To follow in Blue Bus's wheel-tracks, first I had to get to Wellington, and I enjoyed a pleasant flight down with Air New Zealand. I was fortunate to be allocated window seat 3A.
Our aircraft for Flight NZ 439 was their newest A 320: ZK-OXK.
Window seat 3A enabled good views of a couple of big brother heavies -Emirates A 380 A6-EEL.
and Singapore Airlines A 380 9V-SKK.
A takeoff view showing six of Air New Zealand's domestic A 320s at the terminal, plus us makes seven!.
Turning onto finals allowed an oblique shot of the airport.
