Auckland to Chicago

Hello everyone! I hope you’re staying healthy and doing well. The other day, I flew from Auckland to Chicago in Air New Zealand’s Boeing 789. It was a very enjoyable flight with some great scenery along the way. Currently, this is Air New Zealand’s longest route. I highly suggest you flying it!
