"... an enormous [b]number[/b] of fights". The word amount refers to non-countable nouns.
From my perspective, as countable as rice in a pot, so using the word amount is quite good in the current context.
it's so bad: an enormous number of flights take up an enormous amount of airspace
Go back to school. Terrible English.
