As Boeing demonstrates and displays the newest Dreamliner version, the stretched 787-9 at Farnborough Air Show this week, Air New Zealand has flown the first of ten to be purchased to Auckland. Preparations and training will see the stretched Dreamliner begin to ply the Auckland–Perth route commencing on 15 October. Shortly Air New Zealand will have at least 10 of these stretched Dreamliners connecting points across — as well as within — the Pacific Rim. The all black fuselages, with the Kiwi symbols of the koru and silver fern and white wings, will spend most of the their flight hours over blue water while looking positively striking at the airside.
