Doesn't that sound ridiculously high to everyone? Wouldn't an airport like DFW or ORD only get about 800 cycles a day? Think about it--800 flights a day over say 14-16 normal operating hours (like 7am to 10 or 11pm) would mean over 50 flights/hour. That's an arrival practically every minute! And imagine during peak times!

My guess for DCA's # of flights would be somewhere between 75 and 150. I'm sure someone can back us up with the facts.

My guess would be around 350 commercial flights/day. Definitely more than 75-150. USAirways and Delta combined have more than 150/day out of DCA.

Matt, you really underestimate DCA. I guess you haven't been here. DCA has much more traffic then your SJC.

SJC - 2003
Movements - 141,620 thats about 388 commercial movements a day.


DCA - 2002
Movements - 215,691 - thats about 591 commercial movements a day.


Thats little bit more then your 75-150 flights a day prognosis.

Take care,
Rafal

Just for comparison sake, I checked the departures (11am EST, 8am PST)

DCA has 46 departues in the air right now, 37 planned departures through 1pm.

SJC has 28 departures in the air, 30 planned though 10am.
