A number of posts in various threads have made passing comments about United's biggest markets, either UA-specific or in larger discussions of places like Denver and Chicago. So I did some playing with numbers and will post them below.

These are August 2011, UA+CO, domestic + international. Note that these stats are full-month actual operations divided by 31. So that means weekend schedule reductions and cancelations are factored into the average, and daily flights do not represent weekend peak.

I'm rather surprised to see ORD sneak ahead of IAH in some regards. Perhaps it's because a lot of Chicago's RJ flying has been upgraded to 51-99 seat category, while IAH still has an overwhelming diet of 50-seat in the regional fold.

It obviously depends on what determine 'biggest' to mean. Most Flights? IAH. Most Passengers? ORD. I personally see passengers as a better determinant of 'biggest', so in that case ORD is the biggest in my eyes.

Where are these numbers from? Not saying this information is incorrect but UA today has significantly more flights in many of the markets than these numbers indicate. Also, those passenger statistics are considerably different than those that I have. From my info, IAH is the largest by daily flights, seats, and passengers carried by a significant margin.

Interesting analysis. What surprises me the most is how close together a lot of the numbers for SFO, LAX and IAD are. What wasn't surprising was that LAX is a clear outlier in those numbers for int'l pax and flights, as UA has drawn down LAX int'l flying significantly over the years.

Thanks for pulling this data together.

I know that, I was asking about the source of the data. From the stats I had for 2009/2010, IAH had nearly 70,000 daily seats by CO, ORD had similar numbers for UA; I find it hard to believe that number has fallen to less than 50,000, putting it in the same leagues as hubs like MSP, DTW, and ORD for AA. Also, for just today IAH has around 650 UA/UA Express flights, and it's April. August is peak flying season so that number of 610 daily flights also seems quite low. Where was this data obtained from because I don't believe it's correct.

The busiest days of the week are up around 200, but Saturdays, for example, are far less. Still 127 does seem low.

What's your point? It's the smallest hub, of course it is. Why is that even worth saying unless you're just trying to crap on CLE again?

Keep in mind, each one is very different, and not really full hubs.

IAD essentially is only a 1/2 hub with hub activity during the afternoon/evening. Rather quiet rest of the day.
SFO is essentially a hub during the noon Asia rush, and large spoke/focus city rest of the day.
LAX is simply a huge spoke/focus city. Yes you can connect to Hawaii and intra-CA, but much of the flying is designed to support local demand, not connectivity.

127 seems low enough to question accuracy of the numbers. enilria gave 170 departures as the average daily number for 2012. I'd guess 2011 should be very close to that.

That can't be right, even with day-of-week cancellations. CLE must keep an average of 170 UA/UAX departures per day in order to avoid contractual penalties with the City of Cleveland. Are you sure those numbers include former CO Connection operations (C5/3M)? That's the only explanation I can think of for the discrepancy.

All your other numbers appear to be good.

With 65% of departures at ORD in aircraft carrying 99 or less passengers? I'm not... and you can experience it in taxing around O'Hare any day: lots of activity and many, many RJ's.

The data comes from the T100's, information directly reported by the airlines to the DoT.

http://www.transtats.bts.gov/Tables....riers&DB_Short_Name=Air%20Carriers

Feel free to proof the data if you'd like. Be sure to use both the domestic segement and international segment tables, and pull August 2011. I used numbers for flights departing those cities (ORD, SFO, CLE, IAH, etc). If anything numbers might be a tad high because I didn't spend a ton of time trying to weed out things like if Skywest operated ORD-CVG for both UA* and DL*, the numbers are combined.

As I originally said, day of week reductions and flight cancelations bring the average down. CO* does tons of that in particular. When we hear of someone offering X flights per day, that's typcially weekday peak, not an average.

Here's the detail info on number of flights opreated from Cleveland for the entire month of August on UA/UA*/CO/CO*. Before anyone jumps in and says UA/CO did not fly CLE-DTW in August 2011 (for example) you must recognize that things like charters, repo flights, and diversions show up in these stats. So if a CO* EWR-DTW diverted to CLE because of T-storms, and then later flew onward from CLE to DTW, that shows up in the T100 stats alongside all the scheudled flights.

