Final boarding...

Air New Zealand retires its Boeing 767 fleet today with Boeing 767-300 ZK-NCI flying Auckland-Sydney-Auckland tonight as NZ105/108...

I've loved my flights on Air New Zealand's 767s... A comfortable airliner which has given the national carrier great service.

  1. Will you be on NZ105/108 today?

    Yes, the B767's have been a great for Air NZ international route expansions of the late 1980's and 1990's, backing up the B747-200/B747-400's.

    With Air NZ leasing the 13th B787-9 with delivery late 2019, like with the B767's, the B787's will be the workhouse for Air NZ's future medium to long haul services, backing up the B777's.

    I wonder if Air NZ will be an all B787-9/B787-10 operator for medium to long haul international services?

  2. No Kris... I'm sitting at my desk!
