"July 9, 2009

Australian airline Virgin Blue plans a code sharing tie-up with US
carrier Delta Air Lines to allow the two carriers to compete better on
routes between the US, Australia and the South Pacific, Virgin said on

In advance of their joint venture, the carriers are moving to implement
code sharing, frequent flyer programme reciprocity and lounge exchange
privileges, the Virgin statement said".

US travellers might want to check Virgin prices first...


I was checking this yesterday and noted the code share talks from the
vaustralia site. Delta could use the hlep on this routing as well.
Their planes are flying, from the look of available seating, at pretty
low volumes. The two starting together against Qantas were actually
fighting each other more than the big red roo. When the smoke settles
I see V Australia doing the flying and Delta supplying the passengers.
just my .02 USD
