It is not ATA. At least not if your talking scheduled. My guess, based solely on all thier point-to-point routes, is AMR Corporation (American Airlines, American Eagle, American Connection). If not AA, then DL.

I'm making an educated guess here, altho I have no numbers to back me up. It seems to me that British Airways flies to the most international cities, while United Airlines may have the most domestic cities served in the USA. I believe UA is the only carrier flying to all 50 states in the union. Again, just an theory on my part. Regards.

I forget the year, I think 98 or 99 ATA did fly to over 400 destinations world wide. That was when ATA had a larger charter opperation and most of them were just a one time deal. On a scheduled bases I would think UA, AA, DL, BA or LH would all be at the top.

I've seen those Continental ads, I've also read Continental flies to the most International Destinations of any US airline, (remember they fly to many, many Mexican Cities, and that counts) Don't know if CO Micronesia counts or not.

No airline flies to all 50 states as Delaware is the only state without scheduled air service. Besides, when United pulled out of Jackson, that ended Mississippi service.
My question, are we defining strictly by airline or by airline and its affliates (ie AA or AA and AE and AC, UA or UA and UA Express, DL or DL Connection, DL Shuttle, DL Express) also, how about destinations by codeshare?

AA's December 15th timetable shows about 159 AA/TWA destinations. So AA still seeems to have clinched it--in the US at least.
Delta's Sept 1st showed about 160 to 165 destinations, but I haven't seen there latest timetable.
What about American Eagle or Delta Connection? Isn't American Eagle considered its own airline since all of the seperate airlines merged into one. Someone want to do the tally on some of the regional carriers?
