Air Canada 747s To New Zealand

Fri Mar 09, 2001 1:27 pm

Air New Zealand will be performing maintenance on Air Canada's 747-400s. Maintenance will be performed in March and May, 2001, and March, 2002. Flights will route Toronto-Los Angeles-Auckland with the first flight being March 8th. On these flights, Air Canada will be able to carry passengers and cargo between Toronto and Los Angeles but cargo only on to Auckland.

I never heard anything about this until now but I am a regular visitor to AKL so I will keep an eye out.
I heard Virgins new 744's will come to AKL for maintinence before they enter servive though.
