787-9 Dreamliner

Jump to last reply

I flew from Auckland to Perth last night on Air NZ's 787-9 Dreamliner, which commenced service on this route Friday Sept 12, 2014.

I'm hardly an airplane buff, but have to say I was pretty impressed and rather pleased that my $190 One Up bid to Premium Economy was accepted just a few hours prior to the flight.

As usual in Air NZ's premium cabins, the service was excellent. An added bonus was the food - my roasted chicken breast with chorizo crushed potatoes and rocket salad vaporized from my plate. It made up for the inedible food I had on Air NZ's SYD to CHC flight a few weeks back...almost.

Sandwiches, fruit and scones with cream and jam were a nice touch prior to landing.

The 787-9 was incredibly quiet. The seats were very comfortable for my seven hour flight; the leg rests a godsend, and the instruction video explaining how to work the various gadgets quite helpful.

Well done Air New Zealand.

PS - quite a bit of media fanfare in NZ a few days ago when they retired the 747.
