Going on a cruise next Jan which starts in AKL. No business seats available so I have a first class ticket SAV-IAD-SFO-SYD-AKL. Got my friend economy PHL-IAD-SFO-SYD. Can't get her to AKL without another stop in CHC. Asked for different routings but was told there is nothing available on ANZ and connecting thru Asia is over the mileage limit. Is there a way to fly East to get to AKL?
