Taupo? They're still flying AKL-TUO twice daily according to their website.

Air NZ dropped WLG-TUO - Sounds Are has picked it up, starting in June.

Thanks, that makes a bit more sense. The way it was worded in the article linked in post 196 made it sound as though they had canned Taupo as a destination altogether, rather than just dropping a single route. It actually stated :

Air New Zealand has stopped flying to Kaitaia, Whakatane, Westport and Taupo, citing unprofitability.

Sounds Air keep on growing. Wonder if Sounds Air would show any interest in MRO-AKL or maybe even MRO-CHC?

Apologies for asking, because I'm sure it's buried somewhere in a previous thread ( but as we know, the search function on this site couldn't find water if it fell out of a boat!). Which months are the 3 787-9s due in the financial year starting 1 July? I have the feeling they're all due in the first half FY , i. e. within the second half of this calendar year, is that correct?

They are due this calender year, all are accounted for in the NW schedules for SIN, PVG and additional NRT plus PER and NAN. I'm gonna say they are due in July, September and November but I could be wrong.

2016. Their first one is msn 049. msn 26 will go to TAM in DEC 2015. msn 28 to CX in Feb 2016. I see msn 52 going to UL is for delivery in early 2017 so I expect we might have 2-3 by Summer 2016/7. The 747s haven't been confirmed again yet but still expecting them

Right looks like it will be the second phase of A350 deliveries maybe in 2017 sometime, I initially thought they were getting more by then. Hopefully the 744s will make an appearance again.

In various press articles, there have been several mentions of discussions for MRO-WLG as a possible for Sounds.

The airline itself has talked about Greymouth - GMN-WLG - and also made noises about PMR, presumably to Blenheim - BHE.

I haven't seen any mention of them serving CHC, which surprises me just a little.

Dates are close, however the first two tail numbers need to change places.

NZD is first, third week in July, with NZC later in August.

Would never expect MRO-WLG as I've always thought AKL was a better destination. Would have thought a CHC - Picton - WLG route would work well for Sounds. Another option for CHC - WLG without directly competing with NZ/JQ and offering a scenic flight route. One day I'll fly to Picton with Sounds instead of taking the ferry and enjoy the view from above for a change.
