The flightplans on FlightAware - Free Flight Tracker - IFR Flight Status, Tracking, History, Maps (http://flightaware.com) show ANZ14 from NCRG Rarotonga to KLAX going direct from BORIC to AMATT. AirNav (http://www.airnav.com) says BORIC is 15-48-25 N, 134-25-33 W and AMATT is 23-15-37 N, 130-09-52 W.

Along the direct route between those lat-lons is 17.891039 N, 133.278099 W, which is 1243.1 nm from ITO and the same from SAN. Is the 767-300 allowed to get this far from an airport?

If by chance San Nicolas KNSI is an allowed alternate then their farthest-from-an-airport distance becomes 1228.4 nm-- but probably KNSI isn't allowed? And if it isn't, San Clemente isn't either? I see no other possible diversions closer than SAN and ITO.

415kts for ETOPS calculations. Sounds correct. NZ may have different speeds or just assigned distances. 1200nm is most definately approved, so I'd say they have it right.

415 kts is the speed for the Air NZ B767 with range circle distance of 180 min ETOP's of 1245 nm.
