So far confirmed availablity is nil on flights to SIN, PVG, and now most of NA. Sounds like we are out of luck.
And yet many people could only justify paying NZ's high prices for premium seats because they're offset by some cheaper flights from advance upgrades. If NZ take away advance upgrades, they may lose those people and their paid fares altogether.
