Ok the first thing just seems like messing around

The second one I like, but it doesn't sound all that new

Third one sounds like the Fly

Fourth one doesn't excite me

Largely. But airlines like Ryanair and Southwest have proven it's entirely possible to make money in an all-economy, low fares layout.

Huh. The way some people in the rail community talk, you'd think air travel is an endless stream of profits and there's no way rail could ever viably compete with air's profitability on routes like Wellington-Auckland or Sydney-Brisbane.

Well, what you quoted is a pretty extreme example. You're still usually making money on economy route, so long as you're shifting the seats for the breakeven price.

Of course, as the price of oil rises planes become less profitable across the board and the yield, business class or otherwise begins to suffer.

Short routes like Sydney-Brisbane and Wellington-Auckland don't matter for business class because you're only in the seat for so long, so most travellers either on company money or paying for themselves are more likely to choose the cheaper option or preferred airline.
