SFO - FRA has to be incredibly profitable . Only Lufthansa and Unites fly it (codeshare partners ). Regular economy for the rest of the year is around 2300 USD round trip and closer to the flight it’s around 3500. It’s completely ridiculous compared to other more competitive routes like London.
Sydney to Melbourne is #2 and is barely a 1 hour flight.
Bit stupid crunching it by revenue. Obviously the long routes generate the most rev, but they also have the highest fuel costs.
I am flabbergasted that Qantas has the #2 slot for Melbourne-Sydney! No wonder players like Compass and OzJet tried to shoulder into that market (with little success) 10 or 20 years ago. I know of a couple of friends who live in one city and literally commute to the other every day/week for work,...

Uber Technologies Inc. scored a legal victory over drivers on Tuesday after a federal appeals court dismantled the class-action status of a lawsuit that sought to reclassify independent contractors as employees, with possible broader implications for the so-called gig economy.  A panel of judges at the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that some 240,000 ridehail drivers who had sought to be certified as a class to challenge their worker classification would have to pursue their claims individually in arbitration.  The judges found that Uber's contract with drivers...

A London-based company that owns and operates dozens of famous hotels, from the Cipriani in Venice to the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, is up for sale after years of rebuffing its many suitors.  The move by Belmond Ltd. to explore the market now is the latest sign that luxury travel is booming after an extended downturn, when many leisure travelers and businesses shunned paying up for high-end accommodations.  Belmond said in a U.S. securities...
WangXing, co-founder of Meituan Dianping, aspires to “make life better for everyone”, says the prospectus for the world's largest food delivery company, which floated this month in Hong Kong at a value of $53bn. That is an impossible dream, but his company is changing how millions eat.  Uber's on-demand taxi service used to be the ultimate disrupter, but rides for people are being challenged by delivery of food. Motorcycles and bikes speed around cities, carrying meals for millennials without the time or inclination to cook themselves. Uber hopes to grab more of an expanding market in...
