AKL spotters you may find this of interest! On January 1st of 2003, United Airlines is operating 2 non stop LAX-AKL flights. The first flight of the night is UA 849 served by the Boeing 747-400. Less then an hour after that flight departs, UA 841 a Boeing 777 will depart for Auckland. Arrival times for UA 849 is around 7:30AM. UA 841 due in a bit past 8AM on January 3rd. The 747-400 will stay in Auckland until the 4th before it returns to LAX as UA 848. I find it interesting that this is just a one time flight option during the month of January. I wonder if there is a particular reason for the extra flight?? Hope someone can get a shot of the two aircraft together in AKL!
