AKL-LAX Equipment upgrade

Hi Everyone,
Do you think ANZ would upgrade their AKL-LAX equipment to their new aircrafts (dream liners) anytime soon?

They mainly use the 777-300 due to the extra capacity it brings as their largest aircraft. I can’t see them putting smaller aircraft on one of their busiest routes.

It’s one of their most popular routes so operating on their largest pane. the only plane swaps I’ve seen is between the 772 and 773. Nz1/2 is the flagship route with most capacity so they probably won’t change there. Nz5/6 is the secondary route and swaps to a 787 could be possible in the down season but I’m only speculating.

With the issues the Dreamliners are causing NZ schedule wise currently, I highly doubt it

Before they launched Houston, in the busy season they did a third daily AKL LAX run using the 787, but that doesn't exist anymore. It was also on the once weekly AKL RAR LAX (NZ18) service but that recently swapped onto a 772. So, probably not.

Why would they want to? It would mean a loss of 69 seats on each flight.
