Yeah that's probably a bigger reason. Europe is a bit far from the US so there are not that many direct flights. A lot of people going through Frankfurt are probably just in transit to somewhere else.

You are probably right. I flew in to Germany in high school on a trip to France (which I thought was weird). I don't remember which airport I flew into, but I know it wasn't Berlin.

Europe's not that far - you get direct flights from New York to Beijing and Tokyo.

Could also be historical. Since Berlin was split east/west and was deep in east Germany, it probably wasn't an ideal place for an air hub post WWII, making other Germany cities in the west get the investment and infrastructure instead.

Lufthansa was banned to fly to West Berlin. Flights was reserved for British European Airways, Air France and PanAm (Pan American World Airways).

Great quiz! Looking at the stats, it looks like these numbers are for passenger numbers from the States to the named cities PLUS passengers from those cities into the US - ie total travel in both directions.

Hard one. I was not even aware of the existence of San Jose del Cabo and Punta Cana, and barely of that of Montego Bay. I didn't think of San Jose (Costa Rica I guess ?) and Panama City as possible answers and discarded Munich... It is indeed surprising that it scores higher than Berlin. Frankfurt is logically ahead of them, it really has a big airport ;).

Though there are close to 15 million Mexicans living in the USA, most of them don't have the means to fly regularly. A large percentage of those flying from the US to Mexico are well-to-do Americans going there for vacation, and Mexico City isn't known as a vacation destination.

Guessed Kingston, didn't think of Montego Bay. Not really knowledgeable about that. Also, I guessed a bunch of German cities but not the two correct ones--Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Cologne--my mind went blank. Got Nassau though.

Singapore Airlines is too expensive for most people. Way cheaper to fly the Japanese airlines or Air China and connect in Tokyo / Shanghai or Beijing when going to Asia.

That is probably true coming from Canada (or the US) but I've found good deals with Singapore on flights originating from other areas like the Middle East. Sometimes it's slightly more expensive that airlines like Qatar but I feel it's worth it since it's a good airline and they've got hands down the best airport in the world.
