Airline route maps

Is there an App or a website that would display airline route maps? It would be very helpful to see which airlines can transport an individual from the west coast of USA to Europe nonstop. Or from the west coast to SE Asia most directly. Is there a sight that can look at all the airlines and show a route map that would help narrow down a decision as to how to get across the Atlantic to anywhere in Europe without stopping on the east coast of the States?

The explore function on Kayak should do this - enter your departure airport, tick the non stop box and you get results for worldwide which you can filter by region.

A site like Kayak, or the Kayak phone map, is the best option. I don't think it would be practical to display every airline that flies from anywhere in the West Coast to anywhere in Europe. Those starting and ending points are so broad, probably every major US and European airline has at least one flight that meets that definition.

Same thing from the West Coast to Southeast Asia. Depending on how wide an area you mean by Southeast Asia, probably almost every major US and Asian airline fly from somewhere on the West Coast to somewhere in Southeast Asia. The best bet would be to run some searches with specific starting and ending points on Kayak to see who offers direct flights.

Probably too cumbersome to do it airline by airline. Rather go to this handy OAG site: oag.com/Travel-Tools/…

On Skyscanner there is a map. It is a little difficult to see as it's not imediately obvious but if you enter say SFO to AMS it will show you in green all the direct flights to other airports in the world from SFO.

Have to say it is not always 100% correct as when you actually try to book often there are conecting flights but it is an indication and it is not too cumbersoe to use.

Wayne, You won't see it on a map but you can use any airline search site like Kayak.com or

matrix.itasoftware.com to see non stop flights from several airports near your home.

I can tell you that from SAN the only non stop is on British Airways to London.

There are others from LAX to Europe non stop and from LAX to points in Asia.

Kayak would be more useful if the nearby airport option could be expanded to, for example, airports in a 500 mile radius for these longer itineraries, and then be toggled simultaneous with non-stop options only.

Sometimes, to look for flights, I'll take a peak at flightstats and zero-in on a specific airport and sift through its arrivals/departures to see what's coming/going where with which carrier. It gets tricky when service is not daily.

It's becoming very important for China since the China-interior connections have become a mess--avoid connections at all costs.