YOUR NUMBERS ARE WRONG AT BOTH CLE AND LAX:

In CLE you are missing CommutAir which has a huge turboprop hub operating as United Express:

4 ERI Monday April 16,2012
3 PIT
3 MDT
4 SYR
4 BUF
3 ROC
2 IND (not including RJS)
2 SBN
2 GRR (not including 2 RJs)
3 FNT
3 CMH (not including 1 RJ)
2 CVG

CLE has around 180-200 flights a day. I know this is accurate as I have connections with UA CLE employees.

LAX has around 220 flights a day, NOT 260. I know this is accurate as I have direct sources at UA LAX which I am not at liberty to discuss.

Bottom Line: The information is wrong.....

For starters remember the OPer data is for August 2011 - a peak summer period.

But if you want current info, the LAX total is 209 departures for Monday April 16th. Nothing secret about that.

I am sorry I am not getting my point across. I know that CLE had more than 120 flights a day last August. Thats all. I also was making a point that his last August stats didn't reflect Comutair flights, which I gave examples of how he is missing markets like CLE-SYR/ERI/SBN that were operating last August and are operating tomorrow morning.

Maybe you can compare to the data in this thread: UA Summer 2011 Hub/Focus City Departure Breakdown (by FSDan Apr 17 2011 in Civil Aviation) which is based on June 30, 2011 data.

It lists 207 CLE flights.

For August 2011, the original data set IS missing one RJ round-trip on Chautauqua and three Dash-8-200 Commutair round-trips between CLE and CMH. Again, begs the question, were all Continental, Continental Express, AND Continental Connection flights included in the original data set?

I'm not a CLE cheerleader, just looking for an accurate data set.

You're correct -- looks like there's trouble with both CommutAir and Chautauqua numbers in the query I ran. I'm on vacation playing with this stuff and don't have any printed materials here to cross check anything at the moment.

Looking at CLE first, when I rerun with corrections, it comes to 181/day. That does make more sense, and when I see the cities C5 and RP bring to the table, it is clear they were missing even without having other material to cross check it with.

I'll see about taking a look at the other cities, and will figure out if we have similar issues elsehwere. Because the T100's are by operating carrier and not branded airline, it's tough to figure out who belongs with whom.

If looking up by carrier, in August 2011, CLE had ops by Gulfstream, Colgan, CommutAir, Shuttle America, Chautauqua, TransStates, ExpressJet, SkyWest...all on behalf of United/Continental.

I'm curious to know if you'll be able to determine whether, for example, a given Shuttle flight was on behalf of US, DL, UA?

There's no way to tell from the T100's -- hence I mentioned earlier that there can be issues of overcount in places where a regional serves multiple masters, such as ORD-CVG which may be Skywest as DL* or UA*. I don't think it's likely to be a large number because the non-hub airline (DL, in this case) does not operate many flights into the UA/CO hub (ORD), and what they do is spread among many airlines, not just Skywest (in this example.)

As I mentioned earlier, I'll take a closer look to see if I have regionals missing like I did with CLE -- I don't think I had Chautauqua or CommuteAir anyplace so that might mean more revisions than just Cleveland. In the mean time here's a quick list of the included airlines at each of the eight cities. If anyone sees something they are pretty sure is missing, please chime in:

There don't appear to be any Shuttle America flights at CLE in August 2011.

I know that, I was asking about the source of the data. From the stats I had for 2009/2010, IAH had nearly 70,000 daily seats by CO, ORD had similar numbers for UA; I find it hard to believe that number has fallen to less than 50,000,

You're talking capacity, while these numbers are passengers. If you scale back a few percentage points (since airlines did reduce in recent years) and then factor in that they don't fly at 100% load factor, you can get to 50k or less fairly easily.

I think UA needs to introduce Focus Cities to their route network......

With UA's hubs in EWR, IAD, CLE, ORD, IAH, DEN, LAX, SFO, GUM and more or less, NRT; I don't think they need any focus cities. DCA, for example, is served by the major UA hubs already, as is BOS. Heading west, SEA has flights to non-hubs (PDX and ANC) as well as all of the other hubs. I guess my point is, with so many hubs, UA already has some de facto focus cities.

This data can provide fuel for Southwest to start international operations in HOU. UA has been constantly bombarding Houston area stating that it is the largest hub with the largest passenger base. Now that it is no longer the case, Southwest can now start the international operations very soon since the Houston city council will approve the "building permit" for Southwest.

