Hmmm...would have thought Miami with all its Latin American flights.
Here's a thought question: Let's say we count every island in the Caribbean as an independent entity. For example, that would make St. Maarten/Sint Martin count as neither France or Netherlands (which Miami already has non-stops to), but as its own entity.
If you were to then count the number of non-stops to all the different "entities", would that put Miami over the top? And considering AA is trying to end the "hops" that it used to do in South America, is there going to be any major city without a non-stop there?

Yes, FRA lays claim to having the most nonstop destinations, so probably in the most countries too.
However don't forget that, excluding FR at HHN, FRA is the only airport for Frankfurt, and has three runways so more slots. I've always thought it would be interesting to look at which city has nonstop service to most destinations. London, with five airports, has in total a huge number of destinations on offer that I expect is considerably greater than from FRA and HHN combined. There are many airlines that for economic or slot constraint reasons cannot operate from LHR so consequently operate out of LGW (not talking about locos) instead. There are also a huge number of low cost destinations served from LTN and STN.
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward

Give you a clue - it's in reply #3 (mine!). Okay, so we're relying on a web encyclopaedia for the information so it may not be 100% correct.
Star_world, I think it's because many people don't read all the replies!
For Miami, have a look at http://www.miami-airport.com/html/cities_served_nonstop.html. Interesting only 7 European countries are served. 7 South American, 9 Central, plus Canada. That's 24, now somebody determine which Carribbean islands belong to which countries! In any case, the max is 24, giving a total of 48 max from Miami - which isn't that many!

How does SVO rank? Well, maybe SVO+DME, they probably serve all of the ex-Soviet republics, all european countries, plenty of asian countries, plus the United States (only counts as one) as well as Cuba?
