It is a tossup between JFK and DFW I believe. Not sure of the ranking however.

It depends what you consider international. I would think MIA would be up there with many flights to Latin/South American and the Caribbean Islands. If you are talking transatlantic i would think it would be JFK but i am not sure.

Miami I'd say by far. I sat at the hotel near the airport and watched AA flights headed south all day. Thats my vote. -ASSFO

With the scads of operations out of SJU to the Carribean, I think it would rank a bit higher, plus JFK has alot of flights to the Carribean as well. I think these 2 and MIA might outrank ORD and DFW but I'm not positive.

It has to be MIA. While AA has maybe 3-5 flights across the Atlantic, they have many more to small countries in South America.

Interesting responses... I don't think it's fair to compare hubs per global international service -- for example, AA can fly dozens of flights between Miami and Freeport, Nassau -- but you can't compare that to a flight to LHR. Also, much of AA's Carribean network features weekend-only service from some cities. But here's the other major international focus cities for those wondering:

Dallas/Fort Worth

JFK-ZRH is on the above list. I did, however, forget to include DFW-ZRH (B763).

MIA handles the most internationals by far,. Sure, only four flights a day to Europe (three during the summer), but that does not change the fact that in gross numbers, it has the most international AA passengers. Flights to deep South America are just as long and lengthy as those to Europe, and they are plenty. Twice a day to EZE (one goes on to MVD) and GRU (one goes on to ASU), 12x a week to GIG, and daily to SCL, VVI, and LPB. And both EZE flights are 777s (no more 763s), and one GRU flight is a 777.

On a side note, all those SJU-BOS/TPA/FLL, etc flights are all domestic.

As well, Asuncion, Montevideo, and Belo Horizonte are all served by AA, but via other points.

I would say Miami or Dallas/Ft. Worth, and not JFK. Miami is American's largest gateway to South America, the Caribbean, and Central America, as well as a few flights to Europe. From DFW, American has many flights into Central Am.

Also when I was looking at fares to ZRH one of the options was ORD-ZRH. On AA.

Not even three daily. A daily to San Jose, a daily to Guatemala City, and five times a week to Belize City.

The answer is Miami. Half of MIA's traffic is international.

Also when I was looking at fares to ZRH one of the options was ORD-ZRH. On AA.

This route was discontinued in September 2001 (not as a result as 9.11; it was canceled before).

Depending how recently you looked up at ORD-ZRH flight, it could have been a Swiss codeshare.
