Interesting! Will be interested in hearing if others have booked on UA out of Australia with an NZ connection also.

Wonder if UA booking in The Works also comes with the status points earning if your with Airpoints?

I can't say I have noticed on any of the longhaul overnight 787 flights I have flown (NRT-SJC,HKG-ADD-HKG)

I flew NRT-LAX and noticed a remarkable difference. I had flown something like 30,000mi in the week and a half before that flight too.

I did 2 in April... Books into The Works. Just a real difficulty getting seats booked.. I got 1 Y+ seat out of the 3 legs on long hauls flown (2x744 legs didn't give me Y+ unfortunately).

Well every NZ flight earns status points. I managed to get 2/3 the way to NZ Silver from crediting those TT flights to NZ, which were ineligible for UA accrual.

There was more publicity about this than the first 789 flight.... It'd be a real shame if they didn't even give it a wash, even if the weather wasn't that nice this morning

I agree, more publicity from the media than the airline. Looking at videos and I am under the impression it didn't get a wash but rather went to the gate as per normal

Difficulty selecting a seat on NZ or UA? Can see how you couldn't select a seat for the NZ sector if booked online via the UA online seat select, but I've always been able to select a seat on DL or UA web-site when I've booked the connecting flight via NZ. I've just used the NZ booking reference and its always given me access and the DL/UA reference number. If all else fails then I've called the other airline and explained.

The two new livery styles are full black plane with fern and koru e.g ZK-NZE or white fuselage with black rear section with fern and koru e.g ZK-OKC

It seems things at Boeing are not going so smooth with the 787's again. this might be why there is a delay in the Asia routes getting the aircraft.

"Problems still plague 787"

EVERETT — Untimely work and substandard supplier components continue to be a drag on Boeing's 787 Dreamliner program, say factory workers and others familiar with the production process.

The problems prompted the aerospace giant last month to slow the two 787 assembly lines at Paine Field. From mid-August until early September, no new airplanes rolled out of the factory.

Meanwhile, an unusual number of 787s were parked on the Boeing flight line and in other areas of the airport.

ZK-PBL and ZK-PBM are the next ones, right? I noticed that ZK-PBK was repainted in the last month or two. One thing that annoys me about the VA aircraft is that they are named after various Australian beaches. What's wrong with the New Zealand ones?

"Air New Zealand adds more seats to historic Samoa game in 2015."

Air New Zealand will increase capacity between Auckland and Apia to coincide with next year’s historic first match between the All Blacks and Manu Samoa on Samoan soil.

The airline will operate larger Boeing 777-200ER aircraft in place of the scheduled Airbus A320 aircraft between the two ports on 7 July and 11 July to accommodate high demand due to the 8 July match.

The additional 311 seats these aircraft will provide to get fans to the game and back will be offered at a special flat rate Economy Seat fare of $489 one way (exclusive of tax).

A beautiful picture of ZK-NZF returning from a photo flight close to sunset at Paine Field. Two flights yesterday, a C1 (customer flight) and an air-to-air session with the Wolf Aviation Lear Jet in the late afternoon. I'm sure the air-to-air footage (based on the result of other Wolf work) will be amazing.

NZF arrives into AKL in the early hours of Sunday morning. Entry into service should be not too long after that.

NZ1

What about OKS and the 2nd 77E refit aircraft?
Thanks

Great thanks - so hopefully some more short tasman training flights from the end of next week?

Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet.

NZ returns to SIN officially from January 6th.

http://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/press...alliance-on-sale-from-25-september

Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines have confirmed 6 January 2015 as the launch date for their alliance, with codeshare flights going on sale on both airlines’ services between New Zealand and Singapore on 25 September.

OKS arrives in AKL in the early hours of Saturday morning...one day before NZF. OKE is currently in for a D Check & upgrade...due out in November. Two aircraft are required for the AKL-SIN route.

Looking at the network map of the NZ/SQ alliance on the Air NZ website shows no Indian routes....

http://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/asset...ce-network-and-connections-map.pdf

Wasn't the access to SQ & MI's vast Indian network one of the major reasons for the alliance in the first place?

There are quite a few discrepancies from the January announcement. France, Maldives and a few others are also not on the map. Copenhagen is on the map but Denmark was not on the January presentation. There are no frequent flyer benefits on SilkAir other than earn and burn.
