Good point. We were flying ORD-AKL-SYD with only transit at AKL, which may account for our OLCI success.

That said, the NZeTA is required whether you're transiting or entering NZ, so it seems odd...

So my question is, assuming we need to check bags, and that the NZ desk opens 4 hours before the flight, is it faster to clear security at T5 ó then take the airside bus to T1 and...
