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,...
When you buy a can of diced tomatoes, how do you think were they diced? Do you think it was done manually? I'm pretty sure slicing and dicing vegetables is a problem that has been solved at industrial scale a long time ago.

Creator’s transparent burger robot doesn’t grind your brisket and chuck steak into a gourmet patty until you order it. That’s just one way this startup, formerly known as Momentum Machines, wants to serve the world’s freshest cheeseburger for just $6. On June 27th, after eight years in development, Creator unveils its first robot restaurant before opening to the public in September. We got a sneak peek…err…taste. When I ask how a startup launching one eatery at a time could become a $10 billion company, Creator co-founder and CEO Alex Vardakostas looks me dead in the eye and says, “the...
Though it usually deals in metrics like the world’s busiest airline routes or the longest flights, Official Airline Guide (OAG) has now compiled and released the list of flights earning the most revenue worldwide, which provides a fascinating snapshot into the changing headwinds of the aviation industry. OAG is an air travel information and intelligence agency that tracks data from the world’s airlines, airports, government agencies and air travel-related service companies. OAG gathered data on airline revenues from April 2017-March 2018 to create a list of commercial flights earning...
In the mid-1950s, Burger King had only a few struggling outlets in Florida, plagued with hamburger-broiling contraptions that frequently broke down.  Dave Edgerton, one of the founders, was running out of patience. Finally, incensed with yet another machine meltdown, he pulled a hatchet from his toolbox and smashed one of the stainless steel cookers, according to a memoir by his partner, James McLamore. Mr. Edgerton then bellowed: “I can build a better machine than this pile of junk.”  His tantrum was the start of a turnaround that put Burger King on track to become a serious...
About 20,000 cabin cleaners, baggage handlers, restaurant staff and other minimum-wage workers at New York's three major airports could receive a substantial pay raise, following a proposal Thursday by the Port Authority of New York and Jersey.  Executive Director Rick Cotton proposed a phased increase that would raise wages annually, reaching $19 an hour in 2023, at a Port Authority board meeting in Jersey City, N.J. Currently, workers at Newark Liberty International Airport earn $10.45 an hour. In New York, where a state minimum-wage law passed in 2016, employees at John F. Kennedy...
WHEN JOHN WEBB takes his family to California, Washington and Oregon for vacation from his home in Dutchess County, N.Y., they don't fly or drive. They travel hooked to the back of an Amtrak train in a 1950s-era private railcar that Mr. Webb spent three years and nearly $1 million restoring.  Traveling across the country by private rail takes a lot of planning, requiring connections to various trains and layovers. But Mr. Webb, 35, says he and his 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter prefer it to their family's second home in the Adirondacks because every day they wake up somewhere...
