Does anyone know what the most profitable shuttle is? I know that BOS-LGA, DCA-LGA and SFO-LAX were in the top 20 when I saw a list in the USA Today a couple years ago.
Thanks....

BOS-LGA...but it think the stats are a year old.
It's cost one of the highest yields of any single city pair....

Perhaps, QF CityFlyer SYD-MEL. I believe some other historically profitable shuttles like BOS-LGA, DCA-LGA and LHR-CDG have been impacted by Amtrak / Eurostar.

how is the KUL-SIN shuttle doing - probably very well, considering the high demand?
I took it last year, and it was so uncomplicated and so cheap to get tickets, and plenty seats supply... good to see taht Airline cooperation, like MH and SQ in this case, works... I got on a brandnew SQ 777, it was only 1/2 hr, but great

Copterline operates S76C's between Helsinki and Tallinn (which is btw the fastest connection in the world between the capital cities of to countries, just 18 minutes). As I've heard it's quite profitable, because it is the quickest way. By fast ferry the trip takes ~1½ hours, by plane the flight lasts 35 minutes but you have to add the time it takes to get to and from the airport etc.

Copterline's best days are when the weather is so bad that neither ferries nor planes operate.

How about some of the Japanese domestic markets like Tokyo - Osaka? I know ANA has nearly hourly departures in that market.

Air Canada, ZIP, and Westjet have the YVR/YYC route built up pretty good, i would say probly departures about every hour or so...

One of the best it's surely the FCO-LIN.

I don't know about profitable, but to me, the best run "shuttle" is WN's DAL-HOU operation. About 35 daily flights in each direction, most are pretty full, and they get you in and out very, very quickly. WN truly revolutionized intra-Texas travel, and this route is the very core of its success.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

What about AC's Rapidair flights YYZ-YUL and YOW?

CanadianNorth: Westjet boosted its summer schedule to have YVR-YYC departures every hour between 7:00 am and 9:00 pm with a break of 2 hours midday if I'm not mistaken.


EH.
