My home town is PHX there are a few markets that i think are way over served and i dont see how any airline could make money with so much competition. PHX to the LA which is served by WN and HP with tons of flights and UA with about 6 flights. PHX-ORD/MDW HP, WN, AA, UA, and ATA all serve this market nonstop in total there is about 20 flights there. How can there be that much demand. I dont know if there are any others but i dont see how all these flights can be filled because there are over 100 flights a day to the LA area how can you make a profit on all thos flights.
Total of 80 flights during the summer, 97 daily during the winter. Then, add in the fact that many of these flights use big planes (MIA-JFK on AA is five A300s and one 762) and there are no commuter jets. It's a huge big market, though not really overserved.

You're right MAH4546. At the last check, there are currently a total of 90 flights to MIA-FLL-PBI from JFK-EWR-LGA which ranks 2nd for flights but definitely 1st for total seats since a lot of flights to the Washington area are regional jets or turboprops.
