial role will help raise the profile in India of not only the airport, but also Christchurch and the South Island.


I wonder if this strategy will work?

It will half-work.

Well over 90% of Indian males in the demographic groups to travel long-haul non-VFR will recognise Hadlee. I would guess that the only other Kiwis with even half his recognition would be Chris Cairns and Daniel Vettori.

Unfortunately, I doubt that even 1% of Japanese long-haul travellers will have heard of Brad Thorn. Jim Boult seems to reflect wider Kiwi misunderstanding of the niche of rugby in Japan.

what is not mentioned there is that her activity is actually a breach of aviation laws. If you are airside as a security pass holder you are not entitled to use it to gain access to areas not accessible to the general public (eg an aircraft that isn't boarding). If she didn't use her ID then it is not as serious on her part and the EK agent is partially responsible for letting her onto the plane. this is made clear to all pass holders
As for her causing a delay to her own flight, normally that would result in loss of staff travel and a warning only.
The 2 events combined however do constitute a reasonable case for dismissal particularly the security breach.
The sarcasm has nothing to do with any of this as it was not to a customer or media.

The Post F27 departed the day after its incident and AFAIK is now back in service. Wasn't the Execujet hanger also to be used as an MX base for upto B737/A320?

Seeing as things are going slow on here, there are new destinations yes note the "s" coming up.

Any guesses on where?

If Brazil isn't next on the list then they will never ever increase their profits to the levels they want longterm. I worry that they will just be another place holder destination that really is just designed to convince everyone that NZ is growing satisfactorily instead of the stagnant position they have held for the past 3 years. Let's hope it will be a decent yeilding destination like Brazil not another Chinese city.

Perhaps a AKL-SCL/GRU service? Does the bilateral between Hong Kong and New Zealand permit CX to operate flights between AKL and points in South America such as SCL and/or GRU with Fifth Freedom Rights?

I am not too sure what beyond rights CX have but SCL wouldn't make a lot of sense for them since they already have that taken care of by LA.

CX could operate HKG-AKL-SCL 3x weekly in-cooperation with LA; thus SCL will have 10 weekly flights between both AKL and SYD, plus it would be SCL's first direct service to Asia. Also, it would be great to see TAM launch non-stop flights between GRU and AKL in the future. Luckily TAM has a lot of slots at GRU and wouldn't have to apply for slots at GRU; unlike NZ.
