Air New Zealand is putting the heat on its rivals over reporting punctuality on domestic routes.
Pacific Blue in June began publicising its on-time performance - in its case aircraft departing within 15 minutes of schedule - but Air New Zealand yesterday called for that to drop to a 10-minute window.
In July, 86 per cent of Air New Zealand's 15,357 flights operated by 68 aircraft left within 10 minutes of schedule, the airline said. It will report its performance monthly in operating figures it gives the stock exchange.
