That is, unless NZ flies there from Sydney, which could probably support a daily nonstop to NYC.
|Quoting MotorHussy (Reply 4):|
A shame that a twin engine could never do the southern polar route to Chile or Argentina economically.

...used to have...
|Quoting Aerohottie (Thread starter):|
does this open the door for NZ to operate ULH flights to ORD and NYC direct from AKL,
|Quoting Anxebla (Reply 7):|
and what about nowadays? Did NZ stop that route? What kind of competition does QF have between and Australia and the US? What about UA?

Quoting SunriseValley (Reply 9):
I have been pondering for some time the possibility that the last three of the eight -200ER's ordered might be changed to -200LR.

Quoting Aerohottie (Thread starter):
Also, slightly off topic, but do you think a AKL-HNL-YYZ flight would work if NZ was to also operate AKL-YVR direct?
AKL/YVR will be operated by wide body on a charter basis wirthin 12 months.
Charter means low cost. NZ or QF can't compete with charters.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 2):|
I would think AC will probably go direct to SYD from Canada now with their 772LRs, dropping the HNL stop, in addition to using two for YVR-HKG.
|Quoting Mariner (Reply 8):|
Who would want to fly from NZ to the US and skip California?
It is one of the largest economies in the world, bigger than many countries, and it has more tourist destinations than any other single state in the US, except Florida.
It is the natural point of contact between NZ and the US.
There may be a few, a very few people whose business contacts are only in New York, and less for Chicago, but there can't be many, and why would they want to miss out on time in LA or SF?
|Quoting Aerohottie (Reply 18):|
I'm saying to operate these services as well as the current offering.
|Quoting 777ER (Reply 10):|
but SQ is wanting access to SYD-LAX
|Quoting Mariner (Reply 19):|
especially since they have ceded all of South America entirely to foreign airlines.
|Quoting Mariner (Reply 19):|
The natural connection is California. Why fly in the face of what people actually want to do?
