The single, empty, Air New Zealand plane over the country this morning. Air NZ had just one plane in the skies this morning, and it was empty. Just when you thought airline news couldn't get any more astonishing, Air New Zealand has revealed domestic rush hour this morning involved just one plane in New Zealand skies - with no passengers. The national carrier has dramatically reduced its usual flying in response to Covid-19; only flying essential workers domestically and dropping 95 per cent of its international capacity. The airline's Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace this morning revealed that the usual morning rush hour had just one flight operating across New Zealand, an ATR-72 from Nelson to Auckland.
