Just wondering which is Northwest's biggest international market. NRT and AMS inmediately come to mind. Also, is NW or CO the biggest US airline in Asia?

As for your first question, NW is definately bigger in NRT than AMS, due to their extensive Asian operation, but if you include KL in AMS, I would say that operation is bigger.

As for your second question, I would think NW, as a lot of CO flying in Asia is done by CO Micronesia.

I was under the impression that CO Micronesia was the samething as CO.

Juventus is correct... CO Micronesia IS Continental... it is not a separate entity.

And yes, NW is bigger in Asia.

The feed is larger in AMS because of the traffic generated from Africa, and SW Asia and Europe. Our stand alone operation in NRT/Japan is obviously bigger because of the onward traffic is most on NW-operated aircraft.

Northwest is significantly larger larger in Asia than CO. Roughly six times larger.

KAI: The airline code is the same as Continental (CO). The term "Micronesia" is evidently just a holdover from the time when it was a separate division after the acquisition. But the Guam hub's results are not separated from the rest of the company, financially or operationally. I believe the aircraft based in Guam no longer carry the Micronesia title either.

TWFirst, judging from the only recent pic in the database, you are correct about the paint. I just can't see why it would have a codeshare flight number if they are the same company....?

I think NW carries more passengers from NRT than AMS, plus a lot more cargo . I think NRT is bigger than AMS, even with KLM's codesharing business
