When flights kick off again, airlines will probably schedule the smallest aircraft they can on routes, for example, that are one a day, even if it had to make a stop.

They don’t want to put a 300 seater & sell only 100 seats, when a 150 seater could have done the job.

When demand increases, they can put on a bigger aircraft.

Air NZ is in an enviable position of having plenty of options in choice of aircraft.

As far as long haul in a 737 ….

I remember an airline, that flew EU to Thailand in a 737, with 1 stop. I think it was Enter air.

A one stop AKL/LAX will probably not happen, but point was, it is possible.
