Three more positions and Vienna would have shown up on that list, damn you
What's interesting to see is not just the passenger numbers, but also the aircraft movements. Note how certain airports have less passengers but more movements due to the average size of aircraft there. And what I also found interesting is the rates at which airports are growing or shrinking expressed as a percentage. This is a good indication of who is catching up and who is not able to grow much more (in a ceteris paribus sitation, which as usual is not the case). But it's at least an indication

Quoting FlyAUA (Reply 13): Thanks for that post. Could you please send me a message (or post on here) why there is regulation in place to control growth at AMS? I am really interested to know more about this
It is a noise regulation. AMS is only allowed to generate so much cumulative noise over various sectors of the city during a year.
Normally by about Novemeber there are certain runways that can't even be used because that sector of the city has reached the limit for overflight noise.
I know when I lived in the Jordaan section of AMS the NW DC-10s made so much noise you wondered if they were going to make it!

go to http://www.schiphol.nl/ click on "The Schiphol group" Environment and then click on NOMOS you will see the indcatation of all the sound measeuring devices around the city, mouse over and you can see the decibel levels.

In 2004, CDG surpassed Frankfurt for the FIRST time as Europe's second busiest airport with 51.3 million passengers, which represents an evolution of 6.3 % with 2003, while Frankfurt handled 51.1 million. ORY handled 24 million passengers (+7.1%/2003). So the figures that Munich posted are not good for CDG. It's great to see ORY increases again.
About CDG, I think it has one of the biggest potential in Europe, as there is the Satellite S3 in construction which will be able to handle 9 or 10 million passengers, and an other new terminal dedicated to regional operations is expected to be built just near the satellite S3.

Has anyone information regarding the percentage of transferring passengers?
I guess that Frankfurt generates approx. 50% connecting passengers, whereas CDG or LHR are likely to be weaker. Frankfurt is a small but nice city, but there is almost no leisure or tourism traffic terminating in FRA.
Luton and these other airports must surely have more than the 12,000 pax of #88 Liegge.
What about Belfast?
What about Exeter?
What about Cardiff?
What about Bristol?
What about Rotterdam?
What about Moscow Sheremeteyevo and Vnukovo?
What about Bratislava?
What about Kiev?
What about Belgrade?
What about Thessaloniki?
What about Dresden?
What about Berlin Schonefeld and Templehof?
What about Naples?
What about Olbia?
What about Palermo?
What about Bern?
What about Ajaccio?
What about Clermont-Ferrand?
What about Liverpool?
What about Newcastle?
What about Salzburg?
I think you all get the idea.....
This list is very incomplete. The bottom is 12,000 passengers. I would bet everyone of these airports had more than that for the month of Dec2004.

I think, you are not right AF B777-300. I know the preliminary ACI-Stats, where CDG is with 51,260,363 and +6.3% is in front of FRA (51,098,271 +5.7%) but it is improbable.
I'm collecting passenger- and movement-statistics since years ago and the experience shows, that the figures at the ACI-Europe-Page are normaly more exact as the figures on the ACI-World-Website.
The other reason is, I (have) collect(ed) the monthly stats from airports-/ goverments-websites and there is also CDG barely behind FRA and 3rd on this French website there is CDG with 50,951,316 passengers also behind FRA (look at page 59.
But we will see. The finally stats by ACI World are normally available in September every year.
Btw. This year (Jan.-Apr.) CDG ist a little bit more in front of FRA like in th same time last year.
