AirNZ are now allowing small electronic devices switched to flight to be used during take off and landing on Q300s.

I assume there has been a regulatory change of some kind.

It's more that they've submitted certification to CAA for the type. This was announced last week by Air NZ for the ATR72, Q300 and B1900. The only aircraft in their fleet without certification is the 763.

Oh. You just had to bring up the 767 didn't you....

About bloody time, and yay!




Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Yep. Due to my job I tend to end up on the 767 more than other aircraft in the Air New Zealand fleet.

This topic has gotten way off topic and is probably in breach of the F.U.G.

Perhaps @scottpalmer should lock it.

The worm has turned. It sounds like @sbiddle prefers Airbus these days so he can use his electronic devices at all times.

Cheers, Matt.

You started it by feeding the troll ;-)

Then spelt my username wrong.

And yes, we all know @sbiddle changes his allegiances more often than he changes his bridge. 26 hours in 772 refit 3-4-3 will have him back loving the 763 in no time.

Now back on topic!

Well it was news to me until my flight yesterday.  I could have hugged the hosty wth joy - but the judge said i shouldn't do that anymore.

Same deal for me last weekend in a 772 and A320 to/from Brisbane. No idea when the change happened though.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

The A320, 787 and 777 changed in April 2014 so this has been the case for more than a year. You are correct Mike. Hugging flight attendants is frowned upon.

Woooh! Living in Palmy North means getting on those dam atr's a few times a week.
Looking forward to Monday so I can sit down and put my head phones. Making small talk with strangers becomes such a chore after a while!... People need to treat planes like a lift, it's only a short time. I don't want your life story.
