OP appears to be asking about a paid ticket, but I can attest to the fact that it does not require two awards on award tickets. (This is not AA, after all.) I am ticketed OMA-SLC-LAX-ICN-AKL//HKG-NRT-ATL-OMA for 135K with all but OMA-SLC in F/J. It is not always easy to get them to recognize the valid US-SW Pacific routing via Asia if not departing from a US destination to which the TPAC carrier flies, but it is possible. The key is that if KE/MU/CI/CZ publish a fare from your origin through to your destination in the SW Pacific and you adhere (mostly) to their routing rules, you're good to go. I say mostly because I got OMA-SLC-LAX-ICN-AKL when KE's published route is OMA-MSP-ORD-ICN-AKL. I've seen other reports of people fly ex-BNA being able to route to SYD via SLC and LAX when that's not one of KE's "sanctioned" routings to ICN.

if it's for award ticket...

Just to add one more exotic stopover/connection:

In addition to Hawaii-AKL direct flight, the OP may consider redeeming on TN from LAX (LAX-PPT-AKL).

So, how do I get to NZ on Delta???????
OP I have a ticket that goes into SYD, stops for for some days, flies me to AKL stop, MEL day here, then MEL to SYD-LAX-DCA.

All on one ticket, very possible !

So my routing is DCA-ATL-LAX-SYD-AKL-MEL-SYD-LAX-DCA .

I used DJ (Virgin Australia) for SYD-AKL-MEL-SYD.

Very possible, although if you're looking to go Trans-Tasman in style, I recommend hopping LA or EK on the connection. No SkyMiles, but well worth it if you're in paid business, IMHO
