I'd place a strong bet on 2012

That looks like a pleasant ride to AKL, and the photos of "the beach" next to the old SYD ATC Centre brought back great memories.
I'm guessing that the trip took place around late 2010 - mid 2012, since AR's last SYD-AKL A340 flight was on 6 July 2012. The Departures screens shown early in the post have UA codesharing with US on their flight to SFO, an agreement which ended in early 2014 with the AA-US merger. The pictured UA 744 has the new (current) livery, which debuted in late 2010. (Later, UA's service went from the 744 to 777 and now 789, *although substitutions have happened.)
I'm so glad you took your older photos and compiled them into a new report for us.... If you have more, please do give!

I for one think the new Aerolineas scheme is one of the best out there. It's a pity that none of the -200s got a makeover prior to retirement.

Does not look like the most extravagant of flights... No IFE and a pretty small meal, considering its a 3hr flight!
That said, pretty unique TR, thanks for sharing!
