Quoting aircellist (Reply 17): Interesting how on many of the top US-western European or US-Asian city pairs, the US carriers are much less popular, whereas on many US-South American the reverse is true.

None of those stats appear to be O+D. They are the numbers of onboard passengers for nonstop flights.
In the DoT stats, the only Amsterdam city pair is DTW-AMS. That's clearly representative of the multiple nonstops NW/KL ran in the city pair and not local traffic. No way is Detroit-Amsterdam local traffic 664,000 while New York-Amsterdam local traffic is somwhere less than 500,000 because it isn't even big enough to crack the top 50.
Or look at the total Charlotte is credited with...2,341,440, compared with just 159,431 for Raleigh. Raleigh supports, with subsidy but without any hub feed, transatlantic nonstops. And the RDU service area isn't that much smaller than CLT. To suggest that for every 100 Charlotte local O+D international passengers, there are fewer than 7 local O?+D generated by Raleigh/Durham is absolutely implausible.
These numbers don't tell us anything about O+D. They are onboard passengers for nonstop flights.

Don't be forgetting lil old Orlando-Sanford (SFB)!
If you guys are combining the figures together for NYC for JFK and EWR, Im sure the same should apply to MCO and SFB!
Having a guess with all the charter traffic to Orlando, you are probably looking at another 250,000 pax from LGW to SFB and that would probably push the combined Orlando traffic up to close to a Million per annum!
