Dubai, Dallas and Amsterdam are all cities blessed by their geography. Each is accessible to continents, seemingly half way to everywhere and proximate to billions of people with a short flight. Auckland, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia are at the opposite end of the accessibility spectrum. Their remote location in the South Pacific requires an added level of creativity and complexity to cross to other continents by air.
Promised performance boosts to the 787 for Air New Zealand were a major factor in the carrier’s decision this week to purchase eight 787-10 aircraft from Boeing, according to those familiar with the deal. For Qantas, the plane maker is also privately sharing early details of changes coming to the 777X, aimed at enabling Project Sunrise, the airline’s pursuit to connect Australia’s largest city with London and New York without stopping.
