Air NZ cancels dozens of Australian flights over Dreamliner engine woes

Air New Zealand is cancelling dozens of international flights in and out of Australia due to ongoing problems affecting Boeing Dreamliner engines globally.

On Monday, the airline said it would suspend its twice-weekly seasonal Christchurch-Perth service, resulting in the cancellation of 62 flights.

It will also cancel its second daily Auckland-Perth service from December 10 until January 5, 2020, the airline said in a statement sent to media. Auckland-Sydney services and Auckland-Tonga services have also been cancelled.

Since late 2017, Air New Zealand and other international airlines flying Dreamliners have been plagued by issues affecting Rolls-Royce engines fitted to the modern aircraft.

Boeing has certainly ruined its reputation. It has dropped the ball big time.

Why Boeing? Last time I checked they did not manufacture the engines they are RR.
