Curious what the plans are for this aircraft and crew.
Edit: Well, looks like it's off to Auckland as NZ6001. Took off about 50 minutes ago. Answered my own question haha.
That's gotta be the first ever AUS-Oceania nonstop flight, I'd imagine!
Thanks, Longhornmaniac! I had to do a double take when riding from the terminal to The Parking Spot (west) after landing from a work gig last Saturday night. I was irritated by the livery on the bus windows which impeded visibility, but was ecstatic to see the 772 nonetheless.
