I'm working a a school project about airline deregulation and I need help for some a.net members. I want to compare the number of airlines on a route (BOS-LAX) over the last few years before deregulation and after to compare how much competition on the route went up. does anyone know where I can find that type of information (it can be any route)

I can't help you with a source, but the NYC-LON routes have a LOT of history or regulation with the Bermuda agreements and the recent cancellation of such limitations. You may want to look at the entire history from before Bermuda I to now and then to the future, since now many airliners are adding or reducing service to LON.

You're asking about domestic US?
You're asking about airlines that fly the route nonstop, or direct, or are you including airlines that only serve the route via connections?
You might hope that old schedule books (OAGs) were on line somewhere, but AFAIK they're not. Various airline schedules are, but no place to look up what airlines were flying a given route in 1975 or whenever. But if you ask about a given route in a given year we can probably tell you which airlines flew nonstop or direct.
