Yeah, I'd find Auckland a surprise, too. If AC can get some 777-200 LRs and/or 787s, that should do, because I think both of these aircraft tyes can fly YVR-AKL nonstop as well as YVR-SYD.

BTW, just a little piece of trivia - AKL is the IATA code for Auckland. AUK is for Alakanuk, Alaska, some 1600 km NW of Anchorage.
