Well out of the blue, 2 test flights on 5/10. The first one 53 minutes KPAE-KPAE, and the second KPAE/KMWH/KPAE. This was actually 2 flights, 2hr14min, then 20min at KMWH and 43min back to KPAE.

Also ZK-NZL is on its delivery flight KIAH/NZAA as ANZ6094, due in AKL at 19.30 today

Hi Greg,

Have you heard anything about ZNE-ZNH being in a different configuration?? I vaguely remember reading something somewhere that they would be different??

ANZ's first group of 789's are 302 seats whereas NZL on delivery now has only 275.

Hi all, there is a good video on youtube of ZNA doing a flight check. The link is as follows:

I read in the Australian Aviation mag that ANZ were taking delivery of 3 787-9 in 275 pax configuration , NZL is obviously the first with this seating .

There are 5 that will have the increased premium seating cabins, apparently more of a demand for business and PE, not surprising really given most of the NZ flights are long haul.
