So if the flight leaves Doha at 10am then you have up to 12 hour of awake time, 6 hours of sleep and a couple hours for waking up/meal.Then you would arrive in Auckland at 2pm.
But it's not handy for London as you would have another overnight flight to arrive before the 10am departure.

I would think the flight would have to leave before 3pm to make it less stressful (3pm departure ... sleep from 11pm to 6am ... wake up/meal for 3 hours. NZ 7pm arrival).
But they also need to consider return flight time, so they may want to arrive very late so they can fly back to Doha early in the morning.
