I don't see AKL-CRP ever happening. The most important issue for the Australia/New Zealand - US market is avoiding having to make double connections in the US. Prior to the QF flights to DFW, many people in the southeastern US would have to make a connection at DFW, then a connection at LAX. AKL-DEN is problematic, because the airport is over a mile high. Even with a 16,000 foot long runway, it is still limited for high gross weights to take off from DEN to fly to AKL.
CRP? YYZ is another potential route.
I think his CRP comment was sarastic because A.net readers in the past have mis-stated what P2P means. It doesn’t mean hub on each end. It means opening up new city pairs that weren’t flown before. Like AKL-JFK, AKL-IAH, MEL-DFW, LHR-SJC, etc.
