This has been discussed monthly, so a search will find more detailed results. However, in the United States the most traveled "air bridge" in 2002 was between South Florida and New York City, which outsed the typically top seeded New York City to Boston and Washington routes which have suffered as people start to take Acelea. However, that route includes people who make connections in ATL, etc. In people flying exclusivley non-stop, FLL-JFK is the most traveled route over 750mi (followed by JFK-LAX), and I believe LGA-DCA is most traveled under 750 miles (followed by LGA-BOS) Other most traveled routes in the United States are from New York City to Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Orlando, from Los Angeles to the Bay Area, Honolulu to Maui, South Florida to Orlando and Tampa, Houston to Dallas, Chicago to the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Seattle...just to name a very few.

Internationally, the most traveled route to Asia is Honolulu to Tokyo Narita; Caribbean is Miami to Nassau; Mexico is Los Angeles to Mexico City; Canada is Chicago to Toronto; Central America is Miami to San Jose; South America is Miami to Sao Paulo; Europe is New York City to London Heathrow.

Outside of the US, some of the world's most traveled routes include Madrid to Barcelona; Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro; Tokyo Narita to Sapparro; and Sydney to Melbourne.

BestWestern,
No way!... World largest international city pair is TPE-HKG. If you consider, for political reasons, that both TPE and HKG are Chinese soil, then you still have a number of international routes with more traffic than DUB-LON.

I can think in the following:
London-Paris
Bangkok-HongKong
Tokio-HongKong
even
Buenos Aires-Santiago (which is rather large, believe it or not).

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

He meant Rio to Sao Paolo. As I recall SDU-CGH may well have more flights than any other airport-pair, but if somebody can count more anywhere else...

When you do not count all three, I believe FLL-JFK still is the most traveled now. November to April, it is 15 jetBlue A320s and 6 Delta 757s a day. That's about

It ain't be that large like London-Dublin or London-Paris, but these will be trunk routes in Asia.

HND-CTS; 45+ daily flights mostly by 777 or 747
GMP-PUS, GMP-CJU; 50+ daily flights each way and 5.5M passengers in 2002
ICN-NRT; 20 daily flights. 3M+ passengers annually.
HKG-TPE; 23 daily flights (many are cancelled though  Big thumbs up)

All of 4 are under 750mi.

DFW-ORD/ORD-DFW get it's fair share of traffic,

As MAH4546 mentioned Sydney-Melbourne is a very well travelled route, for example tomorrow Qantas operates 30 flights in Boeing 737-800s, 767-200/300s, 747-400s and Airbus A330-200s, whilst Virgin Blue operates 19 flights in Boeing 737-700/800s, for a total of 49 non-stop flights.
In addition to this a few overseas carriers operate between Sydney and Melbourne, ie United with the 747-400.

To add to AJ's comments I think before ansett collapsed and all, SYD-MEL was getting 6million pax a year, with about 60 flights a day. Now thats what I call a top route!

So are we agreed that

SYD MEL - largest domestic route (within one country)
DUB LON - largest international route (Between two countries)
