Where the Widebodies Fly  

Wandering Aramean

Looking for flights within the US operated by widebody aircraft? Here’s a relatively easy way to find them.

Just plug in a travel date – the other three fields are optional – and you’ll get back a list of the routes scheduled to fly with a widebody that day.

The underlying data will refresh every week or so, I hope, to stay current.

And, because I can, some random stats about domestic widebody flights:

[*]American Airlines currently has the most scheduled, edging out Delta Air Lines by about 4%. Hawaiian is in third thanks to its massive long-haul operations from the islands.
[*]Based on the same reasoning above, HNL has the most domestic widebody departures followed by LAX, MIA, SFO and DFW. JFK doesn’t make the top 5 (largely because AA now has the A321T with Flagship Service on those transcons)
[*]Snowbirds, Spring Breakers and Spring Training fans in Detroit and Minneapolis get 767 service to Ft. Myers this spring; I would have bet against that if given the opportunity.
[*]Frequencies vary notably by day of week and by season:
