I have a subscription to newsletters from Virginia America (based in my former county San Mateo) and by the end of this year they are confident that they will have expanded into the Atlanta and Houston markets.

The Atlanta market is interesting, anytime an airline plans to expand there its always met with hostility from Delta.

Sorry about that, brings Boston's total to 29 up from 27.

Toronto is impressive, even though it milks the advantage of being directly north of a country with 315M people with over 52 metros above 1M in population (much more than Canada's), the total number of international destinations is still very impressive.

Toronto and NYC are the only two cities in the western hemisphere that service all 6 inhabited continents too. My guess is in the next 5-10 years they will be accompanied by Dallas, Houston, and LA for that distinction. I cannot see Dallas not having a route to Africa for long because it's market greatly demands a connection to either Johannesburg, Cairo, or Lagos. I also think Houston had a route plan for Auckland which was cancelled when United was cutting down its flights, the market will eventually demand it again. LA is a massive gateway airport and it looks like it will surpass ORD in total traffic in the next 5-10 years (Dallas will also), the market to Africa could open its doors to LAX when more demand comes its way.

That's impressive, Dallas jumps to 53, which is a very high number for any North American gateway.

Only two things make me jealous in these city vs city debates, cities with more international destinations/flag carriers and education capitals/collection of top rated schools.

DFW intl airport will likely surpass ORD and ATL in the long haul 10-15 years from now. I'm confident when I say DEN and DFW are the US' two next mega airports. DEN much later down in time IMO.

Dallas-Africa is about 200 passengers a day per direction, Houston-Africa is about 220 per direction per day.

The big difference, however, is that Houston-Africa has a big business component which makes it more First/Business class oriented. Dallas-Africa is mostly VFR (visiting friends and relatives). The former is much more profitable.

For me, the ultimate stat for anything airline/airport related is O&D passenger counts(domestic, international and total) for metro area airports.

That shows where people are actually flying to and from.

You can add one destination from LAX -- Nadi, Fiji. (you have Air Pacific, which serves the route, just not the destination.)

How much does an airline actually profit off of a ticket sale?
