# Calculate Passengers on each Destination

• ### Question

• Hello Experts,

I am trying to calculate the number of passengers traveled to each destination. Here is some sample code, if that helps.

DDL:

```CREATE TABLE #PAX
(
SEG INT,
DEP VARCHAR(3),
ARR VARCHAR(3),
First_Class INT,
Economy INT
)```
DML:
```INSERT INTO #PAX(SEG, DEP, ARR, First_Class, Economy)
SELECT 1, 'STL', 'JFK', 11, 166
UNION ALL
SELECT 2, 'STL', 'DXB', 13, 21
UNION ALL
SELECT 3, 'JFK', 'DXB', 11, 150
;```

Apparently, I would like to know how many passengers have flown to JFK and DXB.

Expected Result:

```SELECT 'STL', 'JFK', 24, 187
UNION ALL
SELECT 'JFK', 'DXB', 24, 171```

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks!

• Hi Bangaaram，

```--drop table #PAX
--go
CREATE TABLE #PAX
(
SEG INT,
DEP VARCHAR(3),
ARR VARCHAR(3),
First_Class INT,
Economy INT
)
INSERT INTO #PAX(SEG, DEP, ARR, First_Class, Economy)
SELECT 1, 'STL', 'JFK', 11, 166
UNION ALL
SELECT 2, 'STL', 'DXB', 13, 21
UNION ALL
SELECT 3, 'JFK', 'DXB', 11, 150

;with cte as (
select SEG, DEP, ARR,
sum (First_Class)over(partition by DEP)  First_Class1,
sum (Economy)over(partition by DEP)  Economy1,
sum (First_Class)over(partition by ARR)  First_Class2,
sum (Economy)over(partition by ARR)  Economy2
from #PAX
)
select DEP,max(ARR) ARR ,
case when max(First_Class1)>max(First_Class2) then max(First_Class1) else max(First_Class2) end   First_Class,
case when max(Economy1)>max(Economy2) then max(Economy1) else max(Economy2) end   Economy
from cte
group by DEP
/*
DEP  ARR  First_Class Economy
---- ---- ----------- -----------
JFK  DXB  24          171
STL  JFK  24          187
*/```

It's not just helpful; it's vital. You posted garbage. First of all, by definition, a table must have a key, but what you posted. Can never have a key. Because none of the columns are not null. You seem to be an old basic or Fortran programmer because you use insanely short column names and use an uppercase (the only reason for using uppercase all the time today is that you're still on the keypunch machine from the 1950s).

Please buy any book on basic data modeling before you post again. Things like "first class", etc. our values in the category scale. They are not attributes! Do you understand the difference between a value and an attribute? I'm going to guess that you meant for those numbers to be a count of flights on those flight segments. I wish you would learn to tell us these things.

Here's an attempt at fixing up your non-table

CREATE TABLE Trips
(trip_segment CHAR(5) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
departure_airport_code CHAR(3) NOT NULL,
arrival_airport_code CHAR(3) NOT NULL,
trip_class VARCHAR(15) NOT NULL
CHECK (trip_class IN ('First_Class', 'Economy'),
flight_cnt INTEGER NOT NULL CHECK (flight_cnt >0));

INSERT INTO Trips
VALUES
('001', 'STL', 'JFK', 'First Class', 11)
('001', 'STL', 'JFK', 'Economy',  166)
('002', 'STL', 'DXB', 'Economy', 21),
('002', 'STL', 'DXB', 'First Class', 13),
etc.

>> I would like to know how many passengers have flown to JFK and DXB. <<

SELECT SUM(flght_cnt) AS flight_cnt_tot
FROM Trips
WHERE arrival_airport_code IN ('JFK', 'DXB');

• I can see that the row with STL and JFK is the result of SEG  1+2, and likewise that the row with JFK + DXB is SEG 2+3. But what determines that you want exactly these rows and with these key values?
