Approaching my record now at 140 my record is 155

You must have been sideways 😂

It was actually a nice tailwind. I spent less than 2h doing Auckland-Rarotonga(Cook Islands). But on the trip back, this time non-stop to Sydney, I had to continue westbound all the way to Fiji to avoid the strong winds. All this on an A320.
