Last week I wrote about the 10 highest revenue airline routes in the world. British Airways New York JFK – London Heathrow exceeds a billion dollars a year.
Here are the top 10 revenue routes from Dallas Fort-Worth (all airlines) using OAG data:
|DFW||New York LaGuardia||$283,352,934|
To be sure there are some limitations to OAG’s data. And overall there aren’t a lot of surprises.
Major business markets LA, Chicago, Atlanta, New York LaGuardia, and San Francisco make the list. There’s demand and there’s higher business yields that support a lot of flights.
It’s also not surprising that London Heathrow makes the list. London is the highest revenue market in the world, the top 10 worldwide route lists involved Heathrow extensively and American based in Dallas partners with British Airways and feeds a lot of London traffic.
I am surprised to see Sydney make this list. There’s one flight, albeit operated by an A380, and it’s a long flight with reasonably high fares as a result. American and Qantas have played some games with their schedules as they jockey for DOT approval of an anti-trust immunized joint business venture, in February Dallas – Sydney is scheduled to scale back to 6 times a week. Of course this list ranks only revenue, and Dallas – Sydney is also a high cost route.

Charlotte, Phoenix, and Philadelphia are no doubt aided in making the list because Dallas Fort-Worth is American’s largest hub and these are also hub cities.
