It's not really by Metro in all cases as the link says but it's still very interesting.

The interactive map and data is very interesting. You can search for more cities at the link below:

I love these types of statistics, thanks so much.

More or less, when we think about cities and their popularity, it's much more than just music, film, and television but also Internet, travel, and industry.

For example, you statistics reinforce things we had an idea of already, like say, New York and Miami are very intertwined. Los Angeles and San Francisco are too, Dallas and Houston, Miami and Atlanta, and so on.

While being an airhub helps, regardless, you'll notice the most known and popular cities make nearly a clean sweep by making an appearance on nearly every list.

This reaffirms my feelings as an Georgian. New York and Georgia are two VERY connected states. New York and Atlanta have a big brother/little brother relationship and there are subtle signs of this relationship in Atlanta. Perhaps it's not noticeable to outsiders but Atlantan's know what I'm speaking of.

^^ NYC is the top OD market in the US - all cities with the exception of Philly here have it as a top destination and the only reason for Philly it is not is that there is like 3 million annual Amtrak riders that take the cheaper 62 mile train from DT to DT

And someone on here said a long while back that Dallas is quickly turning into another Los Angeles. Well, according to this, there has to be something in Dallas that Californians like or at least that's the assumption that can be made based off this.

I think you need to clarify this statement. Because I read it like 3 times and it appears you're saying that all the cities have New York as a top destination and that's not the case. I think I am just misunderstanding what you're stating.

This is very telling, particularly the Philadelphia/Atlanta interaction, but not surprising in any sense.

I think a lot of this has to do with hubs really

Would need to look at the O&D numbers

Delta and whatever value jet ius these days run flughts to thier hubs all day long on Delta

Am sure the number are high for PHL/ATL but would really need to look at non connecting passengers

Probably a ton of NYC to LA is O&D etc.

PHL to Chicag is the same, between United, American, US Air, and Southwest there must be a Philly to Chicago flight every 20-30 minutes from 6AM till like 9PM - while much is destination a lot connects via hibs

Meaning NYC is a top market among nearly all cities. Just looking at NYC to SF for example, less passenger but would bet more O&D non connecting in this case

Though am sure ATL to NYC is large, NYC is about the largest market for nearly any city
