Previous Question: Thinest Transatlantic Flight

Mon Dec 04, 2000 5:37 am

Hello,

There was a post here a little while ago titled "Thinnest Transatlantic Route" (http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/319259/) it stated that the Bangor-Helsinki route was the thinnest, but there is an Air Canada Flight 860 from Halifax to London(LHR) and that is operated by a 767 and its a total of 2307 miles shorter than the bgr-hel route.

Thinest usually means least amount of pax per unit time.

Oh really, I took it "thin" as meaning shortest, i guess I was wrong, thanks for the correction...

I guess Continentals EWR- GLA 757 service is a bit on the thin side, but with good load factors.

Air Canada's St. John's-London route is even shorter than the Halifax run.

Thin refers to low traffic volumes and also city pairs that do not have high-traffic, such as CLE-LGW or
perhaps FCO-SIN, JFK-VCE, EWR-GLA, and so forth.

I am going to reiterate what was said earlier. Bangor-Helsinki is thinner than any of those CO routes. Yes they are both on 752s, but COs flights are daily, whilst the BGR-HEL route is weekly or twice a week (can't remember which one) AND it is the stopover enroute to PBI. My guess is there is less than two dozen people or so per week on that route not including the PBI passengers.

Canada 3000 is considering a summer route from Halifax - LGW using the A319. Now that is a thin route for you!
