So, I was on my first couple of NZ
789 flights last week (returned yesterday), and it was a mixed bag:

tries to add extra cushioning, or seat width?
A huge issue for me - these seats were extremely hard and uncomfortable, even after 2 hours.
However, we had a Skycouch row both ways (two of us on AKL
in 38, and 3 on NRT
in 36). Seat pitch was great, and a million times better than the 77W "normal" rows. Are the "normal" (i.e. non Skycouch) seats on the 789 the same as on the 77W?
My partner is not flying a lot, and he loved the large windows and the service via screen menu. Though on the NRT
flight they ran out of snacks very quickly
He also loved the window tinting.
We also did a domestic KIX
on Peach, which was a great flight. Quite a bit better than JQ
, for example. And HND
in J on JL
, which was fab as well. Great seats (2 seater at the window), and funnily, J is only very little more than Y on JL
on domestic flights. Why anybody books Y I don't understand. The LCCs are MUCH cheaper though.

What is PR's service like? Worth flying with them to Cairns just to log another airline?
We only did a domestic return last year (MNL
), on RP
-C3228 and RP
-C8609. One was PR
and one was PAL
, and both were very comfortable. Service was, of course, minimal for such a short domestic leg, but we did get crackers and drinks both ways. On a 6-6 hour flight, I would give them a go. If you can do trans-Atlantic on a 757, you can do TT
on a n A320... While I use the PTVs, I also always have my iPad with me, and can easily preload tons of movies/TV shows.

Even during off peak times, it's usually a real pain.
I agree re peak time, but off-peak is a breeze. We arrived at 8:20am yesterday, and I had nobody in the immigration queue in front of me, and only one person in the customs queue. With priority luggage early on he belt, we were through in no time. The interesting part of the arrival was that it was my first time ever that I arrived at a remote stand and had a bus transfer to the terminal. Never had that in AKL
before - neither on NB
nor on WB aircraft.
