>I know that STR
has about 600,000 inhabitants. I consider that "small" in comparison to most cities in Europe that have transatlantic service. I think with a few exceptions most have at least one million (exceptions VCE
). And since Lyon was mentioned, I would like to add that Lyon is bigger (about 1 M inhabs) than STR
. I am aware that STR
is the home of great cars, but as Detroit shows, you can be the home of crap-on-wheels and still be a big city.<
Lyon, according to official population numbers, has just under 500,000 people. Also, Stuttgart has the cachement area of Karlsruhe, Strasbourg, Baden-Baden, Ingolstadt, Freiburg (BSL
has no trans-atlantic service) and several other places. We are talking about probably 2 million at least. Definately bigger than Atlanta or Detroit (which has less than 1,000,000 people as a city). Then again, it is only 2 hours from Frankfurt.
>Apia is in Samoa (formerly Western Samoa), a totally separate territory to American Samoa whose capital is Pagopago.
Twice you've pointed that out now.<
Well, you caught me on Apia, but the first time they were talking about Pago Pago, which is in American Samoa
