In 1978, Air New Zealand merged with a subsidiary to further the growth and expansion of a single national carrier. In 1989, the airline was privatized, and in the early 2000s, Air New Zealand announced its intention to acquire 50% of Ansett Australia. As it turned out later, this decision was not the most successful and, in the end, the company suffered losses.

In 2001 was Air New Zealand has been re-nationalized to avoid bankruptcy. A year later, the company management decided to reconfigure the company's activities and to develop further on another business model as a budget airline. This decision proved to be more than right and brought the company high profit. At the same time orders for the purchase of new jet aircraft were made.

Flight attendants, of course, not as nice as in the pictures, but people - gold! Assist, explain and do for you all that is in their power. Highly recommend!

Even in the three-hour flight well fed. Flight attendants attentive and smiling. Only the lack of business-class, and you can suffer because the service is worth the minuses.

Flew home to Moscow airport delay was already on 50 minutes, which is very surprising, always believed that they debugged all the details. And the rest of the flight went perfectly normal. All the necessary food, and wet wipes were given, at the same time, and took off and landed smoothly.

Most liked the speed of service, which is not worse than the planes of the international class. I recommend!

Flew with this airline many times. The last flight from Los Angeles to Auckland. We could fly in transit through China or Korea, but we chose to dock in LA, where we had to stay for a whole week. First there was a flight from Moscow (Aeroflot), then the Air NZ flight from London to Oakland with a landing in Los Angeles. In appearance, the Boeing 777-300ER ZK-OKP looks relatively new. Part of the British descended in America, in Los Angeles there were few passengers - about 70-80 people. The aircraft was filled approximately by 70%. Quite comfortable flight. During sleep I was located at 3 places. Food is enough (especially after Aeroflot), the crew is excellent, no turbulence was observed. The flight is completely satisfied. However, if there were no entertainment on the plane, it would be boring. The air-conditioning is weak, so it was stuffy on board. In general, the airline is not bad. Soon again I will use her services, accomplish the results.
