A) Does not see a single 747?

B) Does not see a single widebody?

I'd be extremely surprised if both airports were not in the United States, but I've been surprised like that before...could somebody answer that for me?

Those, BTW, are supposed to be two separate questions...also, I am referring to in terms of passengers...now that I've done some digging, I'd be shocked to find the first answer NOT be dAAllAAs-Fort Worth...

Criteria B makes criteria A irrelevant, because the 747 is a widebody.

Are there any passenger widebodies at Frankfurt Hahn?

If not DCA, it could be MDW now that the expansion has been completed.

Do John Wayne or STN take widebodies? If not, they're good candidates.

Busy "smaller" airports:
- BMA
- LCY
- Frankfurt Hahn

LCY is not big at all, there are much larger airports that don't have a widebody service. I'm pretty sure MDW is up there somewhere, I don't know the passenger figures but its much bigger than LCY and HHN.

Would guess PHX is the busiest airport without 747s and DCA the busiest without widebodies.

STN is a very busy one-runway airport, what with FR alone having 25 (or thereabouts) flights in a one-hour period at particular times of the day, especially during the early morning.

The Essex airport handles 74Fs on a regular basis.

A) Surely DFW (excluding 74F operations).

B) Probably a domestic US airport serving a city that has its own international airport and runways not long enough to permit widebodies, so possibly DCA/MDW. STN would be a possibility but are there charters operating with 767s from there?

The first question is sooo easy!!!

It's my hometown airport of Dallas Fort Worth (DFW)!!

It had a proud history of 747 use in the 1970's with Delta, AA, Braniff all using 747's. In the 1980's, Lufthansa and Thai and AA continued the use of 747's.

In the 1990's, while Thai was gone, and LH switched to a 343, JAL and Korean Air used 747's, but, alas, JAL left and Korean switched to a 777.

DFW is a hub for MD-80's, 757's, 767's, and a few 777's. Sadly, DFW is not a leisure destination and thus for this and other reasons doesn't have many foreign carriers, loses them quickly with any downturn in the economy, and has no need for any huge widebody like the 747.

In Texas, for a 747, go to IAH, where you can easily see a KLM Combi every day....

Back home at SAN we didnt get any regular 747 service, but there were DC-10 and A310 freighters, and a few DL/AA/UA 767s.

Yes 0.03% of departures from ATL are B744s. KE operates B744s 5/7 to ATL from ICN.

LGA must be right up there

With 343,843 annual movements in 2002, LGA was the 36th busiest airport in terms of aircraft movements. But you are right, they have no B747 service.

For the 747 question, I guess that it depends upon cargo movements since to my latest knowledge, DFW still received 747 freighters.

As for no widebodies, I am sure that you mean busy in terms of commercial operations, but just operations alone, Van Nuys, CA is way up the list. However, I get the feeling that you may be interested in results based upon commercial figures.

With 280,737 movements in 2002 it ranked 45th in terms of aircraft movements.. and of course has no B747 service.
