From KPAE Paine Field Blog

ZB282 (ZNM) Qantas 787-9 line 1051 was moved out of the 45-12 this week, EME rework complete. Delivery flight scheduled for June 28.

I’m wondering if that date is a typo & it should be May 28th as Qantas needs ZNM to commence Syd-Auckland-NY which starts in Mid June?

I would have thought the recent arrival of ZNL would cover this new thrice weekly service.

See also my post #1066 re delivery of ZNM. Even if ZNM arrives earlier, it should be noted that ZNL has just spent 12 days in pre service mods/checks.

Edit: As to the KPAE Paine Field Blog post, ZNM is ZB281 not ZB282. ZNN (ZB282) painted all white bar its tail, is not due into paint shop until 30th May.

JFK commencing 14 June and FCO commencing 17 June would most likely have required both ZNL and ZNM to be in service.

ZNF has been out of service in MEL since the 12th and appears to have caused the cancellation of that day's QF93.

I assume the procession through PUS will continue at some point as well? Perhaps once ZNN arrives?

Any reason why ZNF is out of action in MEL?

ZNB repositioned MEL-AKL as QF6011 yesterday (16/5) and is now (17/5) flying AKL-SYD as QF6012 (according to Flightaware). Anyone the reason of the repositioning flights?

ZNA is currently on its way to PUS for repainting as QF6019, should be back towards the end of the month/early June. ZND will then go in for repainting shortly after.
