Air New Zealand ordered two additional 787-8s for delivery in 2010 and 2011, doubling its original order. The aircraft are part of a 777/787 order placed in July 2004 for 10 firm buys and 42 price rights. Analysts expect ANZ also will order more 777s beyond its commitment for eight 777-200ERs. It takes delivery of the first 777-200ER this week.
