Has anyone else heard that PX may be operating POM-AKL-POM in the coming months??
Nothing has been released as yet that I can find. Would be great if they do, although I can't imagine it would last long.

Back in the B707 days PX operated charters POM AKL POM once a month which became an RPT... which became a tripartite service POM AKL POM HKG POM with TE and CX. The only carrier not making money on the run was PX!!

Been talk about this for a while now, given the amount of touring Kiwis in PNG it could be a little money spinner, also rumour going around that they may be considering going to Melbourne as well.

Air NG doesn't make money anyway.

It is funded by the PNG government who in turn use handouts from other nations such as Australia to run it.

It will succeed no matter what.

Mebourne and Auckland were both talked about as 737 routes with the -700, or the -800 when it arrived

Denpasar was another one.

Don't know what the thinking is now, I escaped PX a few months ago now.

I did hear the CEO had resigned though

Interesting that they haven't dropped a 767 which I thought was going to be the case when they acquired the 737.

New acting CEO I hear, ex GMFO who I think will do a good job.

What happened to the Falcon, has that been sold or is it being operated from an offshore port to avoid the local PNG media?

Back in 93/94 I flew PX AKL-POM-AKL on the A310.
First time I had ever been overseas. Arriving at Jacksons :uhoh::mad::suspect::ooh::yuk::sad::E:}:confused::eek: all within the first day..then I guess the place started to 'grow' on me :p

So Danny has the job for now?

As long as it isn't the muppet from engineering.

Just checked in Sabre for availabilities July through December.

On link to the PX system, not a sausage.

If it is intended it has definitely not been promulgated.

Best all

PX could always operate adhoc/seasonal to AKL.

One could say most of PX's operations are adhoc :ok:
