Ah, fair enough, I misread it to be "London to New York" rather than "London or New York."

Re: Transatlantic routes

Generally the busiest are going to have New York or London at one end. The busiest market that doesn’t is typically Orlando-Manchester. Then we have, in no particular order, Paris/Frankfurt to Los Angeles/Miami/San Fran/Chicago/Boston/Washington. Then the busiest tend to be trunk holiday routes fro...

List of Most "Iconic" Civilian Runway # Pairings: A subjective project

I'm somewhat of a numbers guy, and, as I've flown into a number of cities (no pun intended) around the world, I've found it interesting that each major airport has its own blueprint, both in terms of terminal layout but also in the ways its runways are aligned. Obviously many newer airports are star...
