I was trying to locate some information regarding AA international ops and wondering what is their largest destination outside the US, including the daily/weekly total of all flights originating in US?
By flight frequency/daily arrivals and departures and seat volume? I am not focused on yeild or perfromance but rather volume.
So, as others have already said, Toronto is definitely the winner on frequency but Heathrow blows just about every other foreign station away in terms of capacity -- afterall, the average number of seats per flight at Heathrow is almost three times that of Toronto!

While AA's presence at YYZ is impressive (in terms of frequency), AA has actually been stagnant at YYZ since the early 80's in terms of growth. The current schedule is 15 mainline (738/M80) + AE. In 1981, AA had 14 daily YYZ (6 D10/8 722) so seat capacity has dropped despite the boom in air travel.
AA incidently is the longest serving carrier to YYZ on a continuing basis. Uninterupted flights and skeds since 1939. Longer than TCA/AC.
Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
