Looking at Flytecomm.com, it looks like the ANZ flight is heading to HNL from ORD.

I checked ATL, but doesn't say anything about Air New Zealand there.

I wonder if someone has a similar code to ANZ and that is why it is showing, such as Kalitta Air has the same code as Suckling Airways of Brittain and Kalitta shows up as Suckling.

Could be a code share flight, UA i'm guessing? as the flight number seems quite high

Could it be that Delta might have been doing some maintainence for ANZ? The only thing going on in Atlanta this weekend is the NBA All-Star Game, but I don't think that an ANZ widebody would be sent in for that.

NZ69xx is a round-the-world cargo flight operated by Lufthansa Cargo MD-11F. NZ/LH joint-ventures on this flight.

There are at least 3 to 4 routings for this RTW flight, like:

FRA-ORD-HNL-AKL-MEL-PEN-LHE-SHJ-FRA
FRA-ATL-ORD-HNL-AKL-MEL-KUL-DEL-FRA

Note
-Saturday to Auckland from FRA will first fly to ATL then to ORD.
-Stops may vary only on the KUL-FRA and PEN-FRA sector, they are DEL, LHE, SHJ.

NZ's pax code-share flight with UA is NZ9xxx.
