There is lots of room for solo passengers.......just not a lot of places that are limited to only solo passengers. And I don't blame them; they can't afford to travel with any empty cabins. You can...

My Nikon DSLR, but I don't carry it with me all the time......for snapshot photos that I happen upon, I use my iPhone. The DSLR is for times when I'm planning to take pictures.

I flew the 777-300 ANZ premium economy seats to SFO from Auckland, and I found them very, very comfortable. Well worth the bump in cost from Economy, and I didn't feel badly that I hadn't paid for...

Huh?

New revenue means new revenue......whether or not it will mean more profit will depend on the costs involved. I wish that new revenue always meant more profit, but that (sadly) isn't...

Seems pretty typical to me - NYK was shopping Crystal around, and GHK bought it. That's what an acquisition (a purchase) is. It happens every day.
