Yes ANC is heavier in the summer. SEA-ANC: 19 in summer, 12 in winter. I heard B6 is starting a flight from LGB to ANC. I'm sure that will do awesome!!!

FAI is like this right now:

73Q: 3
734: 2
73H: 5
739: 1

You are correct that ANC is larger in the summer than winter, as for FAI,


FAI winter schedules are typically

ANC: 7x
SEA: 2x
BRW: 1x
SCC: 1x
-----------
11x daily

(as recently as 4-ish years ago, FAI-SEA was only 1x, the redeye, but has since gone 2x. Conversly, FAI-ANC was historically 8x daily but recently been reduced to 7x ~1-2 years ago)

In the summer season the schedule expands to:

ANC: 7x (perhaps 8x)
SEA: 4x (I think last summer was 5x)
BRW: 1x
SCC: 1x
------------
13x-15x daily

I am basing these on the current schedules provided at www.alaskaair.com. Im not sure when summer skeds are typically loaded by schedule planners into the GDS. I am also a graduate of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, having been an undergraduate student for 5 years ending 2009 and have regularly used FAI for my travels.

This is varying by the day right now. I took at look at this Wednesday, and GEG has...

DH4: 17
734: 2
739: 1
One of those 737 flights seems to go away mid-Feb then come back in Spring...probably the reason for the discrepancy. Regardless, still 20 total departures.

I have a feeling the reason why its changing from time to time is because of the winter reduction to Alaska from SEA and it is much cheaper to park a 737 of any variant at GEG than it is at SEA.

And I guess SAN is also in the neighborhood then, presently with 13 departures, and that's all mainline! (And only 1 flight is not daily.)

One thing that's revealing, although those who fly these cities know all too well, is how some have shifted so heavily towards QX vs. AS, particularly PDX and SJC. Would be interesting to see Oakland, too. And LAX has a lot, considering some are longer routes or even international to Mexico.

Sigh... to think there once was a day where that number neared 50.

However, with traffic levels starting to pick back up a little bit (and a local economy doing a bit better than it was a year ago), I do think we might see this number rise a little bit. Judging by how often BOI-SEA is full at 6-7 flights a day (and it's a route I used to fly multiple times a week until last month), it wouldn't surprise me to see it go to 8 again over this coming summer. It'd also really make me happy to see BOI-PDX go back to 5 a day.

Cheers!

Where are you getting this numbers if I may ask? Are you counting yourself via AS website or OAG or another source, or is it just printed somewhere that is easy to look up so that we may compare other airlines and hubs. Thanks for the info.....

The easiest way is to use the downloadable AS timetable from their website and manually count all the flights for each airport taking into account discontinuation and resumption dates.

Thanks for the information, I was just thinking that with all that information there may have been an easier and less time consuming way.

I always forget how many AS flights we have until I'm down there taking pictures, it's usually the one that breaks up all the WN planes. And with that new SAN-OGG flight I'll be earning some DL miles next summer

Yeah that's how I did it, and typed them onto excel and counted them manually. Took about an hour and a half for AS. AS has a lot of daily flights but different equipment. I think I looked at LAX-PVR, flip-flops a lot from a 734 to 739 and back.

Sad on many fronts. SFO in 2007, we had 30 daily flights. Also, '06-'07 LAX was approaching 60 daily flights and not nearly as many Q's. I believe it was 8 daily.

There are still 8-10 remaining (I haven't been keeping track), they are being replaced with DH4's as soon as possible. All special liveries from the CR7s have been transferred to the DH4's and the operations are winding down. Remaining legs of the CR7 are:

PDX-ONT
PDX-BUR
SEA-LGB (frequency scheduled to be increased)
SEA-SBA
PDX-SFO
PDX/SEA-OAK
PDX-SMF
PDX/SEA- FAT (ends soon as more leave the fleet)

With those posting on AS's largest hub cities, I was thinking about what's the "smallest" city in AS's route network (meaning smallest in service, not necessarily population). In other words, the exact opposite of their biggest hubs.

First I was thinking maybe LTO or LAP, or maybe WRG or PSG.

The more I think about it, I'd have to say:

ZLO

LAP for sure, 5x weekly DH4 is probably the smallest service.
