American Airlines announces service to New Zealand!

New Zealand is one of my favorite places on earth (check out my trip report here), it’s beauty is the thing of legend and is only outdone by the friendliness of the Kiwi people.  I also generally enjoy American Airlines.

GUESS WHAT?!

American Airlines announced today that they will fly a 787-8 from Los Angeles to Auckland!

Here’s the schedule:

LAX-AKL
Departs LAX 10:45pm
Arrives AKL 6:35am+2

AKL-LAX
Departs AKL 1:20pm
Arrives LAX 6:30am, same day

As expected, the 787-8 will be the workhorse of the fleet (for my impressions of both coach and business class, see my report from the inaugural flight).  It’s a great plane for the route and its efficiency allows American the flexibility to add routes like this.

June 2016 is when they expect to launch the flight and I’ll do whatever I can to be on it, join me!  If you’ve never been and don’t have time to check out my trip report, see below for some of my favorites from New Zealand!
