A last few from Dunedin

While my first day at Dunedin was great for plane spotting the rest of the week was a wash out... 

Caught departing on the day I arrived was Virgin Samoa's Boeing 737-800 ZK-PBF on 9 February 2014

Later the same evening Air New Zealand's Boeing 737-300 ZK-NGD was caught on arrival.
The only other photo for the week was Airwork's Metroliner ZK-POB doing a NZ Post service caught as I was boarding the flight back to Auckland on 13 February 2014

Our group flew back to Auckland last night on NZ678... I must say the cabin crew were ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. Sadly the late flights to and from Dunedin is up for the chop when the Airbus 320s take over... Our flight was practically full! I think the Otago Daily Times are right to complain... 

It seems as soon as Dunedin makes progress with its air services - and domestically they have improved again in recent years, particularly to Auckland - they deteriorate once more... The Otago Chamber of Commerce has received complaints about the new timetable. Business people and other travellers should make their dismay and frustration known directly and unequivocally to Air New Zealand, too. The company should also know that its decisions affect goodwill and could even influence Dunedin purchasing decisions on international flights - and wherever there is genuine competition.
