NZ announce AKL-IAH from December

Wed Apr 15, 2015 4:29 pm

"Mayor Parker and Aviation director to make major announcement concerning new air service at George Bush Intercontinental Airport"

http://www.houstongovnewsroom.org/go/doc/2155/2491438/

This ties in perfectly with NZ making their announcement of a new mainland USA destination on Thursday morning (NZ time) 16/04 with the potential destinations being IAH, ORD or LAS.

"Air New Zealand is to announce a new mainland United States destination tomorrow morning"

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/n...ticle.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11432607

If it is, i'm glad to see this one finally come to fruition after countless years of speculation. First the route was proposed by CO, then dropped. Then more recently rumoured for NZ to fly it.

While I wanna say it's 100% going to be NZ, there's always that slight chance that IAH and NZ just so happen to have similar announcement times and neither one have to do with the other. But expect NZ at about 2:30 today

It's obviously going to be Air New Zealand.


Both article point the obvious. One is saying Houston is getting new air service while the other says Air New Zealand is going to announce a new US city. Which NZ had 3 in mind. IAH, ORD, LAS.


Congrats to IAH and NZ! Makes sense since IAH is a Star Alliance hub.

IAH does not have the infrastructure to accommodate new intl service. Terminal D is packed at all times, most of the long-hauls go on hard stands departing from that terminal.

UA didn't think it was worth going through with this route. It'll be interesting to see, if this is indeed the announcement that will be made, how this route pans out.

Quoting byronicle6 (Thread starter):

I still don't understand LAS, since they fly to LAX, which is so close. Service to DEN to tie in with the UA hub would make infinitely more sense.

This route just makes total sense. And at only 7400mi, the payload penalty is much lower on the westbound leg compared to QF's similar service.

If it is actually new NZ service, the terminal space might not be an issue since most South Pacific flights operate at traditionally non-peak hours. With a late evening departure, they might even use a UA gate in E to make connections a bit easier and have access to a *A lounge/Club close by.

Once again, you are completely wrong. International departures never take place on a handstand. Ever.

Some "claim" YYZ to be part of that club because they count the "direct" YYZ-YVR-SYD service, which in my opinion is really stretching the truth

Now someone will come and lecture us how the continent is "Australia", so therefore AKL doesn't count.

Probably a 77E. Wont be 789 (as NZ has stated the new route would be on a '777') and will only be 77W if they take it off LAX or SFO (unlikely)

Edited to add: The current NZ 789 is in a very high density layout which isn't very suitable for the North America market. Plus, all NZ 789 for the rest of the year are accounted for, and since NZ is switching SIN from 77E to 789, there is some slack in the 77E fleet.

The published max range for a 789 is 8300 nm and the GC distance for IAH-AKL is 7415 nm. Thus it is easily within the reach.

789? Easily. UA's 789 plows LAX-MEL everyday (which I believe is longer)

In terms of testing new routes, NZ 789 may be better, but maybe ETOPS maturity is what's driving NZ to use 77E instead (my guess here)

UA is already flying SFO to SYD on a 77E (7,417 mi via GCMAP). Ditto for LAX which is a bit shorter. Given the current a/c allocation for NZ on the 77W, looks like a 77E route.

Was there talk about NZ outfitting some of their 789s to a less dense long haul configuration in the future?

Agreed, most likely scenario though the airline is touted to have 2 new 77W's in the frame. Their 77E's have recently been re-equipped to ETOPS-330 standard which safely clears them over the black hole in the eastern parts of the tropical Pacific. Also, the 77E is configured with a higher ratio of premium classes (J and Y+) than the 789 and is less of a risk for a new route than the similarly configured but larger 77W... this configuration is what NZ has figured is right for North American routes.

Congratulations to NZ and IAH, and to partner UA.

Edit: announcement to be made this morning 0730 NZST.

I saw yesterday in the NZ thread that an announcement is expected 07:30 New Zealand time but if I have worked the time difference correctly that's about 90 minutes prior to the time mentioned in the link. I have to admit that 07:30 seemed very early in the morning for an announcement, but it came from a very reliable source. I'm still sure it's the same announcement in both cities, i.e. NZ to IAH , but surprised it's not simultaneous. ( unless maybe 07:30 is when NZ employees are officially advised with a public announcement to follow )

UA's Smisek was going to punish IAH by taking away the NZ route and they did. How will this route fit in with the "punishment" meted out by Smisek (if it is true that Air NZ will be new carrier).

Since WN was granted permission to fly internationally Spirit is giving new competition to the WN international routes and Spirit is in IAH. So for UA, you now have Spirit, which would started international service whether WN does or not.

Yep and back in the 90s, when HAS was begging for new int'l service, one of their big selling points was how much quicker and smoother clearing customs and immigration was compared to MIA.

That's not HAS's shop--it's a Federal deal.

And to the prior point made about WN and international service at HOU and UA's subsequent tantrum, the point was then and remains valid now that there just isn't enough inspection throughput. The City of Houston made a decision that really wasn't valid to make since FIS headcount has to be shared between IAH/HOU/Port of Houston. This was made very clear since there was allegedly a hiring freeze on the federal level.

UA mishandled the whole WN/HOU thing entirely.

Now NZ going to run IAH too is just icing on that cake. A good business lesson for everyone, really.

I am elated to see UA dragging their feet on int'l ops from IAH, as you say "win-win-win". The big question is how long will it last?

Is there really much UA can do at this point? They tried a second daily to NRT, and pulled that. IAH's O/D numbers on many routes are often smaller than those seen at DFW and ATL. I can't imagine that you're going to see 2nd dailies to PEK, IST, TPE, or now AKL any time soon. All UA can do, IMHO, is to grow in markets where another airline hasn't already staked a claim, like PVG, but they chose to go double-daily from SFO before starting IAH.
