    Regarding Delta’s cost structure disadvantage because they’re flying the smaller plane (777-200LR):

    1. Only SkyTeam provider so that will drive some traffic to them.
    2. Australia-US fares have traditionally been *very* high especially in premium cabins. Unless a price war erupts, Delta could still ring a profit, even if their competitors make more.
    3. Is there anything precluding the 777-200LR being a trial balloon for Delta to be upgraded to a 747-400 service or 2x daily 787 service in 2010 once they get traction and build loyalty?
