Technical issues disrupt travellers on two Air New Zealand flights on 19 August 2018

Passengers on two Air New Zealand flights have had their travel plans disrupted due to technical issues.

Both flights were the same type of plane – a Boeing 777-200ER.

Flight NZ80 returned to Hong Kong on Sunday night as a precautionary measure after pilots discovered a fault with one of the hydraulic systems.

And on Monday morning NZ101, flying from Auckland to Sydney, returned to Auckland as a precaution due to an issue with the system that heats one of the windows in the flight deck.

All passengers were accommodated and put on alternative flights.
