One hundred thousand! (100,588 as I type this, to be quite precise.) That’s how many flights have now been entered into OpenFlights. Let’s see how the current statistics compare to what we had at 50,000 just a few short months back, shall we?
Top 10 Airlines
|Airline||50k rank||World rank|
|3||Continental Airlines||4 (+1)||4|
|4||American Airlines||3 (-1)||1|
|5||Delta Air Lines||5||2|
|6||British Airways||7 (+1)||9|
|7||Northwest Airlines||8 (+1)||7|
|8||US Airways||6 (-2)||?|
|10||Air France||13 (+3)||5|
Not a huge difference to last time, with United and Lufthansa still duking it out for the top spot. Air France clambers onto the list, so 8 of the world’s top 10 are now represented, with only #8 Southwest (#19 of OF) and #10 Singapore (#13 on OF) still missing the cut.
Top 10 Airports
|Airport||50k rank||World rank|
|1||Frankfurt Main (FRA)||2 (+1)||9|
|2||London-Heathrow (LHR)||3 (+1)||2|
|3||Chicago Ohare Intl (ORD)||1 (-2)||3|
|4||Houston-George Bush Intcntl (IAH)||5 (+1)||16|
|5||Munchen (MUC)||4 (-1)||27|
|6||Los Angeles Intl (LAX)||8 (+2)||6|
|9||New York-John F Kennedy Intl (JFK)||6 (-3)||13|
|10||San Francisco Intl (SFO)||10||19|
Frankfurt and London-Heathrow push Chicago out of the top spot. World #1 Atlanta enters the list at #5, but despite Air France’s success in the airline category, world #5 Paris-CDG slips off the list to #12 and is replaced by Amsterdam. Still no sign of world #4 Tokyo-Haneda.
Now in development are a few features that will start to leverage on this mass of data. Up first, the ability to check what airlines fly to a given airport and what routes they operate on. Stay tuned!
Forward to the future,

I am sure that HND will “take off” when there’s a Japanese localization….

Are the people who develop these statistics on drugs, or have they just never travelled further than the USA.
Where is Singapore Airlines, been voted best for years, as well as Cathay and Virgin. American Airlines – 1….have you ever travelled on other airlines.
What about airports, have you ever been to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Singapore or Dubai….they are fantastic
London Heathrow, apart from terminal 5, it is the tirediest airport in the world….

The statistics above are simple counts of how many times those airlines and airports are found in the database, not evaluations of how good they are.
