The AKL-LAX flight is scheduled to land at 10:30 AM in early February (of course there are chances of schedule changes that far out).

So there are LAX-SFO flights departing at 12 PM, 1 PM and 2:37 PM. I'm guessing 12 PM is too risky. I guess the NZ flight will park at TBIT and the UA flights will be Terminals 7 or 8, so a good amount of time to change terminals.

Is the 1 PM flight enough of a margin, approximately 2.5 hours? Of course it will probably board at around 12:30 PM.
