· Air New Zealand:
When you’re looking to fly to here and there in and around New Zealand it’s not surprising that Air New Zealand has you covered. They have some new routes new this week, as it looks like they’re getting ready to add new flights to and from Christchurch. The plan is to start nonstop flights beginning on November 4, as the carrier connects Christchurch with Paraparaumu. They’ll do one back and forth flight each and every day. It’ll be propeller power to get things done, as Dash8-300 aircraft will be responsible for the quick flight between the South Island and North Island.
· Royal Brunei Airlines:
At this point it kind of seems like anyone and everyone has his or her very own Boeing 787, and this week supports our theory as Royal Brunei Airlines is the latest carrier to score a Dreamliner. The new airplane recently departed from Seattle, as it makes its way to its new home. The plane will do its thing back and forth between Brunei International Airport—that’s in Bandar Seri Begawan—and Singapore. Once the cabin crew and pilots get used to things the plane will head elsewhere, as December 1 will bring flights between Brunei and London with a stop in Dubai on the way.

Things must be going well for Hawaiian Airlines when it comes to their nonstop flights between Seattle and the islands, as the carrier is looking to boost its service. The flights between Seattle and Honolulu will soon be scoring around 30 more seats, as newer—and roomier—Airbus A330s will replace Boeing 767s. The larger aircraft are scheduled to arrive beginning on December 8, and it’s not just more room for passengers aboard the new flights. The Airbus A330s have seat-back-screens for in-flight entertainment; however, you do need to shell out a few bucks to access the better content.
