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.  
And tomatoes can be difficult to slice; too ripe, and they splatter, making catsup in that nice, clear tube. Too tough and they bend the blades of your mandoline. Onions are even worse. They seem to have realized that lettuce won't be easy to cut (so they use shredded) but that will wilt/brown much...

By Ryan Whitwam It’s very rare these days that a hotel will give you a real key when you check in. Instead, most chain hotels and mid-sized establishments have switched over to electronic locks with a keycard system. As researchers from F-Secure have discovered, these electronic locks may not be very secure. Researchers from the company have managed to create a “master key” for a popular brand of hotel locks that can unlock any door. The team began this investigation more than a decade ago, when an F-Secure employee had a laptop stolen from a hotel room. Some of the staff began to...
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...
FOR DECADES, professional golf has had a stable business model. Corporate sponsors pay millions to put their names on tournaments in deals that also require them to buy commercial time during broadcasts. That, in turn, drives more revenue to the PGA Tour through broadcast rights deals. But as with all professional sports, the landscape for the Tour is growing more complex. Traditional television viewership is in decline. Even as tournaments will pay out a record $363 million in prize money this season, Tour executives are trying to figure out how to reach a wider audience through a greater...
