    David,

    The US regulations that Gary posted apply only to US certified airlines.  Every country has there own regulations that are very simular.  An international body called ICAO publish the agreed-upon international rules.  New Zealand and Australia are members of ICAO.

    If you look at a globe and the route there are a lot of landing airports.  The Cook Islands, Easter Is. etc dot the Pacific.  Rember, in a four engined airplane you can be three hours away from an airport - about 1600 NM.  Looking at my globe, the route between Sydney and Santiago never goes south of 60 S.
