Is ORD-CDG the only trans-oceanic route flown by three different US carriers? There are multiple city pairs with two airlines serving the route, but ORD-CDG is the only route I can think of that has three (UA, AA, DL).

LAX-NRT is the only other one I can think of.

Is that trans-oceanic though? In the OP's defination, I would think he means intercontinental flights.

Not "international" and technically not intercontinental but LAX-HNL has UA/AA/DL/HA.

JFK-LHR: AA/BA and DL
EWR-LHR: UA/CO (and BA if you consider it as being "AA")

If you combine JFK and EWR in one destination and call it NYC, then you can say "NYC-LHR" is flown by all three major big US carriers: AA, DL and UA. All three together, if you include BA, that's at least 15 flights a day if not more!

And Virgin, because they codeshare with Virgin America. Going that far makes it all a pretty big stretch. For LAX-SYD, it would technically be United, Delta, American via Qantas, and Virgin America via Virgin Australia. I think using codeshares defeats the purpose!



If I wanted your opinion, I'd give it to you!

What about joint ventures where it is metal neutral?

HNL-NRT (DL,HA,UA)

HA flies to HND, not NRT. For HNL-TYO, yes there are 3 U.S. carriers on the route.
However, if you consider the UA/ANA and AA/JAL trans-pac joint ventures, which are metal neutral, then HNL-HND has HA, UA/ANA, and AA/JAL.

HNL-OSA (DL,HA,UA)

UA nor ANA fly HNL-OSA. But AA/JAL does and with the JV.

I suppose back when UA had a presence at JFK there wold have been overlap on a couple EU routes with AA, UA and DL.
ORD-BRU;ORD-FRA UA and AA for a while, but AA pulled these routes recently.
SEA-NRT DL and UA (At one time AA operated this route, but I am not sure if UA and DL were also doing this at the same time)
SFO-NRT DL and UA

LAX-NRT. UA AA DL

Exactly. It takes away from the original intent and spirit of the thread IMO. We all know what code-shares and JVs mean but for this purpose I thinky your own metal is what satisfies the question. Saying LAX-SYD is AA/DL/UA is a bit much..

LAX-SYD is not flown by AA. The OP refers to routes flown by US carriers.
If you include codeshares, there will be many more routes.

Just to add an additional comment to my last post on this thread: UA was flying JFK-LHR at one time in the 90s so even excluding EWR, and if you exclude codeshares and joint ventures, JFK-LHR qualifies because it has been flown by all three major US carriers, AA, DL and UA although not all at the same time.

If you combine JFK+EWR you should get a few destinations NYC-Europe. Are you talking about city pairs or airports specifically?

That's exactly what I thought of. I thought JFK+EWR combined would make me add more destinations in Europe, BRU being one of them, because AA and DL fly to a lot of places in Europe out of JFK and UA (CO) does the same out of EWR.

So to clarify your point, if you talk about city pairs, such as JFK and EWR combined, then yes you should get more destinations in Europe. But if you talk about airports specifically then as I point out in my last reply, JFK-LHR qualifies because the route has been flown by all three airlines each on their own metal: AA, DL and UA.

I started to talk about city pairs because I had forgotten UA had flown JFK-LHR on its own, but then I realized this would add more destinations in Europe. And I also realized that not talking about city pairs, JFK-LHR would be an example.

Final answer: I ended up talking about both to clarify my examples.

SEA to NRT may get a third again with NH, however most would speculate that UA would drop the route and let NH fly it and reap the Joint Venture benefits.

Never... The only European destination UA ever served from JFK was LHR, which DL did not, and legally couldn't. Before open skies only two US carriers could legally fly JFK-LHR (or to LHR at all).

However, there was definitely an overlap on JFK-CDG between AA, DL, and TW, though it wasn't very long as it took a long time for AA to move to ORY. If you consider CDG/ORY as one airport it continued for quite a long time. I'm not sure if there was any overlap between the three on other routes -- JFK-FRA maybe? There also might have been between AA, NW, and UA on JFK-NRT, I don't remember the exact dates AA started that route and NW and UA ended it but they all must have been within a few years of each other.

As a sidenote, I was trying to think of all the carriers that at one time or another have operated scheduled passenger services between the New York area and London (all airports combined). Those I can think of (have probably missed one or two):

U.S. carriers
Pan Am
American Overseas Airlines (acquired by Pan Am in 1950)
TWA
American
United
Continental
Delta
People Express
Eos Airlines (all-business class 752s JFK-Stansted 2005-2008)
MAXjet (all-business class 762s JFK-Stansted 2005-2007)

British carriers
BOAC
British Airways
British Caledonian
Virgin Atlantic
Laker Airways (Skytrain)
Silverjet (all-business class 762s EWR-Luton 2007-2008)

Foreign carriers (5th freedom)
Air India
El Al
Kuwait Airways
Qantas
Japan Airlines

Any others?

Right, forgot about QF. Also forgot about JAL which operated around-the-world service via HND-HNL-SFO-JFK-LHR with 5th freedom rights U.S.-LHR for a few years in the 1960s/early '70s using DC-8s. Added QF and JL to my llist above.
