I know AA has the largest presence at SJU, but who is next in line? For the matter who is second in the islands overall. Who flies to the most destinations and who carries the most people?

After AA, DL is probably the next largest airline at SJU, but they are insignificant compared with AA's presence.

It's probably either CO or US.

AA is -- by far -- the largest airline in the Caribbean basin, with the most destinations and the most passengers. No other airline even comes close.

I think US or DL is next. DL has 2 763s and 2 757s out of ATL, not to mention the 2 song flights out of both JFK and MCO. US has 2 762's out of CLT and a 333, 762, and 757 out of PHL

When I was in SJU in November, waiting 4 hours for our Delta flight, US had several more flights than Delta that arrived and departed.

Thats what I thought, US operates more widebodies than DL and also flies more flights to more cities.

Out of SJU US goes to:
PHL
PIT
CLT
BOS
FLL?
DCA?
LGA?

Now that I count up the seats, DL has over 500 seats more than US to SJU. I know a couple of those flights arrive at about the same time. I was at the Bacardi rum factory a couple of months ago and remember seeing a DL 763 landing and then a couple minutes later a song flight. So many of them might arrive and take off at the same time.

Oops. When doing my counts i missed the BOS flight. I dont think they have a PIT direct flight, though.

If you are interested, Caribbean Sun is number two on number of flights out of SJU with all of their Dash 8s. There are a lot of flights, but the capacity is a lot lower on each plane.

If anyone is interested, US Airways codeshares on Caribbean Sun flights to:
St. Thomas
St. Croix
Antigua
St. Martin,
St. Kitts

For international flights (no propeller/RJ, outside the inter-island services), CM may be the largest, they fly SJU twice daily.

I have a 1hr 10m connection on a Saturday in March. I assume this is good enough?

DL is also insignificant compared to the power of the force.  Silly

You're coming from the U.S.? You realize that Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and therefore this would be a domestic flight, right?

Hey, that isn't as bad as this one.

I'm eating dinner at the airport restaurant in SJU and the guy in the next booth is talking about how he doesnt have a passport to get into the Dominican Republic (they weren't going to take his birth certificate). So he gets on his cell phone and starts calling people asking for the phone number to the US Embassy in Puerto Rico.

I didn't have the heart to tell him to find out where there was a passport office or that he might get further calling the office in Miami. It was five o'clock anyways, he was going to end up paying the DR Customs guy $50 US at least to get in that evening.

Um, yes. I know that Puerto Rico is part of the US. I have flown through SJU before. I've never used it as a port entry though.

When arriving from another country, I assume that you have to go through customs. Since The Netherlands Antilles is another country, I expect to go through customs upon arrival...

On peak times, customs is a pain. It will take you about 30-45 minutes to go through customs. There is a long walk from the gate (that is one of the biggest complains) to the customs clearance area.

AA is. They flew twice a day to SDQ only[not counting other international destinations].
Ergo, AA is the largest even for international flights at SJU.

The topic is: After AA Who Is The Largest Carrier In SJU
Very important to pay attention to the "After AA" !
The topic starter is clearly asking about other airlines flying into SJO, not about AA.

Just checked my work but for some reason can't edit my post.

US:
PIT (2 weekly Sat/Sun)

DL
MCO (13 weekly)

gives US a total of 54 weekly flts and DL 57

WRONG. [Use the edit button for corrections].
1) I don't see SJO in the whole thread until you mentioned it.
2) Also, don't see the word "international" routes in the initial thread.
This thread is about, as you said, "who is the largest carrier in SJU" after AA.

DL is. Far ahead US and even more than CM.

25 2travel2know : WoW at least we agree insomething...
26 BestWestern : Based on Summer 2005 seat capacity the results are as follows: American Airlines 61% Delta Air Lines 7% JetBlue Airways Corporation 6% US Airways 5% C
27 SHUPirate1 : If you're coming from Aruba, you can instead expect to clear customs there.
28 WorldTraveler : According to DOT data, for the year ended May 2005, AA carried 48.71% of passengers out of SJU, Executive carried 14.78%, DL carried 7.78%, US 6.22%,
29 ReguPilot : I would say that US is the behind AA and then DL and then B6, then CO. There are some times in a day, where you would see 3 US planes landing in a row
30 Humberside : Im surprised there isnt a CVG flight Any chance of DCA-SJU in the future or is SJU beyond perimeter?
31 Nomadic : I will be flying San Juan to Albany, New York on 2 April. Should I be looking at DL or US for the best connection, aircraft, service. Connecting time
32 SHUPirate1 : You just answered your own question. US Airways has applied for a Washington (National)-San Juan beyond-perimeter exception in the past, but it was s
33 SHUPirate1 : If you're looking for quickest, the answer is actually none of the above. Continental's quickest connection at 5 hours, 46 minutes (SJU-476-EWR-2314-
34 Rampero : Remember that CO, B6 flying from BQN and PSE too. CO BQN x 1 daily to EWR PSE x 1 daily to EWR B6 BQN x 2 daily to JFK PSE x 1 daily to JFK My opinion
35 Nomadic : Thanks for the information. This looks like my best bet. I have used UAL through Dulles before but that 9:45 flight to Albany always seems to depart
36 Post contains images Jean Leloup : Aruba is not part of the Netherlands Antilles, so perhaps we should still give him the benefit of the doubt. Great topic, btw. I'm fascinated by all
37 Humberside : Do you know why?
38 Quickmover : Wasn't TWA #2 down there in 1999 or 2000?
39 AirScoot : I thought TW only had flights JFK-SJU and MCO-SJU?
40 Quickmover : They called it a focus city towards the end. 5 or 6 daily from JFK, along with BOS, STL, MCO, LAX and I think FLL.

45 BigGSFO : Didn't they have connecting service from SJU to AUA and SXM too? I know they applied for SJU-CCS but that never materialized.
