Not even AS' busiest route - that would go to PDX-SEA (albeit most of which is on Q400s) - weekdays have 28x/day.

HA's HNL-OGG is 24-25x/day on 717s; WN does DAL-HOU 20x/day on 737s.

Other big ones for one airline are SFO-EWR on UA (18-19x/day), ATL-MCO on DL (17x/day) and GEG-SEA on AS (17x/day).
