Come Fly With Me!

Posted in Information Visualization by kmtom on October 29, 2010

Although I don’t do too much travel, and of late I’ve been quite loyal to JetBlue, I thought this infographic “Converging Flight Paths” from the NYTimes was pretty cool. Shows you where airlines have gone and how we’ve ended up with the airlines we’ve got. I’m also really surprised at how small JetBlue is, but Boston is one of their biggest hubs and I don’t believe they do a lot of international flights, so.

    I was also surprised by how small JetBlue is… the infographic is only for domestic flights, so that doesn’t explain the low percentage. The big hubs are on the east coast though (BOS, JFK, FLL, MCO). Note that they don’t even fly to the busiest airport in the US (ATL).

    I also didn’t realize Southwest was the biggest. I would have guessed Delta or American!

    Thanks for sharing.
