Notes for 10-October

Air New Zealand

Period 15-August-2009 to 09-October-2009

During the period since my last post Air New Zealand have been noted making a large number of positioning flights between Auckland and Christchurch with their A320 fleet, some have been done with scheduled services, while others have been straight relocation flights. I wont list them all here as they aren't all that interesting.

However on Wednesday 09-September-2009 ZK-OJM operated a charter flight AKL-WLG as NZ1911, then positioned to CHC as NZ6611, Friday 11-September-2009 saw ZK-OJH also operate a positioning flight AKL-WLG as NZ6613 and charter back to AKL as NZ1912. These charters were associated with the General Secretary of the Vietnamese Communist Party's visit to NZ

Trans-Tasman relocation/positioning flights noted during the period were as follows:
  • Saturday 22-August-2009 ZK-OJB SYD-AKL NZ6314
  • Friday 09-October-2009 ZK-OJB operated NZ769 WLG-BNE then went u/s before ferrying to AKL later that evening as NZ6849
  • Friday 09-October-2009 ZK-OJC was noted operating to/from AKL as NZ6840
Maintenance was undertaken on ZK-OJE from Monday 31-August-2009 until Monday 21-September-2009. This was to correct the wing fairing issue, previously noted in several A320 aircraft worldwide.

Tuesday 22-September-2009 saw ZK-OJF enter maintenance for the same issue.

Jetstar

Not much to report for JQ in this period the rotation of its fleet between Australian domestic, New Zealand domestic and Trans-Tasman flights continued.

The only change was in the usage of aircraft in the NZ domestic schedule.

The original useage had the 3 aircraft operating the following pattern
  • aircraft 1; CHC-AKL-CHC-AKL-CHC-WLG-CHC-AKL-CHC
  • aircraft 2; AKL-WLG-AKL-ZQN-CHC-AKL-CHC-AKL-CHC-AKL
  • aircraft 3; AKL-CHC-ZQN-AKL-WLG-AKL-WLG-AKL
this has recently been changed to the following pattern
  • aircraft 1; CHC-AKL-CHC-AKL-CHC-WLG-CHC-AKL-CHC
  • aircraft 2; AKL-WLG-AKL-ZQN-CHC-AKL-WLG-AKL
  • aircraft 3; AKL-CHC-ZQN-AKL-WLG-AKL-CHC-AKL-CHC-AKL
since the change to the patterns the final AKL-CHC-AKL flight of the day JQ257/258 has operated on time most days, this had been regularly delayed under the previous pattern.
