Update: 10:29AM IN a scene reminiscent of the change of guard, the tired old Boeing 747-400 workhorse is berthed at the Nadi airport while guests and aviation industry stakeholders wait in anticipation for the Airbus to arrive.
The aircraft is about 28 years old and has given many good years of service, flying to all of Air Pacific's major destinations.
The brand new airbus that arrives in Nadi shortly sets the foundation of Air Pacific's new identity - Fiji Airways.
Air Pacific ground staff are preparing to ferry in the
A330-200 aircraft in Fiji Airways livery.
Women adorned in bright bula
wear holding bales of cloth are also waiting in anticipation..
