Air Canada needs Africa. They already fly to 5 other continents. Lufthansa needs Australia to cover all continents, they serve at least 200 cities in 100 countries world wide. I do Believe BA flies to all continents.

EK does NOT fly to South America.

Quoting DFWMzuri (Reply 3):

YES they do.

AF will be just behind by also serving all continents, the difference with BA being that they do not serve the mainland of Oceania (ie Australia), but only an island which is part of Oceania (PPT).



Second part of the question: maximum # of countries!!!! AF and LH should rank quite high, followed closely by BA and KL probably. Which US airline is very strong on the Caribbean (AA?) and hence would also serve lots of countries?



When I doubt... go running!

If and when AC ever flies to Africa, what do you think will be their first city?

CO, I believe, serves the most countries among US airlines. AA would come second.

American Airlines does serve every independent country in North America except St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

North and South America are always counted as two seperate continents....although, technically, they are a contiguous land mass.....but then Europe and Asia is even more glaring.....they should never have been counted as two seperate continents....it's a complete twisting of rules to divide Western countries and 'Asian' countries - a legacy of the British, French and others, I suppose....

Nope, those are "Sub-Continents." South America is DEFINITELY its own continent.

I believe this debate is a matter of different cultures teaching things differently in their school systems. European children are taught that Americas is one continent.

America is technically one continent but it's usually divided into North, Central and South for convenience.

It's not just about landmasses, it's about tectonic plates, continental drift, etc. Calm down, it's a geographical thing, not a political thing.  Smile

Your point about it being a geographical thing is absolutely right....so please educate me on how Europe and Asia are two continents!! If we go by the logic of tectonic plates (which is definitely not the way continents are defined), I suspect that a lot of other continents would need to be divided....the strict definition is that a continent is one contiguous land mass, surrounded on ALL sides by water....

No buddy, it is VERY MUCH a political thing.....albeit, a convenient division created by people who are long ago gone....no reflection on governments or communities existing today.....

Anyways, this is just for discussion sake and my personal opinion....  smile

Hey guys

Of course South America and North America are two separate continents. Aren't we told that there are 7 continents altogether. Thoso would naturaly be Europe, Asia, Oceanina, Africa, South America, North America and Antartica.

And I sure live in europe and we are not thought that North and South America are one continent, I mean they aren't even in geographical means as they are two separate landmasses (separated by the panama canal).

Peace out
