Yep, I'd add a bunch of the Asian airports as well. BOM, for example, though far from the busiest, has 100+ pax movements during a typical graveyard shift. Add to that a bunch of cargo ops as well.

Don't forget LAS.

America West has its night hub operations to 54 destinations across the country all from approximately 10pm and 1am.

In addition, the countless red-eyes offered by UniTED, US Airways, Continental, AA, Delta, Northwest etc.
