United Airlines recently held its annual trivia nights in Australia and New Zealand, attended by over 250 travel agents.

Competition was fierce, as agents had their knowledge of United Airlines, California, Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York and other U.S. pop culture tested and fought to win an all-inclusive return trip to the U.S., flying on  either the recently introduced B777 from Sydney or the upcoming Dreamliner 787 from Melbourne (from October 28).
