Transport Minister Mark Vaile said the flag-carrier's Sydney to Los Angeles route would remain off-limits to airlines other than Qantas and Australian discount flyer Virgin Blue "for some time."

I suspect this is an inaccurate paraphrase since Air New Zealand has LAX-SYD rights, doesn't it? It is an important point as Canada was seeking a bilateral change that would allow it to operate fifths between LAX-SYD and I have not seen it explicitly publicly stated that Australia is against this.

I am not finding a press release about this. What prompted the statement? A media question?

I don't think it came about either. LAX-SYD won't be seeing AC anytime soon
