I want to know if there is another long-haul route with so many flights as this one.
About 29 daily flights :

BA : 63 flights x week
(JFK-LHR=6xday) (EWR-LHR=2xday) (JFK-LGW=1xday)

AA : 49 flights x week
(JFK-LHR=6xday) (EWR-LHR=1xday)

VS : 35 flights x week
(JFK-LHR=3xday) (EWR-LHR=1xday) (EWR-LGW=1xday)

UA : 28 flights x week
(JFK-LHR=3xday) (EWR-LHR=1xday)

CO : 21 flights x week
(EWR-LGW=2xday) (EWR-STN=1xday)

AI : 07 flights x week

KU : 03 flights x week

BA has about 1800 seats available each day.
AA has about 1300 -1500 seats daily

I can´t imagine of another long haul route that has so many flights, NYC-CDG has 11 daily flights, and is the No.2 USA-EUROPE route according to united.com

I wouldn't say it's the most "profitable" but it certainly is the most "popular".

The most profitable flying, I belive, is between the USA and NRT. High fares, LOTS of cargo..that makes for very profitable flying.

Is it profitable to fly EWR-LHR on BA with 30 passengers in World Traveller Class? (That was on my last flight)

I don't think so...

Dont forget, ALL BA flights between LHR and JFK are on 744, so must be something there.

When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Charvette has a point. AA flies fully packed A300s in a domestic configuration (highest density in their fleet) and as I said they are flying down there full. This is definetly very profitable, as well as the fact that they have huge dominance over the route. ALSO though. I think United SFO-IAD service has to be HUGELY profitable. There is little to no competition on the route, as well as many high yield passengers coming out of both sides.

Consider the Taipei-Hong Kong route. There are 34 daily flights in each direction, almost all on widebodies (747-400, 777, MD-11, A330/340). Huge profits are likely, as many people are "captive" to flying this route because direct air link between Taiwan and mainland China is forbidden. More flights will begin soon as Dragonair is now permitted to serve this route along with the incumbents China, Cathay and EVA.

I think that TPE-HKG is more profitable, but is shorter than NYC-LON.

And besides I´m talking about long haul routes, not domestic as SFO-IAD, or AA´s domestic A300.

The only narrow body flight between NYC-LON is CO´s EWR-STN.

CO uses 764, 777 to LGW
AA uses 4 AB6, 2 777 and 1 763 for their 7 daily flights.
BA uses 6 744 and 2 777 for their 8 daily flights
UA uses 2 777 and 2 763 for their 4 daily flights
VS uses 744 for their 5 daily flights.
AI uses 744
KU uses 777

Besides NYC-LON is one the most used routes by "premium passengers "
