Joe's link is about the 777-300. If you are definitely on the 777-200 you'll get the old economy style seats, but you'll get more seat pitch ( 41" v. 31-33" in eco ) and 50% more recline. You will also get premium check-in services at the airport, and I'm pretty sure you'll get the business class menu, and a self service refreshment bar.

Yes, the 777-200 has economy style seating - 3 across. But the plus is the amount of legroom as has been stated.

You'll also be in a smaller cabin and get business class meals and wines.

Not as nice as PE on the 747 where you can get a choice of 2 across or 3 across seating.

The new 777-300 is a different animal all together and has had very mixed reviews. Am trying it myself for the first time next week.

Have a look at this link for lots of comments about the 777-300.

The forum in general is a very good one for all things AirNZ.

The new 777 are only on the flights via LAX. I think it will be late 2012 before they are on the Hong Kong route

They're also on some AKL/BNE flights which is why I'm getting to try it next weekend.

There are no PE seats sold on Trans Tasman flights so premium customers like Gold and Koru get to use the space as Space+ for economy prices. Economy food and wine, too, but who's complaining?
