    Just one thing to note Rodger... AIRs new A321's also have 29" seat pitch for some of the economy rows... Pitch varies between 33"-29"

    Probably made them narrower as well?

    Variable pitch in the A320's too. Pays to ante up another $10 for a better window seat with better pitch in my opinion, ($15 extra on an ancient Jetheap A320)

    Hmmmm... I would hope that whoever is in charge of obtaining the necessary approval faces very serious disciplinary action over this. Cost of this aborted flight must surely run into a six figure sum.

    From my understanding it was a code 2 787 used for that particular flight.
    Code 2 787's we're not originally intended to be flown to PVG so I assume the Chinese approvals for those particular aircraft in the fleet weren't applied for.
    So sounds like a scheduling cock up...
    Shouldn't happen... However with the on going 787 engine issues the airline is still under pressure to keep the schedule on track..
    Maybe that was the only aircraft available and the Chinese approval was overlooked? That's just my speculation.. However like I said... Shouldn't have happened...

    I don't think so. Wishful thinking though by some. Including Richard Harman speculating on his website Politik.

    No I'm not on the stuff web site, just given the Huawei - five eyes situation has caused a number of administrative hard lines from China on New Zealand of late. It would have to be a major over site otherwise.

    And today..the latest double speak...

    and again today...

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/pol...r-tourism-snub


    The airline has accepted full responsibility for the administrative error", but a slightly conflicting statement at the outset appeared to suggest the plane did not take off before Chinese authorities had in fact, approved the flight plan.

    time to wise up...

    As I said, wishful thinking by some. Sounds like that includes yourself.

    No rational again behind your comments, perhaps if you were international trade you would see it...

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/a...ectid=12202902 I find this more than a little interesting in the context of the Chinese turnaround incident. Public knowledge that the airline is majority owned by the Govt. Looks like any excuse for them to give Kiwi's "the bird" at present is a good one.

    We need to stand up against Chinas soft invasion, no doubt about that. Taiwan is between rock and a hard place though, soon to be taken back by force , this year maybe.Just one more big uncertainty cloud on the Investment horizon.
