Klwright69: CO Micronesia do not serve Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, etc..coz...take a look at a map and see where these places are situated. US tourism to these places is very limited, there are next to no business ties between these countries and the US. Most of the flights out of these islands go to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
Delta15: Regarding ZRH-BSL only being 50 miles....look at LAX-BUR 38 miles and plenty of flights on United Express (road traffic must be hell huh?)
Woodsboy: SCL-PPT is still being operated these days. In fact, 20 years ago, LA used to operate this route to connect with QF flights from PPT to SYD....something the two airlines have cemented these days with a codeshare agreement.
Can't remember who mentioned it now: Hapag Lloyd 737 in Australia....was part of a world wide charter flight...we do actually also get Condor and AeroLloyd charters down this way too...so it is not all that unusual at all.
O.K.....weirdest routes of all time....here goes...
And this is only the routes that they operate now...some years ago, Air Nauru had the largest Pacific route network of all the airlines, they used to fly to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, Samoa, PNG, Honiara and some of the other Polynesian islands, and all of these flights were operated with 727s or 737-200s (flights these days are operated by 737-400s)
They used to be the only airline that operated into Niue (absolutely beautiful island) but these flights are no longer either (damn it!!)
Nauru is only 8 square miles in size and only has 10,000 people....and it national airline has a route network which sort of makes CO Micronesia pale in comparison (in terms of unusual routes).
