33 Flights, 1 Airline, 1 City Pair

Thu Apr 05, 2001 12:22 am

One of the last threads made me think of asking a more narrow question. Can anyone find a city pair with more flights by one carrier than DAL-HOU by WN. 33 flights a day, starting at 0600, 0615, 0630 then every 1/2 hour until 2130 with an extra flight thrown in at 1715.

The flights are all 737's of course, mostly 300 series.

So did you mean city-pair or airport-pair? If the latter we'll have to decide which airports to include in San Fran and LA and NY etc. But if the former

Air Canada YYZ-YUL easily 33 flights a day and some with anything from A319's to A340's

Usual confusion between airport-pair and city-pair; http://www.oag.com shows about 25 Air Canada flights from YUL to YYZ.

But it also shows 34 Ansett flights from SYD to MEL, along with 31 Qantas. Feel free to check those counts, which are for a Thursday.

Though not even close to 33, UAL Shuttle used to have 17 flights a day LAX-SFO. Not bad for an airport fogged in half the time.

Sorry folks, I should have been more specific. Airport to Airport as opposed to city to city with multiple airports.

SYD-MEL on QF with 34 flights looks to be tops, and they certainly have more capacity than DAL-HOU which is only flown with 737's. Thanks to all.

For the all-time record I'll nominate UA LAX-SFO: 40 737s each way in the Jan 1995 timetable.

KE GMP-PUS, 29 daily mostly by 306 and 333.

More seats than 33 737s.

Yep, if you count seats rather than flights Seoul to Pusan looks heavy.

JaseWGTN's summary above looks good except on SEA-PDX Alaska only has about three nonstops-- the rest are various Horizon types.
