I believe there are websites (both privately run and on the DOT site) that publish data such as passengers daily each way (PDEW) for domestic routes. Can anyone provide a link to such a site? Thank you.

Here's where you will find the "Official" DOT traffic figures:

(Table 6 is the one I generally use for reference.) Enjoy!

Anyone have a link for international flights? I'd like to see how big each market is from BOS.

International O&D data is only reported by U.S. Flag carriers, foreign carriers don't report it so you only get part of the picture. In order the estimate the missing traffic you need to have a very good understanding of the data.

As for viewing it, it's restricted by the DOT for viewing by U.S. citizens only and it is not readily available over the internet. You need to sign several forms and then either subscribe to a data provider or work directly with the DOT to get it.

If you do find a website that does have it the data will probably be very old or improperly calculated.

I wonder why that is? Some numbers (not the precise numbers but close approximation) are given to the public all the time. For instance, I read an article where someone at Massport said only about 50 people fly BOS-BRU/MAN each day and elsewhere that 60,000 pax fly BOS-China each year.

It is probably on the internet. WikiLeaks anyone?  

Seriously, though, if it's just for civilian interest, why all the legal red tape?

It's more about not providing foreign carriers with detailed information about passengers flying on the U.S. carriers they would be competing against, basically if a U.S. carrier is making money on an int'l market why let a competing foreign carrier know about it. The O&D data set provides far more detail than just a generalization

The data set provides detailed fare information and passenger routing by O&D. So for example you can see how many people flew LHR-JFK on Delta and what they paid and you can also see how many passengers flew LHR-JFK-BUF or LHR-JFK-DCA as two examples and what those passengers paid as well. If a foreign carrier saw this detailed connecting data they could in effect plot out demand more effectively when planning their schedules around those published by their codeshare partners that they do not have antitrust immunity with.