Maybe you can compare to the data in this thread: UA Summer 2011 Hub/Focus City Departure Breakdown (by FSDan Apr 17 2011 in Civil Aviation) which is based on June 30, 2011 data.

These figures are more accurate and are similar to the numbers I had from that same period. In the thread from last summer, IAH was the largest hub by nearly every metric, with ORD in second place.

That would be true if last summer the airlines weren't running load factors close to 90%, but they were. While daily seats and passengers carried aren't the same, for any time post-9/11 they should be pretty close; airlines have been close to capacity on flights for quite a while.

One thing to remember about the high % of RJ flights: those flights tend to be shorter than mainline so there will be more of them. Still, it's always strange to see so many RJ's at a hub like ORD where once there was so much mainline.

I think it's interesting to see how the number of international passengers at EWR is more than double that of IAH, even though the flight ops are not so far apart. All that flying of E145's to every landing strip in Mexico certainly brings down those numbers when you compare it to the 757's and better they are flying across the Atlantic from EWR!

Don't believe everything you read. Given that we've already talked about the flaws in the DOT reporting I can tell you the actuals vary significantly from those figures. IAH actually has more INTL dep than EWR, think about their Mexico Operation...

...but most of UAs IAH-Mexico flights are either RJs or 737 service. EWRs international operations are primarily 752s and up in size with 737 flights to the Caribbean. I don't think that it is too much of a stretch to belive that EWR handles more international passengers.

If you have the numbers of flights or passengers carried out of a particular city there should be no issue with you posting them. That info is easy enough to get through the DOT....revenue numbers are about the only thing that are held close to the vest when it comes to a breakdown by city.

Another problem you will have counting by operator is that Chautauqua, for example, has operated out of CLE for more than one major carrier simultaneously.

It is frustrating that only operating carrier shows, and while in some cases good detictive work can help you figure out what's what, sometimes it's simply impossible. In pulling together these numbers I did some on-the-fly pulls -- like even though Mesa does some UA* flying, the only Newark route on YV was to Charlottle, and clearly that was a US* market and not UA*/C0*. I pulled the numbers for my own interest and figured some mild inaccuraces due to how the DoT has airlines report wouldn't be a big deal. (But of course I underestimated a.net...)

Missing regionals, on the other hand, is definitely a big enough issue to seek out and correct. So if anyone see anything missing, please point it out. I'm especially interested if there's something clearly missing at IAH or something which does not belong at LAX, for those seem to be especially hot topics for some here.

And...as I have mentioned before....I welcome anyone who would like to go to the T100 stats for August 2011 and pull the numbers and look for issues. I am sure you might find some small junky differences, like if Skywest flew some DEN-SLC for both UA* and DL* and I didn't catch and weed out Delta. We've identified a few regionals missing at some airports, like Commutair and Chautauqua at Cleveland. Hopefully there are no others, but perhaps feedback and help make sure there are no further errors there. I do not think anything further is wrong in my selection, filtering and compilation, but I'll take another look.

Here are Houston's flights, international first and then domestic. As with CLE earlier, please look to see if anything seems clealry missing or short. I don't think CO/CO*/UA/UA* was operated by anyone other than the mainline carriers and Skywest, ExpressJet, Colgan, and Shuttle America, all of which are included.

Thanks for pulling all of the data...its interesting to see how the different hubs each have their own strengths.

I have no idea of which airlines were operating out of the different hubs back in August of 2011 but you may want to check Chautauqua and TransStates for IAH. Both currently fly for UAX at IAH.

If there's something inaccurate in this detail, please point it out.

Looks like you pretty much nailed it with EWR. I only see a discrepancy of 11 departures on the month total, so that's close enough to call a wash.

Not that it matters much, but last year CLE had a few daily TransStates flights to places like STL that departed from the D Concourse piers.

Yup, but it started in September...nonstops to STL, BOS, DAY, PWM and MHT, the final two less than daily.

So, there seem to be several big international flights which are missing: AMS, CDG, FRA, LHR, along with BZE, BOG, YYC, CUN, CCS, CZM, YEG, GCM, LIM, and YVR. That's a lot of missing international seats, since most of these are mainline. CUN is 5-6 daily round-trips alone. LHR gets 2 777's.

Thanks for seeing that -- clearly those are missing. I'll take a look and figure out what's up.
