Update #5 Global Rolls-Royce engine maintenance

1 May 2018

Due to the global requirement for further, earlier than scheduled maintenance checks on some Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines, which includes some engines in Air New Zealand’s 787-9 Dreamliner fleet, Air New Zealand advises of further amendments to our LAX schedule as listed below:

DATE Route Flight New Timing

Old Timing

      Depart Arrive Depart Arrive
8-13, 15-20, 22-27 May AKL-LAX NZ6 1550 900 1930 1240

8-13, 15-20, 22-27 May

Now NZ3

1050 1835+1 2230 0615+2

Further to the above please continue to check your queues and 789 disrupt agent page for various flight number changes due to a change in aircraft type.

We anticipate that the GDS will start to update from 4pm today and will appear as a normal schedule change once this change has been made.

Please visit the Air New Zealand 789 disrupt agent page for more information on:

  • Affected flights that have already been advised
  • Customer flexibility options
  • Rebooking options for destinations beyond the gateway
  • Ticketing process for reissues
  • Accommodation assistance

Thank you for your support over this period to ensure our mutual customers get to their destinations with minimal disruption.
