Are there any North American airports that have more arriving transatlantic passengers than passengers arriving from other North American destinations (measured in annual passenger volume)? Maybe SFB or PUJ?

Nope, Allegiant has a large number of flights there much more then any English charter airline. I do not think there are any.

In terms of weekly seat capacity, Pointe-a-Pitre (PTP), has about 11,500 incoming transatlantic seats and about 9800 incoming seats from North America. The transatlantic flights are all from ORY (mostly high-density):

8 TX A330-300
14 AF 777-300 ER
7 SS 747-400

The North American flights are almost exclusively from other Caribbean islands (except for a weekly AC 319-100 from YUL). These Caribbean flights are mostly commuter aircraft (except for 17 weekly AF 320).

So, while seat capacity and actual arrivals can differ considerably, it would seem that there is a decent chance that PTP has more Tatl arrivals than North American arrivals. If not, perhaps there are other Caribbean airports that might achieve this due to very limited service from the U.S./Canada, relatively light regional service, and frequent high-density European service?

I think that all airports in the Caribbean zone that receives flights from Europe as HAV, VRA, CYO, CCC, POP, OUJ, AZS, SXM,... receives more international passengers that national.
