Yes, they're in the same alliance, which is why I assume that United was the alternative. UAL does fly both LAX-SYD and SFO-SYD direct, and have been doing so for decades. It's well within range. Either one would have made Mark's total travel time shorter, so why was he booked on ANZ, which means a stop at AKL, which is out of the way and makes the trip longer? My assumption is price, but it's also a more pleasant experience because you're dealing with ANZ's crew and equipment instead of UAL's.
