What Route Has The Most Airlines Flying?

Sat Sep 09, 2006 9:05 pm

As I read through one of the post saying about airlines operating flight BKK-HKG, so I start counting and it's a lot. So I come up with the question. What Route has the most carriers flying?

And I will start with

1)BKK-HKG(13,14?): TG, CX, GF, AI??, EK, CI, KQ, ET, OX, 9I, UL, PK, KA, AY
2)BKK-SIN(12): TG, CX, SQ, AY, LX, TK, GA, TR, FD/AK, SK, IC, BG
3)JFK/EWR-LHR/LGW/STN(9): AA, BA, VS, AI, KU, E0, MY, CO, DL/UA (one stop, one start)

Any Idea??

of course this doesn't beat your list but...

LAX-HNL: NW, HA, TZ, DL, CO, AA, UA...and to a lesser extent AQ from SNA

depending on the day of week and season you can have up to 20 flights a day from the Los Angeles area to HNL alone. ranging from B737 - B777 (that is if UA is still using the B777 on high peak seasons)

Umm Yeah I think LAX-HNL is among the top.

Anybody knows about:

1)JFK/LGA/EWR-MIA/FLL
2)GIG-GRU/CGH

NRT-LAX (now just JL,NH,AA,UA,NW,SQ?,KE) used to have many carriers flying in the past but no more

I think BKK-HKG wins!

But wouldn't that cover LHR, LGW, STN and LTN? What about from just one of these airports?

That would cover all 4 - I just used that example as NYCBoi did in his original posting.

Quoting NewYorkCityBoi (Thread starter):
)JFK/EWR-LHR/LGW/STN(9): AA, BA, VS, AI, KU, E0, MY, CO, DL/UA (one stop, one start)

If you're just talking one airport, then Gatwick-Palma would be the most popular of the 4 London airports, with easyJet, Thomsonfly, Mytravel, Thomas Cook, First Choice, Excel, Monarch, British Airways, Astraeus and Spanair.

Another example is Gatwick-Tenerife:

First Choice
Monarch
Excel
Astraeus
Flyjet
Thomsonfly
Mytravel
Spanair
Futura
LTE
British Airways

ATL-ORD/MDW
AirTran
American

Yes. I think in addition to that, they had Thai and Malaysia operating as well. At one point, I think DL was also doing that route.

So at that time: JL, NH, AA, UA, NW, SQ, KE, DL, TG, MH and JL was operating double daily on somedays. So that was a pretty saturated market.

MH doesn't fly NRT-LAX since what, 10 or 15 years ago. MH flies to LAX via TPE. This was being discussed a lot in most recent threads about MH, on why MH gave up its 5th freedom right in NRT over TPE.

I think none of you considered this route  Cool.

from Stuttgart/Germany EDDS/STR - Antalya/Turkey AYT/LTAI

DE (Condor),
HF (Happag Fly),
PT (Pegasus),
INX (Inter Airlines),
HHI (Hamburg International),
SHY (SKY Airlines),
KK (Atlas Jet),
BST (Best Air),
CAI (Corendon),
LT (LTU),
FHY (FreeBird),
XQ (Sun Express)
OHY (Onur Air),
4U (Germanwings),
HLX (Happag Lloyd Express)

Besides Berlin, the Stuttgart area has one of the highest Turkish population in Germany. In addition to that, Antalya is one of the most popular tourist places for Germans. On the route to IST, STR often gets A340s, A310s from TK  Smile

also pretty popular from Stuttgart or any other German airport

STR - Palma de Mallorca PMI/LEPA

AB (Air Berlin),
DE (Condor),
4U (Germanwings),
HF (Happag Fly),
HLX (Happag Lloyd Express),
JKK (Spanair),
NRD (Nordic),
6Q (Slovak Airlines),
LT (LTU),
AEA (Air Europa)
sometimes also IB (Iberia)

According to my knowledge TK now flies to BKK and SIN separately so the BKK-SIN route doesn't exist anymore.

True.. SIN and BKK are now served seperately. BKK is a daily 332 flight and SIN is a 4 times weekly 343 flight...

From airport to airport, the route with the most peak day airlines that report a schedule apparently is CGK/SUB with 9. BOM/DEL, CGK/MES, and GIG/GRU are tied for second all with 8 carriers each, although I think GIG/GRU is a bit of a falsehood since most of those carriers flying GIG/GRU are just tags onto their continuing service (ie IAH-GRU-GIG on CO).

Are your lists restricted to airlines that are allowed to sell a ticket on the mentioned routes? Or are these flown just as "triangles" or as a refuel / disembarking stop?
I mean, I wanna fly BKK-SIN, can AY sell me a ticket? Or KU between LON and NYC. And so forth...
When I doubt... go running!

Yes!.... you can go from BKK to SIN or HKG with "ALL" those airlines (but some airlines stop those route from the list I did)

When I was in BKK the last time and I was about to go to HKG, I went to the travel agent, they sold all those airlines.. with a really good deal!, you could do in the internet as well.. like go to AY website. (but not as cheap). So, AY and KA will stop BKK-HKG, and LX, TK, SK already stop the tag BKK-SIN but just terminate at BKK.

The same thing applies to Atlantic crossing, you can fly JFK-LHR by KU or AI, JFK-MAN by PA, JFK-FRA by SIN, etc....

But!, the tag flight in the US from Any airlines doesnt apply to this!... BR flies TPE-SEA-EWR, you can not buy SEA-EWR. BA flies LHR-ORD-HOU, you cant buy ORD-HOU. CX flies HKG-YVR-JFK, you can buy YVR-JFK becuase YVR is not in the US. I am thinking about driving from here (Seattle) to Vancouver just to get this flight to JFK.. and so I will get asian standard of service to new york.

If you look at Chicago (ORD and MDW) and the greater New York area (LGA, EWR, JFK, ISP, HPN, and SWF), you have AA, UA, CO, DL Connection, WN, FL, and TZ.

The Honolulu to Maui air corridor has more daily seats available than the NYC to Boston air corridor. Only slightly pertinent to OP, but an interesting factoid, nonetheless!
