The All Blacks liveried ANZ B77W ZK-OKQ is arriving at SFO shortly for it's first visit!

I saw the tail as I was driving past...didn't get a chance to see the livery, but I was wondering why NZ sent a 777. Is this a one-off, or are the 747's gone from SFO for good, or why?

I'd think they'd send it to show off that snappy paint job if nothing else! That thing is a STUNNER!!

Quoting warden145 (Reply 1):

NZ has been sending their 777s to SFO since ~2006. Abeit, their 772. Only recently, they have been sending their 77E.

Since they only have 2 744s in their fleet, they will still come to SFO and be supplemented by the 77E to keep capacity. There is speculation that their 744s will leave the fleet when they get enough of 77Es.

The NZ thread is a good source for information.
