    Australia/USA or Australia/Canada or Australia/Mexico on a low cost basis. There must be some very cheap A330s around. They could fly 1 stop through some friendly country & use their traffic rights. They could even fly to Tijuana Mexico, which is right on the USA border & simply walk across the border to San Diego on private bridge about 100m long called Without Virgin flying BNE, SYD & MEL to LAX, there's something like 6100 seats a week less to USA, plus other possible cutbacks on nonstops. Could also have a mini hub in the Pacific. Eg. if had 3 or more aircraft, could all depart BNE, SYD & MEL around the same time, arrive in Pacific nation around the same time & then continue onto YVR(or YXX), LAX(or ONT) & TIJ or SFO(or OAK). Same for the return. There are also low cost airports in Australia. Wellcamp or Gold Coast instead of BNE, AVV instead of MEL.
