For BWIA the 3 are POS-MIA, POS-YYZ and POS-JFK, I think. Within the Caribbean itself the most profitable route is probably POS-BGI (Trinidad to Barbados), with POS-ANU (Antigua), BGI-ANU and POS-GEO (Georgetown, Guyana) also being competitive. The routes to KIN (Kingston) may also turn out to be very profitable but were largely run as a mundane service in the past. With JM competing with BW for this operation things may change.

For Lufthansa it`s the German domestic market, `cause LH is the only real German domestic carrier (unfortunately). It´s cheaper for me to fly from my homeairport HAJ to (i.e.) JFK via FRA than from HAJ to MUC.

Routes between SE Alaska and Seattle, Seattle and Anchorage, as well as intra-Alaska routes bring in a lot of money for AS. I would say those three types of routes are the most profitable, in that order. The profits from Alaska help to off-set the cost of competing with WN and UA in the lower 48.
SEA-LAX and routes to Mexico are also profitable, although not quite at the level of the others mentioned. Aircraft going to, and coming back from Mexico all get bunched up at the beginning and end of the day, so load factors are sometimes low on early morning SEA/PDX-LAX flights and evening LAX-PDX/SEA flights.
