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,...

The safety board called on the FAA to revamp federal notices alerting all pilots about runway hazards, temporarily closed strips and other airport dangers. Federal air-accident investigators recommended an array of enhanced safety systems in cockpits and on the ground to reduce hazards of airliners mistakenly landing on taxiways instead of designated runways, an increasingly dangerous trend across U.S. airports.  Tuesday's action by the National Transportation Safety Board was prompted by a July 2017 near-collision involving a landing Air Canada jet that flew roughly a dozen feet...

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...
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...
Benjamin Smith is the first foreigner to run Air France-KLM (right) Benjamin Smith, the new head of Air France-KLM, faces one overriding question: can he make peace with the same French unions who pushed out his predecessor and in 2015 stripped executives at the airline half naked, forcing them to flee over a fence?  It is a tough challenge for a self described “aviation geek” who takes over a group riven by conflict that has struggled to deal with recalcitrant unions that have cost the airline €335m in strikes in the first half of this year. Everybody knows that “what's been done...
