Air NZ completes last ever London to LA flight

Air New Zealand has completed its last every London to Los Angles flight.

The Air NZ base at Heathrow, which employs 130 flight attendants, was meant to close in October. The airline had planned to replace the London service with one to New York.

However, due to the impact of coronavirus on air travel, the route is suspended until the end of June. This means the iconic London to LA flight will no longer happen.

Air New Zealand has been flying between Auckland and London for 36 years. The route carried the flagship flight number, NZ1 – or NZ2 if you were flying north.

The final flight was, of course, an emotional time for the crew onboard and staff on the ground.
