Time to continue our tour of the carriers at Terminal Two. Air New Zealand (callsign: New Zealand) is the busiest heavy jet operator there, sometimes with three aircraft on gates at once. Most of those aircraft are B777-300s, although we do see a few -200s as well. At the moment, Air New Zealand is the only carrier offering direct service from Los Angeles to Auckland. They also have a daily flight to/from London Heathrow. Once a week, we get a B767-300 from/to Raratonga in the Cook Islands - although this flight has occasionally used a B777-200.
