    Not likely. CEO will be appointed by the parent, ANZ Bank, and they will want a banker, ie one of their own choice, in the CEO's job.

    Whats so sacrosanct about a banker in the job.?.
    many of them have stuffed up.
    Rbnz would have to “approve the person as being capable of doing the job”
    But that doesn’t say he or she has to be a banker.

    Moving back to AIR, interesting to see where yields head with all these discounted airfares in the past few months. Some of the lowest prices I have ever seen on AIR. Instead of being a premium over the competition for once they have been the cheapest by some margin.

    The best thing Wing Commander Luxon did was pull the rip cord on Virgin(Under Arm Bowlers Division) and push them out of the plane.

    His biggest missed opportunity was failing to flog Cullen Airlines off to Etihad when they were paying silly money for airlines. Now that Etihad is in a financial stall the taxpayers could have brought it back at a large discount. Think of the transaction as a reverse Cullen.

    If I was the Emir of Etihad I would be offering Wing Commander Luxon gold frankincense and myr to entice him to take on the job of sorting out Etihad.

    He could even offer Michael Cullen a supporting role where he would hide in a cupboard and when the Wing Commander wanted advice he opens the door asks for advice and then does the opposite.

    Interesting news out of the Paris Air Show, the new A321 XLR has been announced, a slighter longer range aircraft with better economy on this mid distance trips. Qantas and Air Asia converting their A321 orders into the XLR variant. I wonder if AIR would do the same, especially given the competition with Jetstar. It would give them huge coverage in the Asia market.

    Asia is not "mid distance"

    Come home to all the noise on the Koru lounges, just reminds me how badly this airline, in some aspects, has been run for a long time.

    Co-incidence hopefully.

    Family member had an int experience a week or so ago here. The plane couldn't take off because they couldn't shut the door! Seems the closest engineers were in Ch Ch!!? so they had to disembark and wait for another plane.

    It is happening far more than I am comfortable with. I have had more than a few reports of flights cancelled or postponed this last year due to problems, from both Jetstar and AIR. People having to drive from Napier to Auckland to get their connecting flights. I am a little hesitant in investing in AIR for this reason. I do wonder if this is just me, or is it happening more frequently

    Recently flew AIR International and not impressed with all the hidden extra charges for seats/food etc.

    A downwards slide in service, plus trends like 'Flight Shame' (click here) could make future headwinds for AIR.

    Take care holders.

    Will be trying out Air NZ's long haul service to Chicago next month. I noticed while booking that they've included all the meals/entertainment in the basic fare (but maybe this has always been the case with the long haul flights).

    My return flight was $400 so could really say no to a bargain.

    Travelled with Singapore Airlines back from London in May so it will be good to compare (as I thought Singapore was excellent)

    Discovered I am flying out of Baku tomorrow on a E190 and I am hoping that it is this one:



    Air Astana Snow Leopard


    Which made me wonder: Why do Air NZ not have any planes painted up as Kiwi, Kakapo etc?

    As for flight shame:
    I have been asked how long the ferry takes from New Zealand to Australia on several occasions over the last few months, but at the end of the day if you want to get into or out of NZ you need to get on a plane, and if you want to get around God's Own then you either have plenty of time or you need to get on a plane.

    Still the future of AIR is that of any airline, highly volatile.
