Fly Me!

Air New Zealand has upgraded its order for four Boeing 787-8 planes due for delivery in 2009 to four 787-9 planes – making it the launch purchaser for that model.

The first plane will now be delivered to New Zealand just before Christmas 2010 and is expected to be the first of the model out of the assembly plant.

Boeing, Air New Zealand and engine-maker Rolls-Royce, held a ceremonial signing yesterday in which Air NZ converted its order for four 787-8 airplanes to four 787-9 airplanes.

The 787-9 is the biggest version available of the 787 Dreamliner and has a list price of $183 million. The 787-9 is capable of carrying up to 290 passengers on routes of 15,900km-16,300km, according to Boeing.

In light of this news...

Dear Trademe,

I was just thinking - it would be awesome if you offered flights on Trade Me as well. We're all looking for the best deal around, and this would be a great addition to your awesome site!
