You can't beat Wellington on a Good Day, and it was a pearler this morning as I waited for my flight to Auckland. Here are few interesting movements over half an hour:
Originair are back flying again after Jetstar's exit from their regional routes. ZK-JSH
arrived on a scheduled flight from Nelson around 9 am.
Air New Zealand's fairly new ATR 72-600 ZK-MZA departed.
Bombardier CL-600 Challenger 604 VH-BLM arrived. This is owned by BC Aviation of Auckland and operated by BDC Aviation of Sydney.
And my Jetstar ride to Auckland, Airbus A 320 VH-VFO
arrived. It was late (which I have found is unusual for Jetstar), but the explanation was interesting - both the cabin manager and the pilot advised that the aircraft had been delayed by cleaning after arriving from Australia this morning. VH-VFO is not configured for international flights as it does not have seat back in-flight entertainment screens, so I don't understand it flying across the Tasman (maybe it was a positioning flight?).
And when I was in the Jetstar lounge Air New Zealand's latest Airbus A 321 ZK-NNG
taxied out on an internal flight.
It was a bit challenging getting photos through 2 walls of glass and dodging in between passing passengers!
VH-VFO did Melbourne-Auckland in the early hours of this morning. Believe they still use them international even if they don't have Entertainment screens, as i'm pretty sure my flight in VH-VFD had no screens and it was Auckland-Melbourne...ReplyDelete
The entire Jetstar Airbus fleet do not have screens........ As they are a low cost carrier.ReplyDelete
Thanks for that JordanReplyDelete
