I can't tell you much about them but here's something you might want to take a look at if you're interested: http://www.airsidetv.com/main/default.asp - just look for the Air New Zealand Flight video. I've watched it quite a few times.

yea there the country's airliner

there not that big,

if your wondering about a job there, they only take people who citizens of New Zealand

and just like in australia, they have an over load of pilots

they operate a fleet or 747-400's and 777 for the longer haul internations, 767s, a320s for the shorter international flights, and 737s, dash8s, saab340s and i think maybe beech 1900's and BAE146's for the regional trips.

They also bought ansett australia a fair few years back, but bad management by that company made it go bust, and greatly reduced employment prospect into the airliners in australia

now all that remains is 3 airliners: qantas, jetstar and virgin
abou 50-60% of qantas pilots now were ex ansett

Air New Zealands main hub is NZAA(Auckland)
They currently operate the B747-400, B777-200ER,B767-300ER(that is going to be replaced by 787s-air nz is the launch customer of the 787-9), A320, B737-300(phasing out), ATR-500, Q300, S340A(phasing out), Beech 1900D.

Air New Zealand operates the 747,777,767, and a320
Air New Zealand National Operates the 737
Mount Cook Airline operates the ATRs from Christchurch
Air Nelson operates the S340A and Q300 from Nelson
Eagles Air operates the B1900D from Hamilton

Air New Zealand operates to 26 Domestic Destinations, 6 Australian Destinations, 9 Pacific Island Destinations, 5 Asian Destinations, 3 USA Destinations and 1 European Destination.

They are the only airline to operate a true around the world service as they serve London via both Hong Kong and Los Angeles therefore making it possible to travel around the world on one carrier

Any more questions I would be happy to answer

Cheers

I have NZ Permanent Residency and NZ CPL, but next trip I will switch my FAA ATP to a NZ as well. I know it has been awhile on any pool activity, but just wondering what generally hiring is like. I know some things are washy, like waiting for more of 777 to come in and Nelson switching to the Qs, and 767 phasing out.... but anything else??

Nia, I love flying on Air New Zealand! I've had nothing but great flights between SFO/LAX and Auckland, as well as flights between Christchurch and Auckland. The crew and ground staff have always been friendly and pleasant. Love those first class beds as well...

Funny that this thread should pop up as I just spent the whole weekend sailing on the bay and playing in San Francisco with some of my Kiwi friends, who are here visiting.

I love New Zealand. Maybe I'll see you sometime on an Air New Zealand flight. Best of luck with your training.
