What would you say your airport's most important flight is?

I think JFK's would be Northwest 17 to Tokyo. It's always packed (cargo and passengers).

Thanks, for some reason this topic interests me.

Important...defined as what?

Frequency?

Number of pax?

Largest plane?

Bragging rights?

For MSN it would probably be (and I'm gonna list routes and airlines because I don't know the flight #s) NW MSN-MSP and AA MSN-ORD. Wish it was Midwest Airlines MSN-MKE and I wish we had Midwest MSN-MCI, but that ain't gonna happen.

For Islip (ISP/KISP) I would guess it would be Southwest Airlines to MDW or BWI, because from those 2 airports you can connect to just about anywhere Southwest flies too.

MEX

Frequencies: CO's service to IAH (international) and AM's service to MTY (domestic).
Packed flight: any of the flights to Europe during the summer season.
Profitable: AM's flights to Europe.
Coolest plane: IB's flights to MAD on A346's and RG's flights to GRU (via CUN on Saturday) on 772's.
Exotic destination: JL's MEX-YVR-NRT.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Out of good ol' Grand Forks, ND the only commercial route is NW GFK-MSP, so that would have to qualify as numero uno. FedEx also sends some 727s back and forth from Memphis...

Other than that, the only important flight is my own... out to the practice area and back.. woooo!

For ROC, my former home airport, it would be B6's flights to JFK. NYC is the biggest destination from the airport, and JetBlue fills up all 5 flights daily. Without JetBlue, there'd only be US serving the route at three times the price.

As for my new home airport, JFK, it's most likely any flight to LHR. A lot of people that want to go to London or smaller cities within Europe or Western Europe take connections at LHR because there are no non-stops from the U.S, yet there are so many flights to choose from at LHR.

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

For DTW, it's gotta be the DTW-AMS ones. After that, it'd be DTW-NRT.

For TPA I think its BA's flights to LGW on a 777, although we aren't lacking widebodies.  Big grin

MSP would be to AMS. It went to 3 times daily and is staying that way for the first time ever during the winter.

Do not forget about JAL, and AA might even be in there.

I agree: LHR is an important route for JFK.

EK's JFK-DXB is probably a very prominent route for JFK.

For LGA, I would say the ATL routes (DL fills up numerous 767s a day) and FLL (many airlines fly there).

For EWR: Singapore EWR-SIN.

I think we can all guess what the most important route at JFK was.

Here at LAX, I would have to argue SQ's nonstop SIN-LAX-SIN as the most important in terms of impressiveness.

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

LH's FRA flights out of HAJ seem to be the most important IMO. Those "feeders" allow easy connections to wherever you want to go.

Kuala Lumpur - Heathrow

Malaysia Airlines flagship route MH001/002, plus there's no more competition from BA.

For MIA and FLL it has to be to NYC all three of them. Also MIA-NAS and MIA/FLL-MCO and MIA-LHR
MIA-NAS is very important to Bahamains.

Must agree with FlyMia on this one...

1. NYC Area (JFK,LGA,EWR) - An AA market at MIA

2. NAS, FPO - AA, Bahamasair, Gulfstream

3. LHR ( BA 2x Daily, AA 2x Daily, VS 1 daily)

4. MAD (Best selling route in the U.S. for IB - 1 daily and AA 1 daily)

5. SJU/SDQ - San Juan and Santo Domingo huge markets at MIA. AA dominated flights.

Notable and also very important markets:

MIA-EZE, MIA-SCL, MIA-GIG, MIA-GRU, MIA-CCS, MIA-BOG, MIA-MCO, MIA-TPA
