Awesome tool! Thanks for all your efforts.

Please add China Eastern (MU) as part of the SkyTeam alliance (as of June 18, 2011).

Thanks again.

Hi cockpitvisit,

Your 'Airline Route Mapper' is da bomb! Let me throw out a small enhancement request that I think would go a long way to making the app even easier to use.

I'm pretty good at geography but when it comes to smaller airports in many parts of the world, it isn't always clear to me what country the airport is in. Obviously adding borders to the map would be nice but may not be trivial depending on where and how your map is stored in the map. However, right now you already include the name of the city where the airport is located in the tool tip. It would be awesome if you could also include the country. So:
BSG
Bata
would become
BSG
Bata, Equatorial Guinea

Once source of geographical locations could be wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...y_IATA_code:_B

It would be a nice-to-have feature to know how many flights/routes a city does have. Therefore they could be ranked (by someone else)

Added to the to do list.

You can just load routes.dat into Excel (it is a tab-separated text file) and use pivot tables to get such statistics.

Exclamation Missing Service: 5 Sept 11 Update

I am now spoiled with using this tool for my travel planning and thank you very much for providing it to us!!

In this update, the following route is missing:BW: MCO-KIN-POS

I'm also not clear if you have correct/updated South American routes for
O6 Avianca Brasil (formerly Oceanair Linhas Areas)

This new Avianca-TACA merger is confusing as they will be future members of Star Alliance, yet only offer a single service from their (AV) hub in Bogata to GRU Sao Paulo, when O6 could offer amazing service to North Brasil (BEL, SLZ, FOR, REC, SSA) from the AV Bogata hub from N. America (rather than connecting thru GRU like all OTHER airline routes from N.A.).

As far as I know, AF has a 380 in service from CDG to YUL. The airplane is not included in the statistics. Is this normal or some kind of error?

On which date?

Flightstats doesn't show it when I display flights CDG-YUL.

First, thanks for this terrific tool!

Having a minor issue, i can no longer see the "map", all i see are dots with airport names on a white background. It showed up before, now it's gone. This obviously makes locating airports very difficult. Please help, thanks!

SOLVED: just had to resize the window to get it back!
