One of BA's and, presumably, VS's most lucrative routes is LHR-LOS. I assume BA's LHR-ABV and VS's LHR-PHC are also lucrative. In fact, most flights to West, East and Southern Africa (except South Africa) are normally very expensive.

Maybe somebody wanted to talk about this topic now. I suppose because it's been disscussed many times in the past--we can no longer talk about it? If that's the case how come I keep hearing W. tell us how good the war in Iraq is going?

Codeshare: Absolutely, the trans-Atlantic gateways are traditionally very profitable for airlines. However, with the extensive competition by the European and American airlines, profits (especially in Economy) are somewhat watered down removing the possibility of them being the most profitable routes for the companies.
On that note however, I do believe JFK-LHR is one of AA's most profitable routes, and that's why they also provide a 'shuttle' much like BA, with 6 daily flights.

For Swiss, I heard that the Geneva- New York route, which is called "United Nations Bus" is very lucrative. This flight is everyday full in F and C and often in Y.
Another LX route which was very profiatble is the Zurich-Malabo route.

That's perfectly fine. Just gets old seeing the same stuff over and over...and over...and over again. That's why I've stopped starting forums w/ WN as the topic b/c no matter what it is, it always turns into a mudslinging fest.

Ok Mr. Sensitive. I don't know where I said that, but there are certain topics that are talked about TOO much.
If that's the case how come I keep hearing W. tell us how good the war in Iraq is going?
Now I agree with you there. I know from firsthand experience it's not going that great.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but for BD, their most profiable route is LHR-BHD with 8 rotations a day. The flights are generally close to full all day every day.
However there used to be 16 flights a day when BA served the route from BFS, so I can only assume the traffic is there. Looking at other carriers, both BE and U2 fly to London up to 20 times daily between them. There is so much demand.

EWR-TLV is so profitable partially by the economy, as in my opinion CO has got LY beat as far as C Class quality,but by how many Business seats at high prices you can pack on those 2 daily 777s.
