East coast of the US. It takes forever and two days to get here. I flew to CA, then Sydney and then here. - Jun 2019
West Coast USA. From LAX or SFO, it's about a 14-hour flight to either Sydney or Auckland, then a connecting flight on a smaller plane into Wellington's wind-buffeted sneeze of an airport. Transiting through Auckland involves lugging all your checked luggage between the domestic and international terminals, while a trip through Sydney involves having to deal with Australians. - Mar 2016
East coast - 27 - 34 hours through Sydney and LAX. - Apr 2015
Tulsa, OK. I honestly can't remember how long it took - just that it was way too long. - Aug 2011
