Hahaha... Driving along on a rainy autumn afternoon I hear an announcement on the radio.
"Thousands of Air New Zealand passengers will be affected by flights cancelled until middle of next week due to urgent engine work on Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet." (link)
I start grinning. Middle of next week...
Well, let's hope two things: that we're not on the 787 (I think we were scheduled to go on 789 but gotta check that) and that "middle of next week" means we're leaving after the cut-off point of fleet being back in service, because otherwise...
Well, it's good we have travel insurance, anyway.
PS. Yup, we're on a Dreamliner. Boeing 789 (technically, 787-9) is a sub-type of a 787.
I guess I'll keep an eye on my phone and my e-mail for potential travel alerts... Ehh :)
