Well just recalling some past threads, for the U.S.A.
I think the top city/metro pairs (not airports) include,
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)
Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns,

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.

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)

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.
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.
