IST has come down because of terrorist attacks and Turkey's internal issues. It was above FRA till 2015.

The growth rate for European Airports is quite low.

Completely forgot about that. I'm assuming CDG has suffered from the same effects due to terrorism?

Worst-Timed Commerical Flights

While reading the thread about CRJ/ERJ redeyes, it lead me to the question: What are the most poorly timed commerical flights in the system? (e.g. 0200 departure, 0415 arrival or something like that.
I thought I'd be interesting to see what people can find.

FAT, MFR, and MCI? Maybe.
ALW is way too small of a market. QX has 3x daily and that I'm sure is enough. Plus, it's only a 45 minute drive from PSC, which has plenty of service.
RDM as well. Plenty of flights to SEA and PDX, as well as DEN and SLC.

I agree! As a PSC regular, It's always weird to see UA and DL, and never AA. To me, PSC-LAX on an AA E175 seems more likely than PHX-PSC, which would compete with G4 in an already thin market.
