3 of our 773’s have been kept in Auckland, the other 4 are offshore. There has been some engine corrosion reported, but the severity and cost of repairs appear to depend on who you’re talking to.

777 Reactivation is still planned for 2022 with Courses commencing this month (January). They’ll mostly just be covering 787’s getting their wings painted so I assume they’ve got enough good engines to get 2-3 up and running.

Long term, the 772’s are already gone while the 773’s are planned to fly until 2027. With a MTOW increase the 787-10 looks to be a solid replacement for us as the 777X is too big.
