Transpacific Alliance Approved

As expected, see "Regulators to Approve U.S./Australia Alliance," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission officially cleared the Delta Airlines/Virgin Blue alliance proposal.  See Harry R. Weber, Australian Regulators OK Delta, Virgin Blue Plan, Assoc. Press, Dec. 10, 2009 (available here).  The joint venture is still awaiting final approval and antitrust immunity from the U.S. Department of Transportation.  See Dkt. No. OST-2009-0155, Application for Approval of and Antitrust Immunity for Alliance Agreements (July 9, 2009).
