Thought members might be interested to know that we have signed an interline agreement with Delta allowing full access to each others networks. No codeshare or frequent flyer/lounge reciprocity has been announced.
cheers

A while ago when V Australia announced its interline deal with NW (pre merger), NW advised my friend to "look out for" frequent flyer reciprocity with V Australia. Though the merger with Delta might have thrown a spanner in the works on that front?

That's one way of looking at it. The other is to say that we had an interline agreement only with NW and now we have one with the merged entity....

"V Australia, Delta sign interline deal"

"Virgin Blue's international airline V Australia and Delta Air Lines, the world's largest carrier, have signed an Australia-US interline agreement.


An interline agreement is where one airline can carry passengers or freight on behalf of another airline.


Virgin Blue said the agreement, effective immediately, allows travellers to purchase a single ticket from V Australia or Delta for travel on the networks of each carrier."

... and thus interpreting all that, the FF reciprocity with the merged entity shouldn't be far off from now. :)

Good news!

Does this agreement cover Virgin Blue also or is it just V Australia at this stage?

Virgin Blue domestic network included, so you can buy a single ticket ATL-LAX-SYD-CBR for example (with either DL or VA on LAX-SYD).

And this can all be booked from the Delta, or V Australia website direct ?

Brilliant :p

Not sure if this news is the game-breaker on the AU-LAX route, but it's close.

UA wouldn't be liking this news, anyway.

Now that's very good news indeed. It makes my 500,000 Velocity points a bit more interesting! :)

So how long do we give Delta Airlines before giving up on Australia altogether and code sharing with V Australia across the Pacific.

I'm pretty sure either Delta or United will pull out in favour of the codeshare. Strangely enough, my money is on UA letting VA have the MEL/SYD-LAX route and leaving UA with just SFO-SYD.

Hmm, surely an airline (UA, for example) wouldn't do one route without the other. If ultimately Delta/VA go to the more codeshare arrangement, it would seem likely that if someone left, it would be UA. Then the issue becomes *Alliance missing their direct coast-to-coast service, which I doubt they would want.

Maybe it could be Delta, but seems unlikely given their size and just starting the route they would pull out, but who knows...

That functionality will be added, although I believe we won't add the entire Delta US domestic network to our drop down list of destinations - just the major one such as Chicago, New York etc. Don't know off the top of my head how we will facilitate online booking of entire DL network.

Welcome back Yada Yada - long time no see.

Could you not allow people to put in airport codes or city names rather than having to choose from a picklist?
