Back in AKL for a good year and spotting is one thing that has been on my mind. As we get into winter, the weather has been fantastic..Crystal Clear Blue sky. Several shots from last weekend.

 

CX sent me One World.... :yahoo: :yahoo:

Was hoping for 380, but the LR came instead.

Raj, good to hear that you are back in AKL.

 

Will hop over there on 13 April until 20 April. Will be in AKL for one day and the rest in WLG.

Try and shoot my EK406 flight, an A345 from Melbourne on 13 April :)

raj, i saw 772 and 380 arriving back to back on the 30th :) where do they arrive from?

Assuming that we are talking about EK's B777-200LR and Airbus A380-861, both flies the DXB-SYD-AKL route, flight nos. EK412 and EK413 from Auckland on the way back to DXB.

 

B777-200LR for certain days when it is not so busy (Sun) and A380-861 on normal days.

Any possibility of doing any spotting airside? I'll be flying out of AKL in May on EK413.

 

Airside meaning Terminal/ramp or perimeter?

EK412/413 on Mondays should be Airbus A380-800. At least it is scheduled for April the 13th, which is a Monday.

Yeap there is a vieweing area in the terminal. Infact 2 levels. After checking in, you go up to the 2nd floor and head towards the entrance for imigration/passport check. BUt just before the entrace to imigration, you will see an escalator going up. take tht up and walk ur way towards the end past several food shops you should be a the viewing area.

Tsentan, as Ian said..It's good in the afternoon as the sun is right on top and behind the terminal.

i was in AKL during the weekend...

Another two-day lay over for you TK?

 

Raj, I will be at AKL again on Monday, 20 April 09 arriving from WLG with Pacific Blue at 2:15pm at the Domestic terminal. My flight to Sydney, EK413, is leaving AKL at 5:45pm. Could meet you at the international terminal on that day? Let me know if that suits.
