On any number of airlines? That's impossible.

On only one airline? There are probably a whole bunch.

DAL comes to mind (56+ seats)

That is unless you do the "Texas Two-Step" or buying two tickets, one to the W.A. airport (i.e. HOU) and one to DAL

I was bored one evening, and I know there are no flights into Delaware at all commercially as far as I could find.

You mean one that does not have commercial service?

Stockton (SCK)?

Or an airport with a commercial flight to another airport where you can NOT switch to another flight to another city? Maybe a seaport...

New England Airlines flies between Westerly, RI and Block Island, RI.

No connections to anywhere at either airport.

Scenic at VGT. (Las Vegas)

They are the only airline, and the airports they serve, they are usually the only airline...so interlining to anywhere is hard from VGT.

yes, one with commercial service. in other words, is there an airport in the country where, no matter how many connections you make and how many airlines you fly on, you simply can't get to another airport?

i know -- strange question, but i'm trying to figure out exactly how good the air transportation system is in the US.

No matter what, I cannot connect to Sanford-Orlando from STL.

I have tried to fly to Sanford FROM STL, but no connection allows me the opportunity. If someone can prove me wrong, please do so!!

IAG (Niagara Falls, NY) has no scheduled service, but they do have a terminal, parking, and everything to support an airport.

Quoting Tockeyhockey (Thread starter):

A very open-ended question... By air taxi service, it is indeed possible, no doubt, to fly from any public airport in the U.S. to any other -- if time and cost are not considerations.

If the question can be interpreted to mean (as I am guessing) is it possible to fly by scheduled air carrier from any airport served by the same to any other such airport, again the answer is about 99.8 percent yes. If we consider co-terminals as the same city (Sanford/Orlando or Port Columbus/Rickenbacker as examples) then my answer is essentially 100 percent yes. What the cost will be and how many days and airlines and transfers it will take to go between some of the lesser-served airports with scheduled airline service will be unacceptable (except for the most avid air travel "fanatics" with lots of time and money) to the alternative of flying between airports with reasonably good service at reasonable cost, and traveling by automobile, bus or train to reach the city(ies) to/from which one is traveling.
