And currently, the actual aircraft that goes LAX to SYD as flight 41 leaves ATL as flight 195. That is the true direct flight to SYD. Same arrival gate at LAX as the departure to SYD as flight 41.

DL Definitely manipulating the JFK-SYD as "direct" in the reservation systems mostly to prevent double connections from appearing from northeastern cities who don't have nonstops to LAX.
