Just heard on the radio that Air New Zealand will fly a Dreamliner
from Auckland to Perth then on to LHR to compete against Qantas. Air New Zealand
has a new lounge under construction at Perth International.

Hi Delly, which radio station was this, and in which city?
Chris, it was on 6PR in Perth.

I just heard on 6PR in Perth as well
Thanks both, we're looking into it.

Awesome news! Been waiting to hear this. Certainly a better stopover than LAX.

Thanks for sharing this info, guys, we're looking into this further – there's been no announcement from AirNZ so this may have just been a "we'd like to" or "in the future we plan to" observation – we'll come back with a bit more once we're heard back from AirNZ.

If this is true imagine the coup for air nz if they start before Qantas!

Are you referring to the "Rumour File" by any chance?

Are you sure they weren't just repeating speculation from this forum 10 days ago... https://www.ausbt.com.au/community/view/50/6351/new-international-destinations-for-air-nz-in-2018?
