A while back I started compiling collections of long-haul routes flown by carriers in the different alliances. The main goal was to make it a bit easier to handle award search planning as those long-haul routes are often the hardest to figure out. I took a bit of a break – far too long, really, but I’m back now with another installment: Star Alliance trans-Pacific flights. There are only 72 that I came up with in my first pass (I’m planning ahead for United’s announced 2014 changes in this list) though I’m sure someone will find something I missed and let me know.
Interesting, of the 72 route/airline pairs there is ~20% overlap; only 58 of the actual routes are unique. And, with three carriers (UA, OZ, SQ) offering service the SFO-ICN route and LAX-NRT (SQ, UA, NH) tie for being flown by the most different airlines. Narita has the most different destinations served with 13; SFO is second with 10.
