Unfortunately, Delta doesn't go to New Zealand, only Syndney out of LAX.
I'd love to get down there, heard great things about it. One of our pilots retired about 5 years ago and moved there, permanantly, I think his wife was from there. I'm going to try to track him down and see how that's working out.
Maybe I could cary one back, in many small pieces, as 'cary on baggage' if I make enough trips to SYD and then go visit him!
Here you go Jay, you, Mom and the girls would look pretty good on that F9A (scroll to the bottom pict.) http://www.f-boat.com/pages/trimarans/index.html
