Anyone got/seen any photos of OKI?

I guess it's just going to sit at Auckland airport for the next month before starting the HNL flights.

Would expect to see if do a couple of trail short-haul trips before being put on AKL-HNL, maybe on the AKL-CHC widebody runs or some AKL-SYD sectors.

Anyone know/is there any way of telling whether the aircraft on AKL-EZE will be ANZ or leased? Showing as 777-200. Thanks

Check https://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/trav...6s1koFHLIXoBTb and click the relevant month. It will list any changes. If not listed will be an AirNZ 772.

It won't be the leased Boeing supplied ex SQ 777.

I assume for this route the 777 requires a high ETOPS rating which NZ managed by fitting 4 owned 777-200ER with some extra fire protection.
If this is the case then you will not get the leased exSQ bird.

I think the ex SQ bird is sitting outside the AKL hangar now. I saw it on the way out. It basically just had the rudder with blue on it. I wasn't fast enough to get a good pic of it (so I'll give you a crappy one - it's behind the other NZ plane).

Yeah it was there on the weekend too, itís pretty much in full SQ branding. All they have done is remove the titles and logo.

Pleased to hear that I'll be on AirNZ metal - have flown Wgtn-Can-Singapore on SQ 772 and not very impressed.
What does the extra fire protection have to do with ETOPS rating though?

ThanksQ

Further from an airport need to be able to suppress a fire for longer before being able to land. (my guess I have never looked at the details of ETOPS).

Flights on polar routes have to have more cold weather kit etc.

There are more requirements than just engines in route planning.

Anyone know what's the go with NZ10 tonight?

It hasn't left Auckland and is expected to do so around midnight (~3 hours late). I'm flying soon and have a 3 hour layover in Honolulu before connecting to a domestic flight. Just hoping something like that doesn't happen otherwise I'll be forking out for a new domestic flight

Don't know what the issue is but OKF scheduled to fly it didn't fly to SYD and back today as scheduled.

Possibly to do with the Bali volcano disruptions, that affected a few NZ flights.
