I was wondering do airline change crews during connection flight that continues to the final destinations? for example QF LHR to SIN to SYD, AC YVR to HNL to SYD, NZ LHR to LAX to AKL? Those three example of flights are pretty long for pilots and flight attendants. Would they change or stay on the flight? I'm sorry if this was discussed because I couldn't find it. What I mean is are there fresh crews on either SIN to SYD, LAX to AKL and HNL to SYD? Reason is I wonder if they will do the same for crew change or no change for AC's new flight YYZ to LAX to SYD in half of 2007 will commence.

Quoting BMED (Reply 6): Air New Zealand change over crew at LAX and then a london based crew fly the aircraft to london. From LHR to flight is operated by a LHR crew who hand the flight over to a auckland based based crew.
And very rarely do New Zealand based NZ cabin crew ever make it as far as Europe according to a Swedish NZ crew member I had the pleasure of talking to en route PPT RAR.
