It's not surprising that SYD
is profitable for QF
, Airlines have been pulling out of this route for years...CO
, then ANZ, which leaves UA
with a small share and the rest goes to Qantas. In fact..it's often hard to get seats on these flights and the route is clearly underserved in terms of capacity. Hopefully the entry of SQ
and/or Virgin or CX
will spice things up a bit.
What about US-Asia long hauls...haven't heard much about these. LAX
-HK, Vancouver to hong kong, etc. Competitive, but profitable? I'n not sure-the SQ
fare to LAX
return in ridiculously cheap. (sometimes, just over 1000 sing dollars. Not that profitable then? Does anyone know.
