Default Air New Zealand Flights Turned Around

An Air New Zealand Airbus A321neo on its delivery flight from Hamburg Germany to Auckland New Zealand was forced to turn back to Hamburg as it did not have the clearance to fly over Iranian airspace. This occurred on 15th February 4 hours into the flight
This is the 2nd New Zealand aircraft that had to turn around this month. The other happened on 10th February. The flight was flight NZ289 from Auckland to Shanghai China. This time the aircraft operating this service was not authorised to land in China. The aircraft was turned around about 6 hours into the flight.
