I learned this week that on Korean Air Lines flights from the Americas, passengers in first and business class account for just 15 percent of travelers but about 40 percent of the carrier's revenue. 

Does this surprise you?

The source, by the way, was John Jackson, Korean's vice president of marketing for the Americas.
