Another SYD-AKL "Rapidair Down Under". Looks like the new route is doing well.

Doing so well that it was up-gauged to a 77W.

Curious which A330 FIN's have been converted. Seems it is the newer birds (the Lions) that have been flying the cargo routes.

We booked our first AC 777 charter from PVG for a date in about 10 days. I asked if passengers were allowed onboard and was told no since there are no FA's.

Now just need to figure out how to get them to post the AQD to my account.

Congrats!

Seeing some photos of this would be seriously cool (obviously planep0rn as opposed to contents and such) ✈️✈️✈️

The Lev, you should ask AC what the cost would be to carry a few pax on the flight.
Passengers on one side of the cabin, crew rest on the other.

Hopefully you're stuff gets picked up faster than this stuff sitting on the ramp at YVR.....

I think you asked the wrong question. You should have asked where the Payload Supervisor, who keeps an eye on your company's important and high-value cargo, will sit while performing this critical task

For those of you keeping score at home , AC 7218 SYD-AKL, another "Rapidair Down Under" 77W, arrived a short while ago in AKL.

Meanwhile.....
