Last I heard (and this is strictly my possibly faulty memory of news reports),
the hushkits had been cleared as the responsible factor; rather the problem
was traced to the blades themselves.  I believe all 737-200s in the Air NZ
fleet eventually had their fan blades replaced, not just the huskitted ones.
