I'm sure Northwest is amongst the top four.


Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

I would think that it would either be Delta or USAir for #1, American, United.

It depends on what metric you're using. Seats and departures are probably the two most common metrics.

By seats, it's AA, then DL, then US.

By departures, it's AA, then US, then DL.

By mainline departures, it's US, then AA, then DL.

By destinations, it's AA, then US, then DL.

AA is the largest by a little bit, then US/DL.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

A330323X,

Where's that info from? By mainline flights, US leads at BOS, followed by DL, and then AA. Also, DL carries the most passengers at BOS. So it's hard to say who's the largest, they all have their pluses. DL carrying the most PAX, AA serving the most destinations, and US having the most flights.

The AA/DL numbers I was looking at were a few months old, so it's possible things could have changed a little bit, especially since they're all so close to each other.

So it's hard to say who's the largest, they all have their pluses.

Just what I said, it just depends on what metric you use.

No debating that they're clearly the top three, though.
