There could be another Air

NZ 789 route about the 17 Jun 2016.

From 17 Jun to 30 Jul

AKL-

SIN is a 77E instead of a 789. This may be due to 77E repaints in

SIN. Five 77E's can be repainted at 14 day intervals between 03 Jun and 13 Aug with only one positioning flight in each direction necessary.

The 7th 789

ZK-NZI is due to be delivered on 15 Jul, so probably arrives

AKL 17 Jul and starts off with a few

AKL-

SYD/

BNE about 24 Jul and is ready for long haul by 31 Jul when

AKL-

SIN reverts back to a 789.

This means that from 17 Jun a 789 is available for another long haul route. This is how the nine 789's are looking.

From what 'sunrisevalley' said about EDTO 240 on the 789 being approved about May 2015, then EDTO 330 should be achieved 12 months later about May 2016.
