Default Air NZ to head to JFK

NZ today announced direct JFK flights ex AKL, using 787-9 aircraft, no doubt QF will be watching that one closely!

Default A350 v B787

It is very difficult to see how Boeing can compete on Sunrise with the 777 variants given all the current issues.
As much as anything, I think the effective air pressure might be better on the 350, as I felt more fresh after these flights than the 787. I was also conscious of the lower engine noise on the 350 compared to 330, whereas on 787 I did not notice it being significantly quieter than 777.

Personal choice ultimately, I expect.

ZNJ has moved to the Fuel Dock and commenced APU testing.

That's certainly an interesting teaser, Todd that us very curious spotters can contemplate for the next 24+ days, as the Dubai Air Show is on from 17 - 21 November, 2019.

Is the news to do with a visit by ZNJ, more orders for 789s, Project Sunrise winning aircraft and an order, new routes, 100th year celebrations, personnel changes or ???

To be honest the rumours are varied. And don’t hold me to anything. They are only rumours and I’ll wait till I see anything before I believe anything.
Sorry I can’t offer more.

NZ's flights are to EWR, not JFK ex AKL (but still to the New York market).

It would seem VH-ZNI is doing its first revenue flight tonight.

QF95 is scheduled to leave from Gate 7

QF10 is scheduled to arrive at Gate 14A.

Normally QF10 turns around to either QF95 / QF49 but tonight they are from different gates.

Great detective work, Alex. ZNI is indeed operating QF95 this evening from MEL - LAX as its first revenue flight and has just crossed the border into NSW.
