Already announced but spotted this...The decision to use the 787-9 to Adelaide will mean a reduction in frequency to three flights a week. However, Air New Zealand said it would add three A320 services on the route during the summer holiday period between December 2017 and January 2018.
If true, not such good news...
Well, better for business class travellers. Also the 787 seats are nominally wider according to Seatguru (not the most reliable source, I know). Also, since the 787 is bigger, it's not such a reduction in available seat numbers overall. It will be interesting to see if there's an effect on fares.
