Points to Geodesic Lines

Hi all,

 

I have a point feature class with many points.  I wish to construct geodesic lines from this feature class.

 

What would be the most efficient way to do this?  I know the 'Points to Line' tool does not take geodesy into account.

 

The 'XY to Line' tool requires start and end coordinates, which I have not prepared.  But is it necessary to design a schema that has a Xstart, Ystart and Xend, Yend fields, or is there a more efficient way to construct the lines?

 

I am running ArcGIS 10.2 Advanced.
