That sparks the question of when their first 787-9 revenue flight will be and on what route - although I think I remember seeing that was the AKL-PVG route.

The trans-Tasman Dreamliner

Air New Zealand’s Boeing 787-9 will make its official debut on October 15th flying between Auckland and Perth, one of the routes its shares with partner Virgin Australia.
Prior to that the next-gen jetliner will also appear on trans-Tasman flights from Auckland to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane from “sometime in July or August, definitely in September” Morgan says.
“There’s no requirement to do proving flights as part of the certification in New Zealand” he explains, “but we will put the aircraft into service across the Tasman for crew training and also to ensure that the aeroplane is integrated seamlessly into our network”.
“We’re certainly not going to have it sitting around on the ground after the delivery in July!”
Air New Zealand expects to take delivery of two more Boeing 787-9s in September and October, which will be used for daily flights to Shanghai and Tokyo, along with some Tokyo-Christchurch flights.
