Article from BTNews 31 MAY 2010

Continental (or is it United) to New Zealand

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES has chosen an entirely new route, Houston to Auckland, to introduce the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in November 2011.  It will become the 26th destination in Continental's Pacific network and the 63rd international route out of Houston and at 7,000 miles also the longest.  The aircraft will be kitted out with 36 flat-bed BusinessFirst seats and 192 in Economy.  The Houston – Auckland route will benefit from connecting traffic at both ends.  Continental's Houston hub will draw passengers from throughout North America and should prove an attractive connecting point between Europe and New Zealand.  Due to the crossing of the international date line the westbound flight will arrive two days after leaving, and in the other direction six hours in the day earlier.
