By city, not airport, I believe it is Miami-New York. 82 daily flights. (Los Angeles to San Francisco has 59; Dallas to Houson also has a ton). By airport, I have always been told it was CGH (Sao Paulo Congonhas) to SDU (Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont), but that is "only" 43 dailies.

If you're talking air corridor, I think it is San Francisco to Los Angeles. I counted out 200 flights between the three San Francisco airports to the four LA airports.
SW had 30 flights from OAK to LAX, UA had nearly that many flights from SFO to LAX. They also flew nearly hourly flights from each of those to the other major airports.
It seems that every flight from the SW terminal in Oakland is going to some airport in LA.
I know they are lot of flights between HNL and OGG as well. I also know that the Osaka to Tokyo route is supposedly has the most pasengers in the world, but they have a lot of wide bodies.

I would guess between the cities of Houston and Dallas
to include DFW, DAL to IAH, HOU.
This is the most travelled route in Texas and one the busiest in the USA
Continental, Southwest, and American all HQD at these airports. SOuthwest runs HOU-DAL almost every half hour, plus a few IAH-DAL. Continental runs IAH to DFW and DAL. AMerican runs DFW to IAH and HOU.

What about the number of flights between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo? Somwhere around 80 flights between the two cities around of which are 36 are TAM A319s flying SDU-CGH and 16 VASP B737-300s flying the same route.
In Europe the busiest citypair is probably MAD-BCN with 73 flights on weekdays, followed by ROM-MIL with approx. 55 flights on weekdays and followed by AMS-LON with "only" 50 flights on weekdays.

If we are talking about city routes, It has to be the LA to San Francisco route. Even with just the two big airports SFO-LAX is about 40.
BTW, What route has the most competitors?
On the same corridor, I can think of 6 different airlines (I probably missing some).

Guys, thanks for all your replies, but i have do admit that when a i asked the route with the most number of flights i ment a route between two airports, such as DFW-IAH or MAD-BCN, not between city's.
Well i've been researching on that, and i found out that between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, SDU-CGH, there are on weekdays nearly 120 flights and vice-versa.
I don't have all the details about number, but i'll look it ut for it and will post here soon.

What's interesting is that if maglev trains capable of 500 km/h becomes economically viable a lot of these busy air routes won't be so busy anymore, since the ability of a maglev train to go downtown to downtown will end up being faster than going out to the departing airport, taking the flight and going from the arriving airport back to town.
Indeed, the success of Eurostar and the TGV route from Paris to Marseille via Lyon has already cut a lot of shorter flight air traffic out of CDG and ORY. In can see the day that SYD-MEL flights will be cut back as the high-speed maglev line between Sydney and Melbourne will allow passengers to travese between these two cities in under 2 hours.
