Which airport serves the most destinations let's say 2500 nm away and beyond nonstop? In other words, the airport with the most jet flight destinations 6.5 hours away or greater is... I'm not talking frequencies, but actual separate destinations. I'd assume it's probably LHR, JFK, FRA, or CDG. What do you think?

There is a lot of guessing, so if I may join in... JHS (in Greenland) is my guess. Or maybe just a remote airport in Antarctica!
Sorry guys... my dream this night didn't contain a lot of humor (it wasn't a nightmare, just an ordinary one). Being awake, now I try to catch up.

You mentioned the restrictions and it must be possible to calculate based on them.
If I were to calculate the result, I would first get a list (with the relevant info) of all the non-stop flights (on a certain day) from the maybe Top 100 airports with the most flights. Then put them into e.g. a GIS program and program this program to perform the calculations. Sorting the result afterwards will end up with the result.
It would be obvious to make comments on how much or little the traffic pattern should change before the list would change. I other words, how unstable is this list, is a close race.
Another perspective would the to include data from longer periods of time to view your question over time (historical view).
Not really the answer you were looking for US A333 PIT, but this is my idea for how to find the result you are looking for.
