Do you have a source for that? That's certainly higher than any public figure I can find - and the subsidies on both SYD-RAR and RAR to LAX are heavily analysed. The subsidy payments are a maximum amount payable, they are not a guaranteed payment.

Wellington City Council agreed to pay SQ a year fee for 10 years with no public consultation, no paper trail and no public disclosure. Nobody can say exactly what the details are because these simply are not known.
