    Good on them for doing the decent thing. Pretty sure in similar circumstances AIR has almost always apologised and simply cancelled the tickets and refunded the money which is poor form in my opinion.

    I understand a while back that AIR reduced their experience level for new entrants from 1500 hours to 600 but that's still an awful lot of hours to acquire even after graduating from aviation college with a CPL.

    Another perspective on the strike that almost, but didn't, happen last year

    Just flew AIR to Nelson and return - no safety video to watch so have not seen the latest one or bothered to search for it.
    However good (limited for the flight) service - slightly better on return - both flights full both ways - maybe a few seats spare going -(2nd Jan).

    Very, very sad. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/a...ectid=12190561
    I would like to think an airline with more established procedures would have taken more responsive action.

    Nowhere does it mention what the boy actually died of.
    You would think that 30min out you'd turn around but then I don't have the facts that the pilot had.

    It says he had an asthma attack which began 30 mins into the flight. It's not uncommon and they probably would have spent some time trying to treat him with what they have onboard (which is usually a fairly extensive kit). That would have taken some time and probably during which they passed the point of no return. Quite why they didn't divert to Tonga I'm not sure, that must have been on the cards as he died only 20 min from Samoa.

    Air NZ still got unexpected 787 engine issues. just received this email today for Sunday flight:

    "Air New Zealand would like to advise that due to engineering requirements the Boeing 787-9 V2 aircraft scheduled to operate your flight, NZ87 from Auckland to Hong Kong, is no longer available..."

    I've flown to Japan a few times on the 787 and really like the plane, but more than happy to be on a 777 for our flights to/from Canada later this year.
