    Wasn't it expertflyer or another site that listed all of the routings? I'm looking for all of the *A flights to pdx for an upcoming trip (not mr). I don't think direct is the way to go so want to see where else I can go through via ita?

    And apologizes up front if I need to do more research or just play with ita more. Tell me to stfa and it will be done. I didn't see anything here initially and didn't have time to look through ft this morning. TIA

    Welcome to MP.

    Many airports post flight schedules on their websites. If you know what *A carriers serve PDX, it should be easy to identify the nonstop destinations this way. Your choices are probably CO. UA, and US plus whatever *A foreign carriers serve PDX, probably AC, possibly LH, NZ, or ANA but I doubt it.

    If you have a recent copy of the airplane magazine from a *A carrier, it probably has route maps in the back, but these can be hard to read and might show only codeshare flights.

    The PDX website lists all nonstop flights. We have a pretty small airport, so it's a short list. From there you could work backwards through carrier hubs.

    That's easy, because there's only one: AC to/from YVR, YYC (seasonal) and YYZ.

    Exactly. That's why I suggested starting with the airport website. No FF wants a "direct" flight because you usually lose miles and upgrades, only nonstops and then connect from there.

    That's easy, because there's only one: AC to/from YVR, YYC (seasonal) and YYZ.[/quote]

    That's what I suggested but I wanted to give PDX the benefit of the double because I know DL has nonstops every day to NRT and probably AMS and/or CDG too.

    If you're wishing for only *A and *A routings, try the Star Alliance flight search and you can find the quickest *A routings from PDX to you're destination.
