London-Heathrow to New York-JFK is the World's Only Billion-Dollar Airline Route

Aggiunto
 
The globe is criss-crossed a million times over with flight routes, buzzing with planes throughout the day. Sometimes market forces and competitive advantage come together to make some routes more lucrative than others.

More international flights by airlines from Manchester and we do not have to fly to Heathrow for onward destinations flying BA

CNN as a source? LOL
this article is propaganda. no mention of the gimpo/jeju route in south korea. just the sheer number of butts in the seats is staggering. 50% more than the syd/mel route alone.
IF the nyc to lon route is the highest grossing it is only because they are overpriced seats. and shifting said profits to cover other shortcomings.

I took the Gimpo-Jeju route a few times and while the number of seats might be staggering, the cost per seat isn'T. It's easy to find fares for that route as low as 20$ and at most 100$.

Agreed on the "propaganda" bit. Paid advertising masquerading as a news item. Even the photos straight from the airline's glossy brochure.

I just checked and no $100,000 fare exists with BA. The most expensive I could find in F class is £14,318 ($17,391.83USD). That's r/t for Sunday, returning the next day from London.
Now if you are referring to a private jet - then it's possible.
