Make that Auckland; AKL. Sadly, when UA pulls out, there will be no US (passenger) airline serving NZ. I remember when they started using the 777 on the LAX-AKL route, they said that they were "here to stay". Come back Continental!!

I don't know why they are dropping it. I took it as an SA and the loads were pretty good. If UA drops the SYD and MEL flites then that would screw everything up for the US carriers.
I Don't know where I am anymore
