Some breaking news for Air New Zealand, after one of its 777-300 ZK-OKM aircraft, from Los Angeles to Auckland was hit by another aircraft. While the aircraft was about to begin boarding another aircraft had struck its Horizontal Stabilizer. NZ5 was canceled, and all 285 passengers flying to Auckland will be staying overnight in Los Angeles while a replacement aircraft is sent to LAX.
A new part and a team of engineers were being sent to Los Angeles, however, the spare part would be arriving at a different airport, and would need to be transferred. Air New Zealand General Manager Customer Experience Anita Hawthorne, said that they would be making an attempt to ensure that they could fit as many passengers as they can on the Southbound NZ1 flight, which stops is LA from London, however most passengers would, unfortunately, be spending the night in LA.
