At Bahrain it is Gulf Air with among other services 2 x daily to London Heathrow using A330-200 aircraft. Emirates comes up from Dubai 3 times a day with a mix of 772, 773, 310 and 332. Qatar Airways comes from Doha with 320 twice daily.

Also British Airways offers a daily flight to both Doha and of course London Heathrow. KLM fly daily (or almost daily I think) to Amsterdam, and Cathay fly 5 x per week to Hong Kong.

Unfortunately the airport is not that good for spotting as all this foreign traffic comes in at night!

In BOS, Air Canada (including all Air Nova flts) operates nearly 20 times daily. Services to YYZ, YUL, YOW, YHZ, and I think Québec (what's Québec's city code, is it YQB? Thanks!).

The largest international flying US carrier, it's American/American Eagle/Business Express. American operates to LHR, CDG, and BDA (Bermuda, once again, forgot the city code). American Eagle/Business Express operate to Halifax, Québec, and Ottawa, with Montréal service beginning in Sept. Then Delta, with a flight to Bermuda, and Comair flying to Montréal, and Toronto.

The largest European airline is BA with 3 flts daily. Then Lufhansa with 2.

Here in Montreal(YUL), the international carrier that flies the most frequent here is obviously Air Canada(they have their hub here).

American flies here often, with flights to Miami, Dallas-Fort Worth and Chicago. I think there is flights to lga, jfk and bos with American Eagle.

Continental flies here from Orlando, Newark and Cleveland.

Northwest flies here from DTW and MSP.

Delta flies here from Atlanta and Cincinnati.

US Airways flies here from Pittsburgh and Phily.

The following overseas airlines fly here daily:

Air France (2x daily with 747s)

British Airways

Sabena

KLM

Swissair

Royal Air Moroc.

Sorry Avion, but at ZRH it is of course not LH but Swissair as the most frequently international airline. I dont know how many fligts they have, but from the 480 take offs they have more than 50% and nearly all of them are international.

The most frequent carrier servicing international destinations from LAX is United.
AKL 2x/wk
CDG 1x/day
GUA 1x/day
HKG 5x/wk
LHR 10x/wk
MEL 1x/day
MEX 2x/day
NRT 1x/day
SAL 1x/day
SYD 6x/wk
YVR 1x/day

A lot of foreign carriers also serve LAX. My guess is the largest foreign carrier at LAX is Mexicana.

Hi!

At Mexico City I would think the most frequent international airline is Continental Airlines.

Continental with almost 9x daily departures IAH, 2x daily departures to EWR and one daily departure to SAN.
(737 and MD-80)

¡Hola!

Acá en la Ciudad de México, pienso que la línea aérea internacional más frecuente es Continental.

Continental con casi 9 corridas diarias a Houston, 2 corridas a Newark y una corrida diaria a San Diego.
(Todas con 737 y MD-80)
