so this is for all you pro's out there.
i was reading in another thread that CO has some 24(ish) flights daily between Newark and Houston. i checked out CO's website and only found they have 11, at least thats what i found for July 17th sked's...(varies on B737, B757's, and B767's).
so what airline has the most hub-to-hub flights?
mixture of a/c type?
does NW have any widebody flights between MSP and DTW for repositioning like UA does between their hubs?
Almost everything is on Dash 8s. There are some CRJ-700s and Alaska has operated mainline jets on the route too.
31 nonstop flights between SEA and PDX might surprise some people since the Northwest is often a part of the country that is forgotten about, but SEA-PDX is a huge market as far as frequencies go. It isn't as big of a market as the shuttle routes in the Northeast or in Texas, but one airline dominates and operates more flights on a single route than anywhere else in the country. The flights are pretty much every half hour between 6am and 9pm.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

For the heck of it:
PIT-PHL: 12 dailies on US
PHL-PIT: 10 dailies...
I tried to find information on PHL-CLT but their website/internet is being a piece of shit for me tonight... I would imagine upwards of 12 daily flights between PHL and CLT on A320, 737, 757, and 767 aircraft. I know that at least one aircraft or two between PHL and CLT are a 767...

Quoting Alias1024 (Reply 7): Wow!!! I had no idea it was that many. I would have guessed it was around 12 or so.
Nope, it's opperated so that if someone misses a flight its not a big deal at all and will be on the next one no problem. Shuttle style. Also, they have to compete with Amtrak and cars, so I think the frequency is necessary. Also, they offer free wine/microbrews, leather seats, great FAs etc etc... Great service! Plus, there's a LOT of traffic going between the Puget Sound and Western Oregon everyday. Some people even commute to Seattle everyday from Vancouver,WA and Portland (crazy people!)

Only 10 from PHL to CLT...9 the other direction. I would have guessed more as well.
Interestingly enough, US has more flights LAS-PHX - 14, all HP aircraft.

I fly MSP-DTW (or vice versa) on NW to help me keep my status. Even with 16 or 18 daily flights between MSP and DTW, those flights are always full. Even the times I've flown the route on the 753, there weren't many, if any at all, open seats.
Maybe a lot of segment hogs like me

Not a record but UA operates 17 flights a day between SFO and LAX. They used to have a lot more on the route when they used to have Shuttle by United/United shuttle. There are a lot more flights between the Bay Area and LA if you include the satellite airports.
I would not call Osaka a hub for JL or NH. Though there are many flights between Osaka and Tokyo, there are also tons of flights between all major cities. When you really only have two airlines (there are others but limited service) all cities are focus and hubs. If you put Osaka as a Hub then you have to put CTS, FUK, NGO, and OKA as hubs as well.

A few years ago, NW operated a DC10 between MSP-DTW to repostion aircraft. Now, the only heavy operating between the two cities is a 757(-200 and -300). The equipment varies between MSP and DTW. Anything from a DC9 to a 753.

Northwest also used to fly the D10 between MSP and MEM as well (circa '01 and '02). I flew that several times and the flights were always packed. Now I think they fly anything from a CRJ to a 753 between the two cities.

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned IB's shuttle service between MAD and BCN. I know BCN may not be as big a hub as some of the other places already mentioned, but the number of flights is immense. Add to that flights with JKK and AEA and you get a ridiculous amount of flights!
Except that TPE isn't a hub for CX. That's a lot of widebodys though.
OH! I just remembered, I checked the AS/QX schedules and there are 31 flights scheduled one-way from SEA-PDX today. All of them are on QX Dash 8-200s and one Dash 8-400. They run pretty much every half and hour on the zero and the thirty from 7AM 'til 9PM plus a couple after 9PM and one at 6AM. Each flight is around 50 minutes. That's somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500 seats today, one-way!
: Sorry for the double post! More AS info! Other AS hub flights include; SEA-ANC 20 Daily AS-73G, 734, 739 MD80 SEA-GEG (Spokane,WA) 16 Daily QX-Dash 8-
: Hub to Hub: US PHX-LAS: 15, A320, A319, 733
: Those flights are very full too, and they generally have very high yields. Unrestricted full Y is around $325 round-trip. Mainly catering to business
: actually it does per the NWA website...flight 165 MEM-MSP is a 753; flight 444 MSP-MEM is also a 753
: AA flew as many as 23 flights each way between ORD and DFW, with the vast majority being MD-80s. There may have been a 757 or two, and there was a 777
: That is rather odd. More flights between PIT and PHL and PHL and CLT, US' two largest hubs... PIT-PHL is a hub-2ndary hub/focus city pair...
: Something tells me that a certiain Canyon Blue and Saddle Tan airline has something to do with that.......
: Not exactly a hub-to-hub, but AA ORD-LGA, 19 flights/day.
: There is also alot of O&D traffic on that route as well as Business between the two cities.
: True, that is one of PIT's highest O&D markets besides D.C., NY, and Chicago...
: There are 29 daily flights between DAL-HOU on Southwest.
: WN does not have "hubs" per se, but between two of their largest cities: LAS-PHX x 19
: And what airline might that be? I don't know!!!! Aaaagh! Geee-wiz...
: Agreed. I mean, I'm leaving on a family vacation to upstate NY (Jamestown area) and we're flying SEA-MEM(I believe) and then to BUF and back and I th
: Didn't AA have even more flying between DFW-ORD in the past (around 1990). I recall half-hourly MD-80s from 0600 to 2200. Then maybe one at 2300 & mid
: Virgin Blue has 17 flights a day between Sydney and Brisbane using the B737-700 and the B737-800 even though Sydney is not their hub
