So apparently, now 787's with specific engines are no longer allowed to fly more than 140 minutes from a diversionary airport from the 330KM previously allowed. This pretty much rules out all international flights from NZ on the 10 787's that AirNZ has.
Wondering what they are flying on the route AKL to HNL going forward until the issue is resolved?
I'd imagine this pretty much grounds all 787's for Air NZ.
Interestingly, Hawaiin Airlines also fly 787's this route. I haven't seen any advice on whether they are affected.
It seems like a long list of issues for this plane type. I have flown on them 3 times so far, all pleasant enough experiences, but as a nervous flyer at the best of times, I must admit my faith and therefore willingness to get on a 787 is being somewhat reduced.
