Business class fares to Australia

    With the low cost of long haul business class fares from Europe to North America, why are business class fares so expensive from Los Angeles/San Francisco to Australia (Sydney/Brisbane)?

    Supply and demand!

    There are hundreds of flights between the U.S. and Europe every day, operated by a range of carriers, from premium to ultra low cost, to a variety of European cities. Thousands of potential seats to sell, and lots of business traffic.

    Between the U.S. and Australia/New Zealand there are maybe, a dozen flights total?
