Most common is probably NYC-London, and it is probably the most competitive. Not exactly sure about the most frequent though.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

jetBlue flies FLL-JFK up to 21X daily in peak time...plus, what, 7X daily to LGA this fall?

Well BCN to MAD by IB has got to be the most frequent in 1 day by a single airline. There is roughly 45 return services per day by Iberian alone.

Probably the most flights for a single city pair would have to be SYD-MEL with 61 return services per day (this is the third busiest city pair in the world in terms of passengers)

QF has up to 34 return services per day
DJ has up to 24 return services per day
JQ has up to 3 return services per day

Well just recalling some past threads, for the U.S.A.

I think the top city/metro pairs (not airports) include,
NYC-So. Florida
Houston-Dallas
LA-SF/Bay area

I know the Houston-Dallas routes include Southwest (HOU-DAL, IAH-DAL), Continental (IAH-DAL, IAH-DFW), Delta (DFW-IAH, DFW-HOU), and American (DFW-HOU, DFW-IAH) (plus their regionals on the same routes)

In the US, by passengers and flights, it's NYC-MIA/FLL/PBI. B6 has 18 daily flights from JFK-FLL/PBI, DL has 14 daily between LGA/JFK-FLL/PBI, and AA has 24 daily flights between LGA/EWR/JFK-FLL/MIA/PBI. Other airlines also serve this route as well. NYC-South Florida is also the largest O&D market in the US with over 7,000 daily PAX, NYC-Los Angeles area is second.

I believe PHX-LAS and LAS-PHX would most certainly be up there with all of the flights HP and SW fly to/from their hubs..........around 30 each way everyday!

There's over 50 flights a day between Amsterdam and London (not all to the same airport of course, but over half to Heathrow).

I doubt there's that many flights between Heathrow and Kennedy  Smile

My 2 cents would go to:

1. NYC - LONDON
2. MAD - BCN (Iberia's "Puente Aereo")
3. NYC - SOFLA (MIA,FLL,PBI)

Has there always been this level of demand for NY-FLL or is this just enhanced since B6 began? That's a huge number of flights.

I know that out of the top 20 routes in the U.S., at least 10 begin and end in New York.
Boston
Washington, DC
Fort Lauderdale
Los Angeles
Chicago
Dallas
To name a few.

NYC-South Florida is also the largest O&D market in the US with over 7,000 daily PAX, NYC-Los Angeles area is second.

Actually, there are more than 16,000 O&D passengers per day on MIA-NYC, which is now probably America's most traveled route (not long ago it was Los Angeles-Bay Area). This winter, eight airlines (plus El Al and Universal Guyana, though neither has local traffic rights) will offer nearly 120 daily flights between South Florida and New York City. During the "slower" summer period, there are about 95-100 daily flights on the same eight airlines.


Five busiest from NYC:
New York City-Miami (16,369)
New York City-Los Angeles (9,664)
New York City-Orlando (8,194)
New York City-Chicago (7,107)
New York City-San Francisco (6,697)

There has always been high demand, though after jetBlue came, numbers from FLL especially did soar. There are now less airlines serving NYC-MIA (UA and US have dropped), but lots more capacity, and flights still manage to go out full all the time. On a similar note, NYC-MIA is AmTrak's second most traveled train corridor, after the Northeast corridor.

That's right about B6 already service to FLL and load factors was very high on their flights to JFK & LGA (Sept 17, 2004). I am sure will see how is they was doing on their way to LGA.

How about Washington to New York.

USAir and Delta hourly shuttles. American Shuttles, not hourly but close. United flights from Dulles and soon independent air 15x iad-ewr.
