Delta - ATL-LGW
Continental - EWR-LGW
Northwest - DTW-NRT

That is right I forgot the route. Since it had been a while since they flew that route.

DTW-NRT is not NW's flagship route. In the 1990s, NW1 -- MSP-LAX-NRT-BKK -- and DTW-PEK severed that honor. Today, MSP-LAX has been dropped from NW1 and DTW-PEK n/s has been cancelled. I think it's hard to argue that NW has a "flagship" route; DTW-AMS-BOM could get just as much consideration as any other route.

Actually CO's "flagship" route is CO 1 IAH-HNL-GUM/CO 2 GUM-HNL-IAH (HNL-GUM and GUM-HNL is operated by Continental Micronesia).

At present, US 1 is DCA-PIT-LAX; US 2 is FLL-PHL-CO / LIRF), Italy">FCO and US 3 is CO / LIRF), Italy">FCO-PHL-FLL.

AA 1 flies JFK-LAX while AA 2 flies LAX-JFK

WN 1 flies DAL-HOU (continuing to HRL on Sat.) and WN 2 flies HOU-DAL-LIT (DAL-HOU being their first city pair)

HP 1 flies PHX-ORD

While I would agree that Continentals flight #1 is the HNL flight, I would say that the HKG flight #99 is probably considered the flagship route as no one else flies it, it is generally the longest flight.

JFK-LAX and LAX-JFK are certainly routes AA has served since god knows when, but I think JFK-LHR-JFK takes the top notch. I could be wrong.

AA labels all of it's international flights as "International Flagship Service" so just pick a random international route and that's the flagship lol.

OK, this is debatable, but I would think that CX's flagship routes would be HKG-LHR and HKG-YVR!

They lobbied for a long time with the British government to get rights to fly to London (first to LGW, and from the late 80's/early 90's to LHR), but had been discriminated against as a minor player from a British colony to protect BA (BOAC at that time I think)! It was a major milestone when they were finally allowed to fly the route (used to stop in Bahrain before the 747-400 era!).

As for YVR, CX "took the aviation world by storm" as famously quoted on all their press releases about their YVR ops when they launched this route in 1983. In some ways, this opened the door for YVR that it has become the impressive gateway that it is today, and along with it the influx of immigration from Hong Kong before the handover to the Chinese. CX has now extended their flight from YVR to JFK since 1996.
