I've taken a few flights between AU and NZ since the opening. Some flights are really busy but many are rather empty.

I'm sure it generating enough bookings but obviously, the peak was just after the announcement of the bubble. Similar to domestic Australian travel it's taken a while to rebound (the first few months...

Hmmm... who would have thought. They'd planned to use VA aircraft but VA doesn't have enough for their own domestic operations let alone trans tasman or wet-leased for this rubbish. I'm actually sad...

It'll be interesting to see if anyone actually travels from AU to NZ on the 18th. NZ860 (SYD-AKL) had quite a few booked on it but now just a single seat is selected in Economy, I wonder if that...

Air NZ seems to be adding more flights from the start of May. Some routes that were 5-6x weekly have increased to 7-9x weekly. A good sign on the demand I guess!

Air New Zealand wifi has been working across the Tasman. I've used it on some of their A320neo flights late last year with no problem, speeds are not quite as good as Qantas but you can expect...

Well, it looks like Air NZ was right with April 19. Prices have also dropped in the last half hour to somewhat normal levels.

It seems they're still playing around with the schedule. Brisbane to Christchurch was originally loaded in as 1x daily operated by A320neo's. This seems to have changed to 9x weekly with a mix of...

Perhaps it'll come back but with a worse exchange rate.

I don't think this arrangement was making them money because they'd have to pay SQ for the points but possibly the amount they were paying...

A helpful hint for anyone searching for 787 flights, or for a specific aircraft type (like an A320neo or something else).
