@AvWeekScho Air NZ CFO Thomson says 777-300s will be phased out “within this decade” (777-200s were permanently grounded last year). The -300s will be replaced by the 787-10s due from FY24. The airline is “set to have an all-787 fleet for our long-haul business” by FY27.
@AvWeekScho COVID has enabled Air NZ to accelerate fleet simplification plans, Thomson says. From 8 a/c types with 10 different engines in FY2011, to four a/c types with six engine types by FY27.
@AvWeekScho CEO Joyce said Qantas expects the A380s to be part of the fleet for “many years to come” – interesting contrast with the increasing number of carriers looking to phase out A380.
@AvWeekScho To extend the range of its A330-200s, Qantas is working with Airbus to increase the maximum takeoff weight to a higher certifiable limit. The higher weight limit – enabling more fuel to be carried – was not available when these aircraft entered service with Qantas.
@ByERussell Connect Airways, a U.S.-based startup that plans a Toronto hub, will launch with American Airlines — and its massive frequent flyer program — as a partner.
