    VS offers decent award inventory from many of their North American gateways. I wonder whether DL would impose fuel surcharges on these redemptions. If Virgin joined Skyteam, it would be interesting to see Virgin Australia do the same. VS would offer (IMHO) the best business class product in the alliance — except for food — and unquestionably the best alliance business product across the Pond.

    This is certainly interesting. I agree that Sky Team is the most likely alliance for them to land in, given Star’s strong presence in LHR. I would personally like to see them in Star, as it is my primary alliance. It would not hurt to have another member to redeem on.
