Which of your flights from A to B (on a scheduled commercial flight that is (or was) bookable by all) is so uncommon that you expect no other Flyertalker has ever flown this route?

I'll start: RTM to CFN: Rotterdam to Donegal which was a weekly scheduled route on VLM Airlines (merged with Cityjet in 2010) during the summer of 2008 operated on Fokker 50s.

MSV (Sullivan County International Airport, Liberty/Monticello, NY) - JFK, on Catskill Holiday Airlines, Summer of 1978.

MSV no longer has any scheduled service. Despite never having had on-site customs/immigration facilities, MSV got its "International" moniker when its first scheduled carrier, Mohawk, operated NYC (either LGA or JFK, I forget which) - MSV - YYZ, and reverse.

VER-MEX
VER-IAH
Haneda to Hachijojima
Sendai to Sapporo

of those, I imagine VER-IAH would be the most likely

LEA (Exmouth/Learmonth) - XCH (Christmas Island) - CCK (Cocos Island) and vv - certainly the most unique routing I've done.

Which airline used to fly LEA-XCH??

I worked on a mine site in Western Australia called Telfer (TEF) and whilst that's a charter flight it did connect through to Broome (BME) and was bookable at the time with Skywest Airlines (XR) as a commercial flight from PER-BME with one stop on a Fokker 100.

So I've done PER-TEF-BME before

Vancouver - Tofino on Orca Airline

BRR-BEB - but we did it as a do so there were a fair few FTers on that flight... however, outside that one, given there is a direct GLA-BEB service?

SNA-LAX and ONT-LAX were flown by United (Express) until a few years ago.

Really liked those flights when I had business in OC or Inland Empire, plus it made intra-California United segment running so much easier than now.

While I'm sure others have probably flown it, my personal favorite was SLC-SJC-OAK where there were about five of us left on the SJC-OAK segment and the FA moved everyone to the front.

Does it count if one flew one's own C150 between two airports -- CNM and HOB -- that did have scheduled service at the time on Great Lakes?

Malang to Bandung and Malang to Jakarta back in the 80's when Malang still had commercial airline flights on Bouraq, Merpati and Garuda.

Lourenço Marques (Maputo) to Durban, and also Johannesburg to Lourenço Marques (Maputo), the only time I have seen tracer fire on final approach.

DPS-DPS? If you like Bali, you might not complain...

LHW (Lanzhou) - URC (Ürümqi) with Shandong Airlines (SC)?

BTJ-PEN

These have less of a chance: SOP-CLT, BWN-BKI

I did BDR (Sikorsky Memorial Airport, Bridgeport, CT) to TSS (34th Street Heliport) to JFK when US Helicopter still existed. I reckon it counts since it was airport to airport, they had an IATA code, and it was bookable by anyone.
