AN would've taken the LCC (Seats to Suit) route for anything below 7.5 hours - basically domestic and short haul int'l to Bali and Fiji adopted by NZ, whilst their long haul ops via SQ would've been kept to HKG (primarily O&D with VS/EU Star Connections) KIX (NH connections) and LAX (UA connections), with AN codesharing to the other destinations via Star partners.
Virgin Blue would've been swallowed up by the SQ-run AN in due course if the above happened.
