Different type of aircrafts have different "max demonstrated t/o and landing
crosswind" performance (not limiting). Maybe Kiwi and Continental uses different
aircrafts compared to the ones used by Delta and American. Assuming that
the arrival times of the flights are roughly the same, this is the only reason
that I can think of.
