Coming back to topic, Air New Zealand already announced their 5 772's are being retired and the 773's were going to be parked up, possibly to return. If they don't they'll be replaced with 787's. Seems to be a bit of a theme.
well thatís sort of part of the reduce costs at all costs Walmart/standard business practice 21st century model. Thereís a few problems with that plan a/ theyíve made approaches with lease firms and desert storage outfits about disposal of the 200s and they canít get rid of them. Some have been bubble wrapped for long term storage at NZ airports now..parking fees have necessitated the 300s find work..itís cheaper to run them at break even than pay parking fees. and..b/ the trouble with the 787 is that the issues with the rollers havenít gone away and cargo is the white horse at the moment and the 78 canít carry any
