Air New Zealand is often a bit cheaper than the alternatives (United and Qantas) who go direct from LAX to SYD. Not "oh my god that's an amazing price difference" cheaper, but enough that a corporate travel agent who isn't going to get the extra hours on the trip herself may book it anyway.

The other common travel agent trick is to route you via Singapore or Japan. Those add a heap to the travel time too.

If you ever make the trip again but opt to go direct, avoid United, make sure you get a Qantas flight. Qantas is the dominant player on that route and a hell of a lot nicer than United.

V Australia and Delta are just about to launch on the direct route as well. Dunno what the inflight quality will be like, but they're both using 777s, brand new in the case of V.
