I was wondering if anyone knows which single international route (NON-STOP) is serviced by the largest number of carriers. In other words, which route can you fly non-stop where you have the greatest number of airlines to choose from? I think that LAX-NRT has to be one of such routes as it is serviced non-stop by 10 different carriers:
1. DL Delta (daily)
2. JL JAL (12 flights/week)
3. KE Korean Air (daily)
4. MH Malaysia Air (3 flights/week)
5. NH ANA (daily)
6. NW Northwest (daily)
7. RG Varig (4 flights/week)
8. SQ Singapore (daily)
9. TG Thai Airways International (4 flights/week)
10. UA United (Daily)
Can anyone think of another route where there is such a large number of carriers to choose from? I think that BKK-HKG is up there (I counted about 9 carriers: Thai, Cathay, Sri Lankan, Egypt Air, Japan Asia, China Air, PIA, Emirates, and Gulf Air). Are there any other such markets that are not dominated by any one or two carriers?

Godbless, AA doesn't serve FRA-JFK anymore.They suspended the route about a year ago.
I'm also not 100% sure if KU still flies there.
Air India used to fly there but also already pulled out a while back.

Miami-Carcas is done by American, United, Servivensa, Avensa, and Aeropostal for a total of I think 10 dailies. Miami-Sao Paulo is handled by American, Varig, TAM, TransBrasil, and United for what I think is seven (soon eight when TAM goes double daily in August) dailies. Miami-San Jose (CR) is also done by five airlines - American, Iberia, LACSA, LTU, and Martinair. LTU, Iberia, and Martinair all have fifth-freedom rights on the routes.
